Favourite kitchen equipment

My favourite piece of kitchen equipment has to be my slow cooker, it saves electric and saves on all that washing up, just put it on in the morning and the tea will be there waiting for you later.

I have had negative comments about slow cookers before, some say everything tastes the same in a slow cooker. I totally disagree, I rustle up some really delicious meals in ours.

I am using up what's in the cupboards and freezer.

So these are the ingredients I put together today.

Reduced Turkey Steaks (chopped), a tin of spicy bean salad, which is just mixed pulses and sweetcorn in a spicy tomato sauce, some reduced baby plum tomatoes chopped in half, a chopped onion, some chopped green peppers from the freezer, some mixed dried herbs, and seasoning and 800ml of stock.

No need to cook the turkey, just chuck it all in give it a good stir.

Add the stock and then just leave cook away.

I also had some leftover spinach so I popped that in as well.

I don't like wasting anything.

A simple tasty meal served with some bread and butter to mop up the juices.

Lovely grub.

A brilliant piece of kitchen equipment, no faffing about at the end of the day, just so easy, I wouldn't be with out mine.

Are you a slow cooker fan?
What kitchen gadget/equipment couldn't you live without.
