When you are working and a parent, it can be extremely challenging to balance everything that you need to do. This is where the use of a slow cooker can come in extremely handy. As long as you are someone who is able to work from home, or have someone in your home, this tool will help you.

With your slow cooker, all you need to do is take a short amount of time in the morning to prepare your dish. This involves cutting meat, making your sauce, and cutting and vegetables. All of these items can then be thrown into your slow cooker to be cooked slowly throughout the day. This works like a charm for those who forget about cooking meals but want to eat homecooked food. It is okay to leave this running whilst you pop out for a few minutes on the school run, but should not be left unattended for long periods of time.
