Slow cooking is a gentle method of cooking, which helps retain both the flavor and nutrients in the food. It also allows you to use more economical cuts of meat, as once they are cooked they will become tender and succulent. Suitable for more delicate foods such as fish, fruit and vegetables. The low temperature of the slow cooking means that very little sticking occurs and that you don"t need to stir the food as often. Great for cooking stews, curries and ideal for keeping food warmer as a server.
