If you're a fan of a one-pot wonder dinner, then get ready to make a dash to the shops to pick up this Aldi slow cooker.
The characterful new gadget is just £14.99, available to pre-order now, in stores from this Sunday 4th Oct.
Slow cookers are ideal for busy adults, looking to throw a handful of ingredients into a pot and come home in the evening to a delicious stew or bolognese.
The Aldi slow cooker holds 3.5 litres, so is more than sufficient for whipping up a hearty family tea, with leftovers for the following day.
The supermarket's Ambiano slow cooker doubles as a chalkboard too. Perfect to jot down dinnertime instructions and notes.
Aldi slow cooker
The slow cooker, made by Ambiano is coated in a matt black chalkboard, that you can scribble on with one of the three pieces of chalk that come with the Aldi slow cooker.
Jot down a note about when the slow cooker went on, or a message to your other half or kids about when the chilli should be ready. This is especially handy if you're going to be home late or out for the evening.
We've trawled the internet and the closest version we could find to the Aldi slow cooker, was by Russell Hobs, selling for £18 at Dunelm, around £4 more expensive than Aldi.

Aldi's slow cooker features a dishwasher safe pot and lid, so no one can grumble about whose turn it is to do the washing up. It boasts an adjustable control switch allowing you to switch the cooker between warm, low and high.
Plus the autumnal cooking must-have offers a three-year guarantee. That should see you through plenty of Sunday stews, Wednesday bolognese and a couple of special occasion risottos.
Just imagine, arriving home to the gorgeous smell of homemade stew, with meat that falls apart in your mouth when you bite into it. We think it might be worth buying one of these for that smell alone, especially during the dark winter nights.
Once they're gone, they're gone.
