Energy efficient slow cookers and affordable recipes from Crockpot

Crockpot®’s testing has found that electric pressure cookers are in fact almost six times more efficient than cooking in an oven and almost twice as efficient as cooking on a hob. Crockpot® has also revealed that:

An electrical pressure cooker generally uses around 500W to cook an average stew in just 21 minutes, whereas a conventional oven took a whopping 3.25 hours to cook the same meal using around 3000W.


·         With many homes looking for ways to make savings this winter, using a slow cooker is also a more energy efficient cooking method.  In fact, cooking a stew in a slow cooker uses around 1500W vs a conventional oven which would use typically twice that, to cook the same meal.


In time for winter, Crockpot® is pleased to announce an exciting addition to its slow cooker range, the TimeSelect 5.6L Slow Cooker, which makes mealtimes even easier as it can be programmed to cook meals to perfection by your chosen dinner time, with its Schedule Meal function.
