Crock Pot is a Food structure that allows the player to combine four food items into a recipe for cooking. It takes 40 seconds to cook an average recipe (exact times are listed in each individual recipe). All Crock Pot dishes can be stacked up to 40. Spoiled Food used in Crock Pot will have the spoilage value averaged among the ingredients and halved. While resting in the Crock Pot, the cooked meal will not spoil.
A Science Machine is required to unlock the crafting recipe of Crock Pot.
A Crock Pot has four item slots that can be filled by placing the item onto the Crock Pot itself or any of the slots. Only one item can be placed in each slot.
Items that can be used as ingredients are raw and cooked Vegetables; all raw and cooked Meats, including Fish and Frog Legs; Honey and Honeycombs; Butterfly Wings; raw and cooked Tallbird Egg; Butter; and finally Twigs.
Crock Pot meals themselves cannot be cooked further.
These ingredients count as Monster Food towards making Monster Lasagna:
Crock Pot MealsEdit
- Most recipes accept cooked variants of ingredients. Exceptions: and
- If there is more that one matching recipe for given ingredients the game will pick one with the highest priority. If there is more than one recipe with highest priority the game will pick at random.

any valid recipe
Before looking into the mechanism, here are some reminders:
- Some Crock Pot dishes give fewer hunger/health points than the sum of their components. E.g. it's better to just eat 4× [+12 +50 ] than to make a [+3 +25 ] with them.
- Placing more than 1 Monster Food (, , , , ) will result in Monster Lasagna in most cases, unless Twigs have been added.
The outcome of the Crock Pot is not randomly decided between recipes. It can be cooked with the given ingredients. Each recipe can require certain items to be present, for example Meatballs requires one of the Meats and can never be cooked without any. Similarly, recipes can exclude certain items, for example Dragonpie excludes Meats and can never be cooked if meat is included.
Each recipe has a priority rating, which decides what the result of the current cooking session will be. The recipe with the highest rating will always be chosen. If there are several recipes with the same importance, a random recipe will be chosen. Some recipes have importance of 0 or below, which means they will never be chosen over other recipes. Such as, Wet Goop, which is always a valid result, but never chosen over anything else due to having -2 importance. The only exception is 0 importance recipes Fist Full of Jam, Fruit Medley and Ratatouille, which appear to always get chosen in that order.
Crock Pot requires 4 food items, however some recipe requirements can be fulfilled with less than 4 items. In such recipes, the remaining slots can be filled by any cookable item that doesn't affect the original recipe or produce a different recipe. For example, Meatballs can be made with 1 Morsel. The remaining three slots could be 3 more Morsels or 3 Butter. However, adding Twigs will result in Kabobs, as they are higher importance than the Meatballs.
Here is an example of possible recipes from Fish + Cooked Frog Legs + Corn + Twigs: Fishsticks [Importance=10], Fish Tacos [Importance=10], Kabobs [Importance=5], Froggle Bunwich , Wet Goop [-2]. This means the result will be Fishsticks 50% and Fish Tacos 50% of the time, but not Kabobs or any other ones.
Meat recipes, instead of a certain number of Meat items, require a certain amount of "meatiness". Different meats have different meatiness values, these being:
The total meatiness is the sum of individual item meatiness. So, for example, makes 1, + make 1.5, and ++ make 1.5. This means (which requires >1.5 meatiness) can be cooked with 2× (=2) or 1× and 2× (=2.0), but not, for example, with 1× (=1) or 3× (=1.5).
Berries only count as half a whole Fruit. Thus, for example, recipes requiring Fruits will require at least 2 Berries to fulfill the requirement. Note, that Durian also counts as Monster Food as well as 1 fruit.
