Investing in a slow cooker is probably one of the best things you can do when summer ends and all you can think about is soups, stews and one-pot cooking. The next best thing you can do is pick up a slow cooker recipe book to inspire you along the way.

No more slaving over a hot oven or hob when you've finished work and left wondering what to make for dinner, a slow cooker can completely revolutionise the way you cook and give you more time to do the things you want to be doing.

It's not just dinner that you can use a slow cooker, depending on the type of appliance you buy you could set the timer, walk into your kitchen in the morning and be met with a pot of already warm breakfast of porridge or the comforting smell of a stew when you log off at the end of the day. A slow cooker doesn’t have to set you back a fortune either – some appliances start at around £20, which is a small price to pay for your own personal batch cooker.

Once you’ve got the best slow cooker you can buy, there are endless dishes you can make and to help keep the dinner menu in autumn and winter exciting, we’ve rounded up 10 of the best slow cooker recipe books for you to dig into.
