Aldi is selling a £20 chalkboard slow cooker – and it's £5 cheaper than Russell Hobbs

The budget supermarket's electric hot pot costs £19.95 – while the Russell Hobbs device is £24.96 at Asda and Amazon.

The two remarkably similar-looking gadgets have the same 3.5-litre capacity – but Aldi's version is much more powerful.

While Russell Hobbs' version has 1,200 watts of power, Aldi's appliance has 1,900 – about the same as the most powerful hairdryers.

Both have three heat settings: high, low, and warm, and both have the same matte black coating for you to write on.

They both have glass lids so you can see what you're cooking and come with chalk – though Aldi is more generous and supplies three instead of two pieces.

Russell Hobbs' pot may be easier to clean though as it's dishwasher safe, while Aldi just states that its pot is removable for "easy cleaning".

Aldi's Chalkboard Slow Cooker goes on sale from Sunday, October 14.

But you'll have to be quick if you want one as it's a Specialbuy, which means it will only be available while stocks last.

Aldi has also just launched a new home security range, which includes a £23 electronic safe.

Experts are also predicting that the budget supermarket is about to launch an online delivery service in the UK.
