The Morphy Richards Build Quality and Everyday Use
What is the Morphy Richards Slow cooker like to work with? The large inner pot is aluminium as with many slow cookers, so its not going to work on an induction hob.
You can however sear meat in it on a gas hob (or elect ) It’s nice and light to move around, my own ceramic pot slow cooker is a monster to cart around the kitchen!
Very convenient to use, leave the leftovers in there, in the fridge ready to reheat tomorrow.
For economy, tend towards the minimum setting, at 290 watts on high, the Morphy Richards Slow cooker has a powerful heater. The 3 heat settings seemed a little over-warm. A few comments from buyers said it was cooking quicker than the booklet suggested. Be sure to fill the cooker with boiling stock, up to the specified level, to avoid overcooking, and definitely use the low level if you are extending the time beyond 10 hours.

What the buyers said about the Crockpot
Bought this as the one I was using was very heavy – this is easy to move around and the cooking pot can be used on the hob to brown ingredients before putting on to slow cook.
This slow cooker is easy to use, easy to clean and the recipes we have tried have been delicious.
A great time saving device that does all the hard work while you relax, wonderful purchase.
Super bit of 5 Star kit. Fry and braise your meat on the hob in the pot and then slow cook to perfection. So this little beauty might not have a timer but it does everything else perfectly and at a great price too. Oh, did I say that it is so easy to clean the non-stick pot after use as well…

Conclusion and Rating
Good product, quite well made, simple layout, reasonable price, for something that with care should last very well.
As it can’t be left unattended, with it having no timer, I can only award it 5/10. But if you’re in the kitchen all day like me, it’s absolutely fine.
I was slightly put off by the cooking pot material and coating, although described as “Ceramic” this type of coating does tend to scratch, so only use Silicon Tools or Wooden ones.
It is ideal for all users, having a nice lightweight bowl.
