We put slow cookers and multi-cookers through their paces.
The faster your life, the better a slow cooker looks.
Slow cookers are useful for busy people: you fill the bowl with ingredients, switch it on and leave it to do its thing. We’ve tested a range of models, including some multi-cookers which can also pressure cook.
Sous-vide cooking involves sealing food in a vacuum-packed bag and cooking this in a water bath at a precise temperature. We tested the Sunbeam Duo Sous Vide to see how well it cooked pork chops, chicken breast, salmon, and beetroot.
