Choosing a slow cooker
We have many of your favourite brands including Crock-Pot and a Morphy Richards slow cooker that have great features like a digital searing option, shallow fry and even steam, so they are a versatile small kitchen appliance. Select your heat and timer settings and once the time is up it will switch over to the 'auto keep warm' setting. The hob proof pot means it can be used safely on the hob in order for you to brown meat or add the finishing touches to your meal. They come with removable or hinged lids, and many with a ceramic or non-stick coated pot, ideal for both serving and cleaning afterwards. They come in a range of sizes, ranging from smaller models that are great for individual use, to large slow cookers ideal for families or batch cooking.
