When we mention slow cooking, we know what you might be thinking…

“I get home late from work, I’m exhausted and the last thing I want to do is have to start prepping a meal and then waiting hours for it to be ready. I’m all about the convenience.”

Well news flash, slow cooking is all about the convenience.

Picture this, you put 20 mins of prep time in the night before or in the morning, pop the ingredients in your slow cooker before you leave the house for work and voila! When you get home after a tiring day, you have a ready-to-roll, beautifully cooked meal you can eat when you want.

What’s more, not only will you be eating a delicious meal, using slow cookers are also very cost effective. Slow cookers are relatively cheap to buy, inexpensive to use and they're great for making the most of budget ingredients including some of the cheaper, secondary cuts. Plus, they offer a healthier, low-fat method of cooking – really, what's not to love? The only thing we can think of is you still have to do the washing up!
