Total Time 4 hours 2 minutes


  • 2 large or 4 small sweet potatoes.


  • Wash sweet potatoes under fresh water or scrub with vegetable brush to remove any dirt.
  • Place whole sweet potatoes directly into slow cooker bowl.
  • No liquids required, no piercing of the potatoes required ... literally just straight into the bowl as is.
  • Cover and cook on low for 4hrs depending on your cooker (I did these in my 3L which isn't overly hot so yours may take less time)
  • I used 2 very large ones but you could use 4 smaller ones instead or whatever fits into your slow cooker.
  • When finished you can scoop out the flesh easily with a fork for stuffed sweet potato or slice and eat as you wish 🙂

  1. I but 2 med. One’s in my sm. 1.5 Slow cooker on low all day about 6 hrs and they we’re perfect ! I put a sm. Rack under them so all I had to do was lift them up and I didn’t know what would happen if I put them straight to the bottom. My 1st ! Lol

  2. These weren’t great but they weren’t bad either. I fit 3 comfortably in my 6 litre and cooked them for 9 hours on low and they were still a little on the firm side. I will try these again another time
