Slow cookers prove that good things come to those who wait. Putting your favourite ingredients in a slow cooker at the start of the day means that by dinner time you’ll have delicious beef stroganoff, pulled pork or veggie casserole waiting for you.
Slow cookers from Appliances Online come in a variety of different sizes to better suit different households. Investing in a large capacity slow cooker means you can create enough pumpkin soup, beef stew, Indian curry or Hungarian goulash to last an entire week.
Low-temperature slow-cookers are safe to use over long periods, so you can feel confident about leaving them unattended. For added stability and safety, choose a slow cooker with non-slip feet, cord storage and heat-resistant handles.
Several different slow cookers include a pan that can go right onto your stove’s cooktop, allowing you to brown and sear your meat before slow cooking all in the same pot, saving you time and effort washing up. For additional convenience, many slow cookers also include dishwasher-safe parts.
A slow cooker with an electronic timer and LCD display is a sensible choice as it will show you the cooking time remaining at a glance. Choosing a slow cooker with a delay start option will be worth it if you plan on timing your cooking precisely to be ready when you get home from work.
Selected slow cookers from Morphy Richards and Sunbeam double as other cooking appliances, including pressure cookers and even deep fryers, which is ideal if you cook in different styles or have limited space available in your kitchen. For added value, look for a slow cooker with a good energy rating.
