Why buy a slow cooker?

25 Nov 2015, 15:51

There are few kitchen appliances that I could not do without, but my slow cooker is definitely one of those.  It makes it so easy to have a hot, home cooked and delicious meal ready for the family with the minimum of fuss and effort.

It really can be as easy as chopping up some chicken and fresh vegetables, adding some gravy and switching it on in the morning ..... then come home in the evening to the mouth watering smell of a nutritious chicken stew, hot and ready to serve.  Throw in some fresh meat and a cooking sauce for a quick curry!  Or slow cook the family a delicious joint of meat with some potatoes and vegetables.

Slow cookers are extremely versatile and you can use them to cook a wide variety of meals and deserts.  A lot of slow cookers come with a recipe book, although a quick Google search for 'slow cooker recipes' will bring you more meal suggestions than you could imagine!

Its quick and easy for people with very busy lives, its table top cooking at its best for anyone without a cooker or who has difficulty using a conventional cooker, and its perfect for those just starting out in the kitchen and learning to cook

Slow cooking allows food to retain its goodness and flavour, and is a great method of cooking less expensive cuts of meat to ensure maximum flavour and tenderness, avoiding it becoming tough by being cooked too quickly

Slow cookers come in many different sizes, from the mini 1.5 litre capacity designed for 1 person cooking, to the generous 6.5 litre capacity which is perfect for large families or for feeding guests.  Try not to go for a larger size than you need, as cooking with the slow cooker nearly full is the optimum way to use your appliance.

Slow cookers are simple by nature, and don't have lots of gadgets or extra bits, they just don't need it.  Most have high, low and auto settings, which is all you need.  The majority of slow cookers have a removable pot, so you can take it to the table and serve directly from the pot, and to make cleaning easy.  Some slow cookers have pots which can be used on your cooker top or oven as well, which can be handy depending on what you want to cook.

Slow cookers are low energy appliances, so are safe to leave switched on while you are out of the house.  They are also economical, so don't worry that they will use too much power .... they won't.

So, what are you waiting for?  Browse our wide range of slow cookers, find the perfect one for you, and enjoy some nutritious and delicious home cooked food with minimum effort!
