There’s no better antidote to the snow and ice than a good hearty stew or casserole. They’re so easy to make, often involving little more than chopping up a few vegetables and some meat and throwing in a handful of herbs, and the process is even easier if you use a slow cooker. These are great if you’re out at work all day and want to get home to a fulfilling home-cooked meal, but the choice out there can make buying one confusing. Fear not, as here are ten of the best to give you delicious, wholesome grub at the flick of a switch.
If you’re looking for a great value option, you can’t go wrong with a Tesco SCSS12 3L Slow Cooker, a large Cookworks 6.5L Slow Cooker in Stainless Steel or an Andrew James 3.5 Litre Premium Black Slow Cooker. If you only have a small household and don’t want to cook too far ahead, you’ll probably want a smaller option that holds two litres or less.
