How to Make a Fog Machine in a Slow Cooker

A dry ice fog machine idea you didn't know you could make!

By: Liz Bradley from Halloween Alliance

Gear up for your next Halloween celebration with this guide on How to Make a Fog Machine in a Slow Cooker. It's easy to make your own dry ice fog machine using your slow cooker with just a few simple steps and only two ingredients. Use your homemade fog machine for a Halloween party, prop it near your door for trick-or-treaters, or prep it and have it smoke while you watch a spooky movie. It's fun and easy!

Ingredients & Notes

For this dry ice fog machine, you'll need a slow cooker, water, gloves, a hammer, and dry ice.
Note: You can get dry ice at your local grocery store – just ask the cashier to have someone get it for you. You will need gloves – never ever touch dry ice with your bare hands. It is so cold, it will burn you.

What can you do with your fog machine: One cool idea would be to put your fog machine inside of a cauldron or a pumpkin with holes in it for the fog to flow out. This is low-floating fog, so if you want fog to flow out the top of a pumpkin, don’t put any holes in the bottom or it will all go that way. Small, single-serving slow cookers can fit in most pumpkins and can be purchased for less than $15 at many retailers.

Remember not to touch the dry ice, and please crack a window if you run it inside. The dry ice produces a lot of carbon dioxide, which can push out the oxygen in a room and give you a headache. And the best reminder of all is to have fun!


1. First, fill your cooker about halfway with water and turn it on HIGH.

2. With a hammer, break up your dry ice into manageable chunks.

3. When you have some manageable chunks, carefully drop them in and watch the fog bubble up. Because your homemade fog machine works so well, it will gobble up dry ice fairly quickly, so be ready with more chunks.

Feel free to place your slow cooker in a pumpkin or cauldron and let it smoke.

What a cool idea for my annual Halloween parties! I always wanted a DIY for a fog machine, but I never knew that it could be done directly inside my existing crock pot. I definetly need to pass this on to my sister, as well. This would work great on the front porch where you have an outside outlet. Put it inside a giant cauldren and watch the magic happen!
