When we scoured Amazon for the best-rated slow cookers, the Crock-Pot won out as the best programmable option. Not only is this slow cooker a whopping five litres, but the programmable digital timer allows you to customise the cooking time for optimum results. It’s currently a third off, at £74 (down from £110).
The LED display lets you see how long is left until the cooking is done, and 22 reviewers say they love the cooker’s “keep warm” setting, whereby a meal will stay warm on a low temperature after the timer is done. Happy customers say it can feed five to six people easily. The removable ceramic inner dish is usable on a hob for browning or searing meat, and the nonstick surface is easy to clean, too. One reviewer, who bought it after their slow cooker of 20 years finally packed it in, says the specific timer settings help make a superb fig sponge pudding for a crowd.
