Advantages One of the best time saving appliances in the kitchen
I am well and trully hooked on my Morphy Richards slow cooker !!Just imagine opening the front door on a cold winter evening after a day at work and being greeted by the delicious smells of a lamb hotpot, beef stew or chicken curry wafting out from your slow cooker. But slow cookers are NOT only for winter, in the summer, using the slow cooker generates a lot less heat than from a normal oven. So at any time of year, a slow cooker makes life a little more convenient and uses less electricity.
The direct heat from the pot together with the lengthy cooking and steam created inside the tightly-covered container destroy bacteria and make the slow cooker a safe process for cooking foods.
The Morphy Richards is a basic design with a 3.5 litre capacity which is plenty big enough for a family of four ( I use it for five when my son in law visits and it is fine)
The cooker has a toughened glass lid and the pot itself is dishwasher safe and has has three temperature settings, low, medium and high.
The principle of the slow cooker is that it cooks foods slowly at a low temperature—generally between 170° and 280° F. The low heat means that you can use less expensive cuts of meat and that leaner cuts of meat become tender and shrink less.
In my opinion the slow cooker is one of the most essential pieces of equipment you can have in the kitchen. It means that you can add the worst quality meat, and when it has finished cooking, it will be the most tender meat you have ever tasted !!Once you own a slow cooker you'll wonder how you ever managed without one!
So basically to use your cooker, add the pot to the cooker before switching it on , add your ingredients and make sure the lid is securely in place. Switch the cooker to your required setting and a red light show that the cooker is on. That is it - the dinner will cook as you work, shop etc.
I am really pleased with my Morphy Richards cooker - I think the price I paid was perhaps a little under the RRP but they average at £20 and it is well worth the money.
