There are a variety of ways to cook a one pot meal. The best ways to cook your one pot dinner however is in the oven, on the hob or in a slow cooker. If you opt for the hob, the bigger the pan the better. This means you can guarantee that all of your ingredients are going to fit in. Plus you won't have to cook them in separate pans - leading to more dreaded washing up.
If you're choosing to cook your one pot recipe in the oven, a deep high sided tray is usually the best option. The high sides will make sure there are no overflow or spillages whilst your dish is being cooked.
And last but not least, the slow cooker. The best slow cookers are a great option if you'd like to be getting on with other things whilst your dinner cooks in the background. You put all your ingredients in, follow the instructions on the machine, and ta-dah, dinner is served.
