How much does it cost to run a slow cooker?
The best slow cookers are energy efficient and cheap to run. To work out the energy cost of any appliance, you need to know the wattage, that 1000W is a Kilowatt (kW), and that the cost of a kW per hour is around 34p.
The Morphy Richards slow cooker’s product details show that it has a wattage of 163 watts. 163 Watts converted into Kilowatts is: 163 divided by 1,000, which is 0.163kW.
So to run this slow cooker for one hour, the calculation is: 0.163 x 0.34 = 0.05, which means running it for eight hours would cost you 44p (5p x 8 hours).
