Why Use a Slow Cooker?

Aside from creating delicious, hearty and wholesome homemade meals, a slow cooker is a wonderfully versatile yet economic small kitchen appliance. Yes, they make brilliant casseroles and stews, turning even tough cuts of meat into tender, juicy moresales, but they will also cook cakes, puddings, sauces and more. 

How Does a Slow Cooker Work?

When you use a slow cooker the inner pot is heated up, as it gets hotter heat is transferred up through the food and the sides of the pot, cooking the contents over a number of hours. This slow cooker comes with three different settings;

  • Low - Use for cooking meats such as pork, chicken, lamb or beef. The temperature is low but still sufficient to cook the food thoroughly when left over a longer time period.
  • High - Normally used for sauces and dips where you only want to cook the contents for a couple of hours.
  • Auto - Starts on high then switches to low once it has reaches a preset temperature. The time taken to do this depends on how much food is put in the cooker initially and whether it is frozen or defrosted. 

Top Tip: Vegetables often take longer to cook than meats so place these at the bottom of the inner pot when you start cooking.

What Can I Make In A Slow Cooker?

Pulled pork, roast chicken, beef stroganoff, chilli con carne…… OK, so you may be familiar with cooking that type of dish in a slow cooker but have you ever tried pineapple upside down cake, chocolate brownies, a full english breakfast? You may have to prep some ingredients on the stove or in a frying pan, but most recipes are easily adapted to slow cooker versions. Check out the extra info tab for inspirational slow cooker recipes.

Are Slow Cookers Healthy?

As with most things, slow cookers can be as healthy as you want them to be. One of the main benefits is the decreased need for oil and fats. The ceramic inner bowls of the Andrew James slow cookers are non-stick and because this cooking method helps to retain moisture you food remains tender and succulent without the need to add any extra butter, lard or oil.

What Makes Slow Cookers So Economical?

A slow cooker only heats up to about half of the temperature of a conventional oven, and you are only heating a small area, so the amount of energy required to produce that heat is significantly reduced. Furthermore, the tempered glass lid helps to retain heat within the cooker whilst allowing you to see how cooking is progressing so you don’t release heat by needing to lift the lid.

As well as requiring less energy, you can save money by bulk purchasing, bulk cooking and even by buying cheaper cuts of meat. Slow cookers are brilliant for turning tough cuts into something infinitely more tasty that you get with a conventional oven because of the moisture they are able to retain. With our larger ovens you can cook plenty of portions then seal and freeze them for later. For meals with a high moisture content freeze then vacuum seal to make them last even longer.

Is This Slow Cooker Dishwasher Safe?

You should only wash this inner ceramic cooking pot and the glass lid in warm soapy water with a soft cloth. The non-stick surface helps reduce the amount of cleaning required but if any food persists after rinsing leave it to soak for a few hours. The exterior of the slow cooker can be cleaned by wiping down with a damp, soft cloth.

Product FAQs
How Many Settings Are There?

With this Andrew James Slow Cooker, there are 3 settings - high, low, and auto. High: around 95 degrees, Low: around 85 degrees, Auto: Cooks for 4 hours on high and then switches to low.

How Do I Use My Slow Cooker?

Most meat and vegetable recipes require 8 to 10 hours on LOW, 4 to 6 hours on HIGH, and 5 to 7 hours on AUTO.

Will My Food Keep Warm When the Slow Cooker is Switched off?

After your food is cooked, switch the slow cooker off and leave it covered with the lid on. There will be enough heat in the ceramic pot to keep it warm for 30 minutes. If you require the food to keep warm for longer, simply switch your slow cooker to the LOW setting.

Can I Add The Butter & Flavouring Into The Machine?

No. Do not add any flavours, salt, sweeteners, butter or oil to the machine. All flavours and seasoning should be added to the popcorn once it has been popped and removed from the machine. You can use the measuring cup to melt your butter but don’t pour it into the machine.
