Pampered Chef RockCrok Recipes - Midwest Goodness (1)

My personal review: The Rock Crok has helped me get quick dinners on the table because it goes everywhere in the kitchen and then right into the dishwasher. I save $25-$40 every time I use it because it’s one more night we aren’t going out to eat (expensive) and I’m in control of the ingredients (which means way less salt and calories than restaurant meals).

How do you use the the Pampered Chef RockCrok?

You can use the RockCrok on several different heat surfaces for cooking:

  • Microwave
  • Oven
  • Stovetop
  • Grill
  • Broiler

One thing to note: Always match the diameter of your Rock Crok to the diameter of your burner on your stove.

Also: There is no need to pre-season it before you cook with it.

To cook with it, preheat the Rock Crok on the stove top or the grill for 3-4 minutes over medium heat (do not use high heat as it takes on heat very well and will disperse the heat very evenly throughout the pot).

For microwave or broiler or oven cooking, there is no need to preheat the Rock Crok.

Can you use the Rock Crok on a glass-top stove?

Yes, it is safe to do that. I have a glass top stove and use it all the time. Just be sure to match the size of the burner to the size of the Rock Crok.

What can you cook in it?

You can cook many types of dishes in the Rock Crok. If you are used to making one-pot meals, casseroles, soups, chilis, stews, and even pasta dishes on the stovetop, you can make these in the Rock Crok easily. Just use the appropriate size for the recipe (the Rock Crok comes in 2.5 quart and 4 quart sizes).

Can the lid go in the oven?

Yes, it can go in the oven. However, it cannot be used with the broiler.

Can you boil water in the Rock Crok?

Yes, you can boil water in the Rock Crok for pasta. Only set the heat level to medium. The Rock Crok retains heat very well and can quickly get too hot if set on a higher temperature.

Can you use the Rock Crok on a grill?

Yes, it is safe to use on a grill. Just pre-heat the grill and the Rock Crok at the same time for 3-4 minutes before adding food to it.

Is the Rock Crok toxic?

No, it is not toxic. It is made from clay and glazed with food-safe materials.

My Rock Crok cracked, what do I do?

The Rock Crok is covered by a five year warranty by manufacturer defects. It is not covered if you drop it and it shatters. To check your warranty, you can call 1-888-OUR-CHEF for customer service.

Some things to note:

  • Thermal shock can happen if you take it from the freezer and put it in the oven or on the stovetop or in the microwave. The temperature change is too great. This would not be a covered warranty issue.
  • If you are preheating the Rock Crok longer than 3-4 minutes without food inside, you run the risk of it cracking due to the heat. Add the ingredients at the 3-4 minute mark.
  • Whenever you are cooking with the Rock Crok, be sure you have the surface covered at least ⅔ with food. If it isn’t, you run the risk of cracking because of an empty hot surface.

Pampered Chef RockCrok Recipe Ideas:

How can you make a whole chicken in the Rock Crok?

Yes! It’s called 30 Minute Chicken. Simply brush the outside of a whole chicken with canola oil and add seasonings as desired. Then place in the Rock Crok, breast-side up and microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 25-30 minutes or until temperature of chicken reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
