I thinks a lot of people use them for ease of use, pop everything in there (potatoes the lot) in the morning, by the time you have dinner its ready to eat, keep a lot of the flavours in together, my mum used to make the best beef casserole or chicken casserole in a slow cooker, what you dont eat, freeze and reheat, :thumbsup:

Makes the meat fall apart,hmmmmm, delicious, its only cooked at a really low heat so the meat doesnt get tough,

When i was in Australia last year i had the best ever steak, it was from a place called the "Hog's Breath Cafe" chain of restaurants, they slow cook there beef for 18hrs!!! and it had to be the best i have ever tasted, it was almost weird, literally like slicing a block of butter

Here a link (just incase you think im pulling your leg)

:thumbsup:, you wont regret it, im not sure about this particular model but most come with a small recipe book to start you off with,

Great offer, just reserved one.

Hi

I am a MP. I shall buy one of these with my expense allocation for my second home. I bet my servant will find it jolly useful, give him more time to clean the pool.

I also need to buy a ride on lawn mower, garden furniture for both houses, the bathroom on the smaller 7 bedroom house could do with a make over (as I intend to sell it making a huge profit) and the kitchen in my main residence is now 18months old and looing a bit dated. Of course, I can claim all this back and cash in further if I use quidco! Who needs discout codes.

Its a tough job, but some one has to do it. Keep paying your taxes, it is appreciated!:thumbsup:

Let's be honest, if you really were an MP on expenses, you wouldn't be on HUKD.

MPs don't appear to know how much things reasonably cost (except when working out benefits and they think that beans still cost 3p a tin)

I bought this one last year. It was pretty much £10 all the time. I think they put the price up.

thanks for this. I think this is the cheapest one so far. I will go to Wilkinson this weekend and pick one up. :thumbsup:

I have an Anthony Worrel Thompson one (very large though), I don't use it that much but a whole chicken is awesome done in it. I did one last week, a Tesco large chicken, quarter 2 lemons, 1 pint of chicken stock, bung it all in on high for 6 hours and walla, the juiciest chicken you've ever tasted! If your working unlike me you could put it in before you go to work on low and it'll be ready when you get home (assuming you start at 9am and home by 6pm lol). You can also make chicken soup with the carcass and bits of meat that fall off when you attempt to lift the chicken out, a tin of Cambells chicken soup, some veg if required, seasoning, cook for about 3 hours on auto and walla, another meal from 1 chicken.

Chilli con carni is great in it too, fry your onion and mince as usual, then bung it in slow cooker with ya other ingrediants on high for around 5 hours or low for 8-9.

Brisket is also nice as are lamb shanks, both on low for around 7-8 hours, the meat falls off the bone just like the chicken.

Rice pudding is tops too, I think it;s something like 4oz rice, 2 pints milk, 1oz butter and 2oz sugar, something like that, cook for 3 hours on high and the result is lovely creamyness

Right culled a recipe from the net and the first is in progress now. Lovely smell but can't see anything happening … fingers crossed!

BTW feedback on the cooker: oval and quite nicely made but the glass lid is very thin, hope it lasts.

The glass should be tempered so should be strong enough.

slow cooked meat prevent cancer causing proteins occurring in your food

Just order one from winchester store, thanks for adding it to HUKD. We have been using a poxy 1.5l one that the missus mum gave us.... its great but won't fit everything in! lol

For a tenner worth every penny

cheers

Great find!

I have never had one. I have some Nectar Points to spend as well, so should get it for around £7.50... Cant go wrong! :thumbsup:

(assuming you start at 9am and home by 6pm lol).



Just a thought, lets just say I put it on before I go to work and it would be ready for about 6. Would it make any difference if I didnt get home until 7? I supposed being a slow cooker it would also be a lot lower at over cooking too?

Also might be a silly question but is there any kind of fire hazard leaving one on in the house all day when no-one is there?

Good find, got mine yesterday.

Had a small slow cooker a number of years ago and always enjoyed using it. They are particularly good with 'tough' cheaper joints, which come out nice and tender.

I'm new to this but from all I've read and my one time use then no it wouldn't matter if you were back a couple of hours late as it cooks so slowly its not going to burn any time soon. There must be limits to that but as liquid is retained within the cooker I think its fairly unlikely to be a problem.

As to fire hazard no more than leaving bubs switched on, this is less than two 100W bulbs if I recall correctly.

Im convinced. Reserved one to pick up tomorrow!

My argos only had two in stock... just got it home and i'm really impressed with the quality.

Already got a small joint of beef roasting with onions and red wine... happy days!

The timing for this couldn't have been better, I've used a slow cooker for a few years now, as it's a very convenient and economical way of making tasty meals.However, the one I had, was purchased for me, and was really, way to big, 6.5 ltre, but I couldn't justify replacing it, as it worked great, or it did until a couple of weeks ago.So, the last few days I've been looking for a good replacement, and was browsing the deals on here when I found this, which was just what I wanted in terms of size, looks and price!, so I whizzed to Aylesbury on Saturday, and managed to get the last one!.I can tell you, the quality of it, is very good, it's well made, and it looks great as well (IMO), and is compact enough to be left on the worktop, encouraging greater use (we all know what happens to kitchen gadgets we store in the cupboard, yeah, they stay there!).I've got a Chilli Con Carne cooking in it now, which'll be ready for when my wife gets home.

These are tough times, and so If you've never used a slow cooker before, then now is a really good time to start using one, especially when you can get one as good as this, for a tenner, about the price of a takeaway.As others have said already, you won't believe how tender and tasty, a cheap, tough cut of meat can be, when it's been done in a slow cooker, and of course it's also economical in terms of electricity usage, using about 1.4kwh to cook a meal.It's also a great time saver, you can just put everything in, before you leave for work, then switch it on low, and when you come home, instead of reaching for a ready meal to slam in the microwave, you can have a really nice tasting meal (not that all ready meals are bad), and don't think you're stuck with doing casseroles, although I do love beef casserole with dumplings, what about pasta sauces, curry, or as I'm doing Chilli, and then of course what about a rice pudding, hmm lovely!.

Sorry, getting carried away here, please forgive me, it's my 1st post!

Anyway, many thanks to the poster, for finding such a great deal, it really is worth every penny! :thumbsup:

The 3.5l seems to make a huge amount of food for a small family and all in one go. Have a stroganoff in there at the moment and the smell is divine. Hope it tastes OK!

Anyway in case its of use there are a few recipes at slowcookerrecipes.org.uk/ which I got from clondikemike and slowcookerclub.com/ but you'll find loads around unless you more experienced users want to share yours (hint )?
