Life moves pretty fast, so sometimes it’s nice to bring the pace down once in a while. Slow cookers are actually a great resource for those short on time, as they enable you to throw in your ingredients and walk away until it’s all cooked hours later.
The Crock-Pot 3.5L Slow Cooker is the perfect size to cater for 3-4 people, or enough for you to stock up with leftovers for the week ahead, and has an attractive stainless steel finish. It looks nice, but more importantly, it’s also dishwasher and oven safe. Simply prepare your ingredients, place them in the stoneware bowl before you go to work, set the heat setting to low and be welcomed home to the aroma of a delicious slow-cooked meal!
And don’t think it’s just casseroles, chillis and curries that can be cooked in a slow cooker (although they are fantastic). You can also prepare pot roasts, soups and even desserts. There are two heat settings, plus a keep-warm function. It even comes with recipes.
