Slow cooking is one of the healthiest and most cost effective methods of cooking a meal for the whole family, and with the Morphy Richards 3. 5L Sear and Stew Slow Cooker in brushed silver you will produce superb, and very delicious results. This cooker has a hob-proof cooking pot, meaning you can sear and slow cook from start to finish in one cooking pot. You can easily sear some chicken, beef or pork within the hob-proof cooking pot, and then add vegetables and stock into the same pot. The juices and flavours from the meat combine with the rest of the ingredients creating a richer, fuller taste.

It's extremely durable and shatterproof, and the transparent toughened glass lid means you can easily monitor your cooking. The easy-to-use dial has three settings - low 6-12 hours, medium 4-10 hours, and high 3-8 hours. The cooker and glass lid are dishwasher safe, and it also comes with cool touch handles and non-slip feet.
