    I can't review it as I don't have this particular slow cooker.

    But, my favourite 'recipe' is as follows:

    Score a joint of unsmoked gammon every centimetre or inch, forming diamonds, and stud it with cloves at each 'cross'
    Slow-cook the gammon in an inch of water, on low, for four hours, turning it every hour
    After four hours, take the gammon out and empty the water.
    Spoon a full jar of marmalade into the slow cooker and put the gammon back in
    Cook on low for a further two hours, turning after one hour
    Eat straight away or leave to cool (or both). If leaving to cool, generously spoon over the melted marmalade and store in the fridge

    The gammon will do sandwiches for several days and the combination of the marmalade and cloves gives it a festive and mildly sweet taste.

    YUM. Just make up your own recipes. Throw whatever you like in there. Enjoy!

    slow cooked fajitas, dice chichen and throw it in a food bag with all the dry rub, cut your onions , peppers and whatever else you want in it, then throw it all in the slow cooker for 3 and a half hours, tasty as hell....

    Slow cookers are great,just throw in what you like but unless its a joint try to keep meat lean.

    Cook your gamon in cola

    Got myself a slowcooker few years back but just cant get along with it. The food tastes fine but all this rubbish about spendin time wi the kids and it constantly hoovering when im watchin the footy really grates me

    I do my gammon with just brown sugar. No other ingredients or liquid comes out amazing.
