Slow cookers are a popular buy around this time of year, so here are a couple of slow cooking bargains - for last minute kitchen-themed Christmas gifts, or as an extra cooking gadget for seasonal chefs.

Three quarters of Which? members who own a slow cooker recommend them because they can continue cooking while you're not there and make tasty meals from cheaper cuts of meat. 

It's not just casseroles and stews that are suitable for slow cooking either - you can even make a batch of mulled wine in a slow cooker.
