The best programmable slow cookers are on the market to make your life even easier. Manual slow cookers require some observation and you have to do a lot of the work for yourself. One of the main types of slow cookers on the market is called the “Set ‘N’ Forget” which is exactly what these programmable models are designed to let you do. Great main meals become a breeze with these slow cookers, allowing you to cook stews, soups, gravies, casseroles, curries and much much more with exceptional ease.
Price of Programmable Slow Cookers
A quick note before I start listing specific models, the price of the best programmable slow cookers is something worth mentioning. Manual models can be bought from an amazing $10-15, but the more high tech models that we plan to look at are going to cost from $40 upwards, and the top of the range even sees us looking at around $250 a piece. You don’t have to outlay that for your cooker though and a $50 model will probably be more than adequate for your needs.
