I've only used it twice. I had to put it on the high setting. I really didn't see any difference in the flavour using the slow cooker versus the conventional oven. I'll have to try it a few more times. Also only comes with 5 recipies. Not great. I haven't used the low setting yet. But I'd say I would have to have it on for about 10 hours to get the food cooked. So not happy with this.
