Once again, simple design, great results, convenience, and economics rise to the top. The humble slow cooker has been around a long time.
The expected steep rise in Fuel prices, in winter 2022 will make the slow cooker very popular, as it uses so little electricity.
Most Economical Cooker
If you are looking at slow cookers as a means to cook whilst lowering your fuel bills here is a comparison by electrical consumption ( on high setting )
- Crockpot Dura 220w
- Morphy Richards 290w
- Morphy Richards Digital 290w
- Russell Hobbs 350w
The latest models have a few nice features, without adding to the price of this simple device. I have compared the models on a similar size basis, for a family of 4, between 5 and 6.5 litres capacity to make a fair assessment.
Looking into slow cooking, you’ll want to use it for all the winter favourites like beef stews, vegetable stews, soups, casseroles, chicken chasseur, brisket, and chili con carne.
