Nothing beats home-cooked food, but some tend to steer clear of the kitchen if they are strapped for time, or doubt their cooking abilities.

But there’s a solution for that: a slow cooker.

The nifty device is easy to use, and helps you recreate your favourite hearty dishes with minimal effort and minimum washing up too, which is always a bonus.

Whether you are making soups, a broth, stew, casserole, or a flavoursome curry, a slow cooker, or even a crumble for dessert, a slow cooker is the hero product to have in every household.

Morphy Richards’ Slow Cooker Sear and Stew has been hailed the “best slow cooker I have owned” device to buy from customers.

The cooking pot is an aluminium non-stick shatterproof pot, which can hold up to 3.5 litres.

Plus, it comes with a glass lid, so you can monitor the contents without having to remove the top, unlike opaque ceramic pots.

The slow cooker has three different heat settings, from low, to medium and high, depending on what you are cooking.

The kitchen essential allows you to seal any meat or vegetables you are using, before you leave your dish to simmer.

To top it all off the slow cooker is dishwasher safe, so you don’t have to waste time doing the washing up.

Customers also rave about the product of Amazon, which has received almost 90% worth of five star reviews.

One shopper wrote: “The best cooking appliance I have ever bought. It is just so easy to use and very easy to clean.

“If you don't have time or you don't want to stand in the kitchen on weekends (like me) but still want to provide a delicious meal... This slow cooker is great! Not only for dinner but also desserts.”

Another shared: “An excellent slow cooker, nice finish, easy to clean, very light, a non slip mat placed underneath stops it sliding around the work top, the inner pot on the stove does slide around so needs an oven glove or similar to hold it steady whilst searing food in it.

“So good we bought it twice, one red and one brushed silver, an advantage to any kitchen.”
