1. Slow cookers make cooking ridiculously easy. All you have to do is pop in the ingredients, put the lid on and select the temperature – it’s as simple as that!

2. You don’t have to stir or watch the pot. Just set the slow cooker in the morning and a delicious dinner will be ready when you get home.

3. Slow cooking at a low temperature breaks down the proteins in meat, making it really tender and succulent. Even the cheapest cuts of meat will melt in your mouth.

4. Slow cooking is healthy cooking. The lid contains all the cooking juices and condensation and keeps the nutrients and flavours in your food.

4 reasons why you need a cast iron dutch oven

Dutch Oven Cooking Guide at The Good Guys

1. Using a cast iron dutch oven to slow cook meals in the oven heats the whole dish (including the lid) which makes meat more caramelised and creates crispier skin than a traditional slow cooker.

2. You can use a cast iron dutch oven to make most slow cooker recipes. Just add more liquid than the recipe calls for, checking the pot regularly to make sure your slow cooked creation isn’t getting too dry.

3. Cast iron dutch ovens are perfect for searing and braising meats on the stove, baking bread, making soup and one-pot wonders you can take straight to the table.

4. A cast iron dutch oven with an enamel coating won’t react to acidic foods like tomatoes and is really easy to clean. Go for a heavy pot with a tight-fitting lid, top knob and good handles that make it easy to move while wearing oven mitts.

4. Most slow cookers recipes can be adapted and made in a casserole dish on the stove. Just add more liquid than the amount that’s in the recipe and check whether you need to add a bit more during simmering so it stays moist and doesn’t dry out.
