There can’t be many more traditional meals than a healthy stew. One of the easiest and best ways to cook a stew is in a slow cooker. It means you can set the meal up way ahead of time, let it cook through the day and then come home to wonderful soft meat and a truly delicious taste.
But, as with anything kitchen related, slow cookers can be really pricey and not everyone can afford to drop a small fortune on making a stew every now and again. Fortunately, the good folks at Proctor-Silex appear to have you covered now with their 4-quart slow cooker that doesn’t cost the earth.
More Than Stews
It’s also worth noting that while stews are the traditional product of slow cookery, that doesn’t mean that they’re the only thing that you can make in a slow cooker. One of my family favorites is pulled pork and a slow cooker is perfect for making that:
For those who enjoy ribs that just fall of the bone; you can enlist a slow cooker to help out with that too:
How Did Proctor-Silex Fare?
Wow! Just wow. This is an extraordinary feat of engineering at this price point. The slow cooker made everything exactly the way that it should have been. It feels very solid for the price (I was expecting something that would break the first time it was washed) and it looks great too.
The house smells amazing when I leave a stew in it for the majority of the day too. I’m going to say that if you don’t buy this – you must already have a slow cooker. This is the deal of the century for slow cookers.
