I'm a little disappointed with this book. Having recently purchased a slow cooker I bought this based on the other reviews, and thought I was buying a book to help me cook tasty meals which would be ready when I got home from work. However, it seems to contain more "one pot" cooking recipes than ones for slow cookers.
They are not set out into recipes for slow cookers/one pot etc, and there are no pictures. Some of the slow cooker recipes need you to transfer between slow cooker and the hob and even the foreword mentions how fantastic the slow cooker is for making chutneys and preserves, yet most of the recipes at the back need to be done in a preserving pan.
If I was home all day or wanted inspiration for weekend cooking, there are some great recipes I'd try in here. Sadly not, and I wish I'd read a review like mine before buying this book, because I would have kept looking for one specifically for the slow cooker!
