In today’s hectic world, whether you cook for just yourself, you and a partner, or a large family it’s often all too easy just to drop by the burger bar or order in from the local takeaway come meal time. Convenient, yes, but it costs more to eat this way plus there is an additional cost to you and your family’s health if you miss out on proper meals too often.
A perfect solution to this is to invest in a slow cooker which allows you to prepare soups, pot roasts, or stews in advance and leave them to cook slowly all day whilst you are out. When you return your meal will be cooked perfectly.
So the question now is, which is the best small slow cooker for you?
If there are only one or two of you in the household, the Proctor-Silex 33116Y is an ideal choice. It has a 1.5-quart capacity, which is ample, and it is dishwasher safe so no need for elbow grease to get it clean. Best of all it is one of the lowest priced in the market so you’ll have enough for a nice bottle of wine to go with your slow cooked meal.
The Elite Gourmet MST-250XS is perfect if simplicity and ease of use are important to you. To operate it there is one dial with 3 settings, so it is simple enough for anyone to use. It has a modern, stainless steel finish and for easy cleaning, it can be put it in the dishwasher.
For something a little bit different, the Crockpot M250 Mini takes some beating. it has a beautiful, patterned design that looks attractive in any kitchen plus it has a larger 2.5-quart size just in case you need to cook for guests too.
When choosing the best small slow cooker for yourself the main points to consider are; the size required, ease of use, how easy it is to clean, and of course your budget. Happy cooking.
