If you don't put enough ingredients it will burn around the edges, what i do is put plenty of stuff in (it needs to be 3 quarters full) and then end up freezing the extra portions. There's 4 of us and we do get an extra 4 portions. If I'm cooking less food i use my 3.5 litre slow cooker. ;-) I do bulk it up with extra potatoes to fill it up though. Hope this helps x
Do the instructions confirm dishwasher safe bowl and lid? Another similar model was advertised as dishwasher safe but was not. 4 Jan 2014
Yes instructions confirm "The Glass Lid and Cooking Pot are dishwasher safe." In fact the non stick pot is SO non-stick that it only take a minute to hand wash. Lid also v easy to clean. Both quite large for the dishwasher and lid possibly a bit fragile despite instructions. Because of the nature of the slow cooker, food does not get burnt on at all, it just slides off. Very pleased with my cooker.
If I make soup in mine is it ok to use a hand blender to make the soup smooth or will it harm the inside coating ? 28 Dec 2014
Well I haven't tried that yet but it seems pretty tough !! I've used a scouring pad on mine with no problems !! Hope this helps !!
One review has said this isn't suitable for use with a halogen hob. Is this correct please? 18 Nov 2014
Yes unfortunately this is correct !! I wasn't aware of this when I bought mine and I have a halogen hob !! However I am still pleased with this slow cooker as it cooks quite quickly and the metal inner container is easier to lift n handle! Hope this answers your question !!
Don't think so but there isn't a lot to go wrong. It's absolutely brilliant and so much lighter than the traditional ceramic ones. Very versatile too, using it on the stove is a huge advantage. Go for it!
After cooking the meal for the set time, will the food keep warm until is served or I get back from work at the end of the day? 24 Feb 2014
You don't actually 'set' the cooking time it will just continue to cook until you switch it off. However, by adjusting the level of heat you can adapt the cooking time to your particular needs e.g. if a particular recipe advises cooking on high for 4-5 hours and you are going to be out all day you can set on a lower heat setting. After switching the machine off, it does stay hot for a long time. Hope this helps
