Morphy Richards Easy Time Slow Cooker

10 of the best slow cookers for delicious faff-free meals

Best simple slow cooker with timer

Star rating: 5/5

  • Pros: hob-safe cooking pot, auto-keep warm setting, easy to use controls, clear countdown timer, non-stick pot, lid forms a good seal
  • Cons: pot not suitable for induction

Simple, manual slow cookers are great for the job at hand, but often the only thing missing to elevate them (without overcomplicating things) is a timer. The Easy Time slow cooker ticks that box. It comes with three settings: high, medium and low, and has an automatic timer that runs for up to 12 hours in one-hour increments. We all know that life can throw us curveballs, so if you’re not able to get home before the timer is up, the Easy Time slow cooker will keep your food at the optimum temperature for two hours. A basic slow cooker, with just a little bit extra.

10 of the best slow cookers for delicious faff-free meals

Best slow cooker for low and slow cooking

Star rating: 5/5

  • Pros: stylised 1950s design, large size, effective cooking
  • Cons: impractical cream-coloured dish, cheap-feel lid handle

If you want to slow cook a whole extra-large chicken overnight to feed a family of six or batch cook a stew for storing in the freezer, this gadget is a great choice. It’s incredibly gentle but effective in its cooking, producing meat that simply falls apart with zero burning after a full eight-hour test. The light colour of its dish is a bit impractical and may stain over time. The 1950s design also won’t be to everyone’s taste, but those that like it have a choice of over 10 colours.
