Morphy Richards cream Sear and Stew 3.5L slow cooker.
Slow cookers are marvellous for busy people, they can be switched on before leaving home and you can return to a nice hot, healthy meal.
This particular cooker was £29.99 although cheaper models are available, such as this one at £10 from Tesco. The sear and stew has an aluminium pot that can be used on the hob to fry and seal meat before you set the slow cooker going if you wish, an added bonus over other cookers.
It has low, medium and high settings. The pot and lid are dishwasher safe.
