ASDA slow cookers reduced to £9

Miss Thrifty5 September 12, 2011

asda slow cooker As has been previously documented, I love my slow cooker: it saves time, saves on washing up, reduces food waste and saves oodles of cash.

This evening I was mooching around ASDA (looking at their rollbacked rolledback discounted breast pumps, actually – but don’t worry, I shall spare you the details) when I saw that store-brand slow cookers have been reduced from £15.17 to just £9.

If you don’t have a slow cooker and are tempted to invest in one, now is the perfect time: it’s cold and getting colder, and those winter soups, chowders and stews will soon be back on the menu. Also, £9 is a steal: that ASDA slow cooker (pictured) is a family-sized model, with a 3.5 litre capacity, and looks to be pretty sturdy. It’s brushed steel on the outside, ceramic on the inside and has high and low settings.

This model is currently out of stock on the ASDA website, but piled high in the stores. Let me know if you get one and I’ll write up some more slow cooker recipes. 🙂

We have had a slow cooker for years. The value is having your food cooked while you are at work. It is a real time saver for the dual income family.

At a county show over the weekend I saw a slow cooker (from a distance) that did not require electricity. I think it had a thermal jacket that you filled with boiling water.

Anybody know more about this?

@Maria – yes it is very timely, with winter coming on fast. I’ll be publishing some of my favourite recipes here… Hope you like fish dishes!

@Debt Advice UK – no, but it sounds intriguing!

@krantcents – I agree! Initially I was nervous about leaving it on all day in an empty house, as our slow cooker dates from the 1970s and I had visions of explosions/meltdown. Fortunately, all seems to be fine…
