Welcome to the Best Slow Cooker Guide. This comprehensive website has been designed to help you select the very best slow cooker possible for you. It is packed full of detailed product reviews, a comparison guide and lots of slow cooker recipes. I also answer some questions that people frequently ask me about slow cooking.
Why have I decided to create this website?
I have been cooking with Slow Cookers for nearly 7 years now. I bought our first slow cooker when I got married. Straight out of university and starting to progress our fledgling careers in the city. We would be out the door at 7.30am and back home at 7pm. Once home neither one of us was willing to cook but both really wanted to enjoy a good meal together. Tired of eating student meals of beans on toast, and without the money to spend on takeaways or eating out, we started to investigate slow cookers. They seemed the perfect solution. They appeared cheap to run, easy to use and could provide us with a hot, home cooked, nutritious meal at no matter what time we walked through the door. Perfect.
We are now fortunate to have a large, young family and find the slow cooker is just as useful (if not more). It sits on the side of our kitchen bubbling away while we dash to work, drive kids to school, take them to after school clubs and do the daily chores. Then, in the evening, we know we can come home hungry and immediately enjoy a warm, tasty, nutritious, home cooked meal together. No junk food, no hungry whining kids, and no arguing over who’s turn it is to cook.But which Slow Cooker should we buy? It was then that we realised just how tricky it was to select the right slow cooker for us. How big should it be? Should it have a timer? Does it go in the dishwasher? Can it be used on the gas hob? It was then I realised that a slow cooker guide would be really useful. Something which was easy to compare all the slow cookers with the details on each. I have also got a huge amount of experience now with cooking with a slow cooker and I wanted to include these so I had a comprehensive resource of facts, reviews, tips and recipes for slow cookers.
We have designed this comparison slow cooker guide to support and help you decide which slow cooker is right for YOU. We do all our own research and in-depth reviews. The recipes have been made by us and the tips are ones collated over the years which have been successfully cooked using our slow cookers.
We really hope you find the best slow cooker for you and have many happy days cooking with it.
