This came in the estimated time, so happy with the service.
I have thought about having a slow cooker over the years but been put off because you could not brown the meat in the dish provided and as it is supposed to be a time saver cooking meat separately before hand and dirtying another pan made no sense to me. Now someone has thought the same and made a slow cooker with a pan/dish you can put on a hob and brown the meat in first........ Great!
I am very happy with the slow cooker because of this added function and it does mean you can put on your lunch/supper and forget about it, get on with your busy life and return home to a delicious home cooked meal, no probs!
I have cooked a stew and a spag Bol sauce so far, both of these need slow cooking to get the best of the flavours mixing and usually mean I have to be around to keep an eye on then cooking on the hob, not any more! Went out for the afternoon and came back to beautifully cooked meals!
It is easy to use and the heat adjustment knob ( 3 settings, loe, med, high), works well regulating the temp. Reading the leaflet gives you a feeling for the cooking times and a few recipe suggestions, which is helpful in the beginning. Although, using it is really self explanatory. Do read the leaflet though as it also tells you what not to cook in it!
