Morphy Richards 48784 Flavour Savour 4.5l Digital Slow Cooker
Flavour Savour is a slow cooker with a variety of cooking functions allowing you to seal, fast stew and slow cook from start to finish in one cooking pot. With a capacity of 4.5l serving up to six people, the Flavour Savour is perfect for family meal times all year around.
Sear, Stew and Slow Cook Settings
Morphy Richards understand the hectic lifestyles people lead and the struggle to find time to create healthy nutritious homemade meals from scratch. The Flavour Savour is one of the most efficient time-saving slow cookers on the market. Featuring a large capacity cooking pot and pre-programmed base, you can quickly seal chicken, beef or pork without the need to use a separate pan. Then you simply add vegetables and stock to the same pot, retaining the juices and flavours, before either stewing or slow cooking--all on the same base. You can even use the pot directly on the hob of your cooker. The Fast Stew setting allows you to create a tasty stew in just 90 minutes that will taste like it’s been on the stove all day.
The Slow Cook setting allows you to cook for up to ten hours, tenderizing even the toughest cuts of meat and creating delicious curries, chillis and stews. When you return home your meal will be ready and waiting to be served.
The easy-to-use digital display allows you to select your desired program and cooking time so your meal is ready at the exact time you require.
The countdown timer and transparent toughened glass lid mean you can easily monitor the progress of your cooking without lifting the lid and releasing the built up temperature.
Don’t worry if you get delayed and aren’t home at the time you expected; a built-in keep-warm function on Flavour Savour means that once your meal is cooked it will automatically be kept warm for up to 2 hours.
The Flavour Savour’s design means the base, cord and plug all fit within the cooking pot, allowing for easy storage in even the most compact of kitchens.
Other features of the Flavour Savour slow cooker include cool-touch handles, non-slip feet and dishwasher-safe parts, so not only is cooking family meals easy and convenient, so is cleaning up afterwards.

The only odd thing is that if you decide to turn off the slow cooker before the time is up, there is no way to do this (that I've discovered) except to unplug the unit. I actually would have preferred a dial control, but it's my only quibble. [Edited to say that I was wrong about this; you can reset the timer and if you don't press to accept, it will eventually turn off.]
I'm quite happy with all my cooking experiments so far, and also love that the pot is removable, looks good in the kitchen, and does not take up a lot of space -- all very important points for me. I haven't had any burning or sticking issues. A great price from Amazon, free shipping, and a very quick delivery made the whole deal even sweeter. I'm very, very pleased with this purchase!
EDITING to add additional comments after having used this extensively for about a month: Though I expected to use this mainly in colder weather, I'm just loving it for summer because we can cook without heating up the kitchen, so we're using it a *lot* and everything has been easy and delicious, as well as cutting down quite a bit on clean-up time. I was nervously preoccupied with finding proper slow cooker recipes at first, but soon began just winging it for whatever I felt like making, and the results are always great. We've now duplicated a number of family favorites with own slow cooker versions, and they are usually better.
The only serious flaw I've found so far is that if you use the "stew" function for something like a soup (so, more liquid), even if you are careful not to add so much broth/water that it boils up near the top of the pan at all (I had the liquid below the rivets of the handles), the steam can condense on the inside of the lid, accumulate at the lip, and drip out over the side. I actually found a bit of a puddle on the floor as the lid had dripped so much that the liquid collected on the counter top and dripped off the edge. Once it's turned down to a slower mode, however, this behavior ceases. I often combine cooking modes, so I'll be experimenting with using less broth during the stew time, and adding it back during the slow-cook period for soupy things. (And the stew function is the quick-cook mode -- 1.5 hours, for example -- so it's probably not something most would normally set and leave. A kitchen cloth on the counter at the point of escape solved my problem while it was happening.)
Despite this problem I'm not removing a star, because for me it's been an excellent and completely worthwhile addition to our small kitchen (and I'm very resistant to accumulating space-stealing limited-use gadgetry!), and I'm still extremely pleased with the on-sale purchase. I had my eye on a different, glass vessel, slow cooker that turned out to be too expensive with delivery costs where I am, and I'm so glad it turned out that way because I really do love this one -- not least because the other didn't have the browning feature that I appreciate so much.
I still have not had any burning/sticking problems, but I haven't yet used it for delicate dishes or desserts -- though I did make a bean soup over a very long period (around 10 hours, overnight) and the bottom layer offered some resistance to the wooden spoon at the end. But it was fine, and the pan was not difficult to clean afterward. In our hard water location I do sometimes notice a bit of unsightly white-ish discoloration on the bottom of the pan after cleaning, but I easily dispatch this by briefly rubbing it with a bit of vinegar and a paper towel, and it gleams like new.
So! Still extremely pleased after a month of pretty heavy use. (Also, I have supper cooking in it as I write this. Smells great!)
EDIT: Just popping in to say that it's been a year and three months, and we still use this all the time (delicious beef stew currently bubbling away this Autumn evening), and still love it. Aside from the electric kettle, it's definitely the small appliance we use most in the kitchen.
This one ticked all the boxes as it has a removeable, dishwashable pot. It can be used on the hob for browning, as well as on the cooker base and has a clear lid with steam hole, so you can see exactly what's going on in there! And it's narrow base makes it take up less space in the kitchen than most slow cookers, as well as looking prettier, in my opinion. I didn't want a plastic-ey steamer looking type thing on the counter!
I ordered the 6.5 L to start with and although I would have loved to keep it, in our teeny weeny London kitchen, it was going to take up too much room so I got the 4.5 L instead.
I LOVE IT! It makes enough for 4, you don't really want to put more than a 1kg joint of meat in, at that stage you should chop it up a bit to make sure it gets covered in whatever sauce/stew you might be cooking it in but it is amazing.
I tend to take the pan off and put it on my gas cooker to brown everything off, then stick it back on the cooker for the slow cooking part. I know you can brown it on the cooker but I like playing with gas heat more.
Everything we have cooked has tasted incredible. The timings on it are perfect and the dial is very simple, I still haven't read the instructions.
We've made curries, soups, stews, briskets and traditional French dishes like Boeuf Bourguignon and Coq au Vin and it all tastes bloody marvellous!
We use DK The Slow Cook Book (the best) and Slow Cooking Curries by Carolyn Humphries amongst others, we've found these to be the best, though the latter doesn't have pictures.
Do give slow cooking a go, whether you use this or not. I wish I'd had one when I first moved out and couldn't cook, they're simple and make wonderful tasting food, that's cheap to make and easy to freeze.
I looked at Wh*ch?, Amazon, A*gos and others reviews before buying this make and model and I'm really glad I did. There are no hidden annoyances like fixed pots, everything is sturdy, useable and effective. I've had it for a year and still going strong.
I hope this can be useful to someone looking into slow cookers :)
