How does this compare with the Argos Cookworks one? Does anyone know?

Hot hot hot lol
Can't go wrong with this price IMHO.

I got the small version of this from Aldi (Feeds upto 4 people) a few weeks back, it has been a great buy.

I reckon it's the same one, for that same price. I've got the previous cookworks one which I think is the same gubbins under a different shell and it's good. If it's the same as the one I've got then I think the temperature is too high on the low setting if you're out all day so any meat might be tougher than you'd expect. So use the warm setting instead, just don't tell the wife.

EXTRA INFO FOR LOVELY GEEKS: Fancy your arm at sous vide but don't want to spend the cash on a temperature control system... I'm a scientist, I use digital thermometers and plot graphs and haven't got a clue what my girlfriend says when she say anything about making things clean or emotionals. I smile and say I also got a dimmer plug from Aldi and worked out for a given mass of water and a cheapy 3 quid digital thermometer you can have a constant temperature and just mark out out on the dimmer plug with a Staedler Stick. Girlfriend say "STFU with your mouth nonsense and give me them lovely meats."

This is actually true but presented in its own special way.

Was that 4.5L? I'm going for this, because of the 6.5L capacity and hope it should be big enough to do for 6. It certainly seems so on the faced of it. Should have had one of these years ago.

Just like the King James Bible.

One thing to note is that they didn't have slow cookers in those days, so things were harder. I bet if they did they wouldn't have bothered writing it.

I've got that. Works well. Don't, however, try to heat the stuff up in the first place by putting the ceramic inner on the hob. Or if you do, don't pour any cold liquids into it while you're doing so. Makes one hell of a mess ... on my second one now, for perhaps obvious reasons.

Tip: seal and brown meat in a frying pan before putting it in the slow cooker, it takes much better.

We have a big one like this for 6 of us and it's a great size....it does get filled to the top though as Mr bunny eats for 3!
We make dumplings and put on the top of the stew for the last 1 1/2 hours of cooking time too...nom nom nom

That's the one, it comfortably does 4 people I would say so you shouldn't have any issues cooking for 6 people in this one.

I'm the same as you, I wish I got one of these years ago as the food out of it is great. I also got a cookery book from Amazon amazon.co.uk/Ham…97/ which has some great recipes in it and worth £3.15.

Thanks. Sounds like this will do the job nicely.

Thanks for responding. I'll be in the queue on Thursday, probably before 08.30, just to make sure I'm in front of the OAPs and anyone else intent on stopping me getting one. X)

Good price,needed a new slow cooker a couple of weeks ago and ended up going for the morphs Richards 8 in 1 thing!
Wished I had just got this!

I agree. I get the impression their lawyers have told them to allow no possibility of someone suing them for food poisoning so err on the side of higher temperatures. It's not supposed to boil.

I got no manual with my crofton large slow cooker I have it with awhile but only moved into my house is there any chance you could send me on a manual please as I don't know how to use it thanks

I tried to cook lamb shank in the large slow cooker and after 5hours on a high the carrots were as hard as when they went in!!!Meat wasn't done either...

I bought my slow cooker 1year ago and l only opened it 2weeks ago. After cooking in it for 2times the oval ceramic dish bottom just came off whilst l was cleaning so l was looking to just buy the inside because the outside dish is working properly

Don't Aldi specials have 3 year guarantees?
