Slow cookers are an amazing tool for busy people who want to eat healthy and save money. With just a few ingredients and a bit of time, you can create whole meals that will last for days. Plus, they’re much healthier than fast food or takeout! So if you’re looking for ways to save time (and money), read on – this article will tell you everything you need to know about slow cookers.

Save time

Slow cookers are ideal for busy people because they can be set and forgotten. You can put the ingredients in the slow cooker before work and come home to a meal ready. No more slaving over a hot stove!

You can even use your slow cooker for other things besides cooking food, such as melting cheese or making dips.

Less Mess

You don’t have to stand over a hot stove and watch your food cook, which means less mess. You can also use less oil and butter in slow cooker recipes, which means less mess. And if you’ve ever cooked with a slow cooker before, you know that there is no need for multiple pots or pans of boiling water–everything goes into one pot!

If you’re worried about making too much food for yourself or others at home and having leftovers sitting around for days on end (a concern I understand all too well), then this is another huge benefit of using a slow cooker: it lets you cook in bulk so that everyone gets their fair share of whatever delicious dish without any leftovers going bad before anyone has eaten them all up.

Easy cleaning

It’s a lot easier to clean up after a slow cooker meal than it is to clean up after one made in a pot or pan. Most slow cookers have removable stoneware that can be tossed in the dishwasher, and some are even microwave safe–which means you can heat them up right in their own container.

It’s nice not having to worry about scrubbing pots and pans when you’re tired from work, don’t feel like cooking at all, or just want something simple for dinner.

Less expensive than take-out or delivery

You can buy in bulk, which not only saves you money but also makes it easy to make a big batch of food and freeze it. This is especially helpful with slow-cooked meats like pulled pork or brisket, which can be stored for up to three months in an airtight container.

You may be able to get away with using cheaper cuts of meat because they’ll cook longer and become tender when cooked low and slow in the crock pot.

Healthy meals, with less clean-up

The best part about a slow cooker is that you don’t need to use any oil or butter to cook your food. That’s right: no need for stir-fry, sautéing and pan-frying! Instead, just throw everything in the pot and let it do its thing.

Slow cookers also make clean-up easy since they’re self-contained units with non-stick interiors that are easy to clean (after all those hours of cooking). And since there are no pots or pans involved in making your meal, there’s no need for scrubbing them either! Plus when it comes time for clean-up after dinner–the worst chore ever–you can take one look at how simple it was (all thanks to your trusty slow cooker) before heading out the door without feeling guilty about leaving behind a mess for someone else on their plate later tonight when they get home from work/school/whatever else has occupied them during their day off.”

Freezer friendly meals

If you’re in the market for a slow cooker, it’s best to choose one with a removable stoneware insert. This makes it easier to transfer food into freezer bags or containers and freeze them so they’re ready when you are–no fussing with thawing time!

Once your meal has been frozen and stored away, simply place the frozen contents back into your slow cooker. Set the temperature on high until everything is thawed (about 4 hours), then reduce heat to low for cooking as usual.

Control the flavours of your food

Slow cookers are great for busy people because they allow you to control the flavours of your food. You can add more spices or remove some if you like, and it’s also possible to use less meat and still get a delicious meal.

You'll start cooking healthier and better quality food

Slow cookers are a great way to make healthy meals on busy weeks. The slow cooking process helps you control the ingredients you use and also allows for more nutrients in your food. You can make your own spice blends, use less meat and add more vegetables, or even make your own healthy meals that are low in fat and sodium.

Save money by using less meat & buying in bulk!

Slow cookers are a great way to make healthy meals on busy weeks. It’s easy to use and clean, and you can buy a whole chicken for about £6 that will feed you for days! With just a few small ingredients added, you have several meals made without much effort or cost!

That’s why I think slow cookers are worth it: they save money by using less meat & buying in bulk! 

Save money and eat healthy

Slow cookers are easy to use, and they’re great for busy people. If you’re looking for ways to save money and eat healthy but don’t have much time to cook during the week, a slow cooker is an amazing tool!

Here are some tips on how to use your slow cooker:

  • Prep all of your ingredients before starting. The more organized and prepared you are when you start cooking, the smoother everything will go. Make sure that all ingredients are chopped up into easily-handled pieces so that nothing burns or sticks on the bottom of your pot while cooking in there for hours at low temperatures (especially meat). The last thing anyone wants is burnt meat!

  • Put everything into the pot according to how long each ingredient needs until it’s done being cooked properly–you don’t want some things overcooked while others remain raw because they were added later than other ingredients needed less time under heat.”


Slow cookers are a wonderful way to prepare healthy meals for your family. They are easy to use and can save you time and money by allowing you to prepare meals in bulk at home instead of eating out or ordering takeout all the time. If you’re looking for a new kitchen appliance that will help make your life easier, consider investing in one today!
