WHAT IS IT?
A 3.5 litre slow cooker finished in cobalt blue.
WHAT FEATURES DOES IT HAVE?
The slow cooker holds 3.5 litres in volume, it has three heat settings and a power indicator light. The ceramic pot lifts out for serving and cleaning, it's not recommended that you soak the pot but the surface is shiny enough that any food or sauce will wash off in hot water without you needing to scrub it.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
It's a very good slow cooker, food cooks through evenly and doesn't stick to the pot during either cooking or cooling periods. The knob you use to choose the heat setting locks into place with a small clunk so you know you have it set correctly. I use mine by using the HIGH setting for an hour then turning it down to MEDIUM or LOW depending on how quickly I want the food cooked, usually I put our meal on in the morning and set the slow cooker to LOW so that it will be ready for six when my husband comes in from work. It's very useful for me as I run my own beautician business and am out myself for most of the day visiting clients, I like that I can prepare the food while I'm making my children's breakfast and packed lunch and know that we're all going to come home to a hot fresh meal.
The blue outer base unit gets streaky and attracts dust in the kitchen so I have to give it a wipe down each day, I can never get it to look as shiny as it did when it was new! The power lead is quite short so you need to make sure you've got space for it very near to a plug, the lead is black so is easy to keep clean with a wipe after each use.
The lid is much better than on my old slow cooker as it doesn't fill up with condensation so I can see how the food is doing without removing the lid. It fits the edge of the ceramic pot perfectly so that no heat escapes the seal.
The Morphy Richards Accents Slow Cooker costs £33 and is also available in red, black or green. I liked the red one to start with but that was out of stock when I went to buy my slow cooker so I chose the blue instead, now I'm glad I did and have since then bought the kettle and toaster from the same blue Accents range.
