Want to get the most out of your slow cooker? Here are our top tips

Slow cooking is one of the best ways to enjoy tasty and easy meals that make the most of their ingredients. Not to mention the sheer joy of coming home after a long day at work to find a prepared dinner (even better when you’ve forgotten you even did it in the morning, a tasty surprise!). Follow our simple tips below, and your slow cooker will be your new best friend in the kitchen.

  2. .

  3. If you have a large slow cooker, make extra portions of stews, stews, and curries, etc. and freeze the extras for quick, hassle-free meals during the week.
  4. Use your slow cooker to cook meat joints like gammon, and then use it for several meals throughout the week: sandwiches, salads, tortillas, or a cheeky ham, egg, and chips. Once you have cut the ham, you can also freeze it.
  5. Do not lift the lid. Removing the lid during cooking releases all the precious heat and steam inside, a great no-no, as it means your food will dry out and take longer to cook.
  6. Slow cooker recipes don’t need as much liquid. This is because it doesn’t evaporate much during cooking, so it’s important not to add too much water, broth, or alcohol to your recipe.
  7. If your prescription calls for a dairy product like cream, don’t add it to the end, or it will curdle.
