The idea behind a slow cooker is that it will cook your food slowly. You can prepare your own ingredients in advance like meat, vegetables, herbs, or perhaps sauce/stock. Put these ingredients into the slow cooker, choose your desired setting and time, and let it do its job. Your dish will then be ready when it suits you best. The great thing about a slow cooker is that it is incredibly safe to leave on while you are away. Just make sure that the slow cooker is on a stable and has free space on the surface.
Saves time and effort: Prepare your ingredients, add them to your slow cooker, set the timer between 4 to 10 hours, and continue on with your day while the slow cooker prepares a delicious meal for you.
Saves money: You can use cheaper cuts of meat which will become deliciously tender in the slow cooker. You can also make extra food in a large slow cooker. That way you have tasty food for the next day.
Economical: Although the slow cooker is used throughout the day, it does not use any more power than that of a regular light bulb. The low setting uses between 75 and 150 watts and the high setting between 150 and 210 watts.
Tasty & healthy: A slow cooker helps to retain the delicious flavours. Because the temperature does not rise too high/quickly. This means that more vitamins, minerals, and liquids are retained when you cook in the Crock-pot!
