Market Insight

This is our second year of looking at the UK slow cooker market.

It remains a very busy sector, with high sales.

The main manufacturers in this market are Morphy Richards, Crockpot, Andrew James, Von Chef and Russell Hobbs.

This is a very difficult market for the consumer to navigate. This is due to the variations in features that are not obvious on first glance. Colour variations, size variations, vague product numbers and materials used, mean it is quite tricky to compare slow cookers.

Overall, the rating scores are very good – many scoring 4.6 out of 5.

It is a sector that is continuing to innovate: there’s a rise in digital and programmable slow cookers for sale.

Some things to consider when looking for a new slow cooker: size in litres, timers, sear functions and keep warm features.
