This report shows you five established, reliable slow cookers, performing as owners expect. Our unbiased recommendations are based on combined owner rating scores, which we also share with you.

This ratings-driven view of the market often highlights unexpected models for sale. It can also steer you away from a 'bestseller' - if the owner ratings reveal poor performance.

The Best Slow Cookers 2019

How does it work?

We begin by building a list of slow cookers with more than 50 ratings at Amazon UK, Argos and John Lewis . This jumps straight to the established products, and the rating scores reveal how they've actually performed, according to numerous owners.

We then remove the slow cookers with less than 4 stars. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion.

We use the same criteria for all our consumer reports: each product must have over 50 reviews and more than 4 stars. After sorting the list by ratings, we compile this Top 5.

Well Rated Finds The Best UK Products

Our Notes on this Market

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.
