My red Crock-Pot slow cooker not only looks fabulous but is the perfect way to make and serve a Valentine's Day meal for a loved one. Red is one of the hot colours for kitchen kit and brights add a welcome splash of colour. A meal can be cooked in one pot and after a few hours you have a delicious meal. Starters, mains or dessert can be cooked without too much fuss.

Slow Cooker Steamed Chocolate Pudding
Well greased basins, base lined with a circle of baking paper - chocolate batter made....


Basins securely covered with a square of pleated non-stick foil (this makes life easier). Pour boiling water into the pot to come half way up the basins.  Place the lid on top, and cook at high heat setting for approximately 2 hours, check the water level after an hour.
Puddings are well risen and ready for turning out.
The slow cooker is supplied with three very useful serving utensils.
Pros:
The slow cooker has two heat settings high and low.
There is a keep warm function.
3.5 Litre capacity which is ample for 2-3 people.
Large side handles make it very easy to lift.
The removable stoneware cooking pot and lid are dishwasher safe.
The stoneware cooking pot is oven safe.
Stylish slow cooker and eye catching design.
Other colours available.

Cons:
The glass lid cannot be used in the oven.
The lid is loose fitting.
The Owner's Guide includes only a few recipes.

However, there are some fabulous slow cooker recipes to choose from on the Crock-Pot website.

The Crock-Pot has a RRP £34.99 and is available to buy from all good retailers.

Thank you Crock-Pot for my fabulous slow cooker.
