Buyers Guide – What To Look For In A Slow Cooker

After its modest beginnings as a bean cooker in 1970s America, the slow cooker has become a common feature in kitchens the world over and is the simplest and most economical way to make everything from soups to stews.

But with the vast array of slow cookers out there, how do you know which one to choose? Read on…

Size matters…

The first thing to consider is the size of cooker that you’ll need – there’s no point buying a cheaper 3.5litre model if you’ve a family of five to feed. On the other hand, you don’t want to be splashing out on a larger crock pot if you’ll not fully utilise it.

So think about when and how you’ll be using the cooker and buy accordingly; as a rule of thumb, the smaller models will cook for two or three people, the largest versions will do for about eight.

…and so do features.

Although they all do the same job, not all slow cookers are built to the same specification, but there are some features that you should always look out for:

Removable cooking pot – this allows you to serve food straight from the pot and ensure no heat is lost.
Glass lid – so you can see how the food is coming along without removing the lid.
Timer – a timer is essential to avoid over-cooking food. Also try to pick one with a keep warm function.
Three heat settings - a lot of cookers only come with two heat settings, which is adequate, but three will give you that extra control over cooking.

If you are likely to be transporting the cooker, if you make a chilli for a party for instance, then a cooker with a locking lid is essential.

Anything else?

Although no other utensils are needed there are a couple of things you could buy to compliment your cooking. For instance, a recipe book for slow cooking ideas, a good range of knives, spatulas and spoons for preparing food and containers in various size so you can freeze any leftovers.
