Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: VonShef Automatic Electric Slow Cooker 6.5L Litres Stainless Steel - Removable Oval Oven to Table Dish with Toughened Glass Lid
I order lots of stuff on Amazon and had never left a review so far. That's telling you how much I am happy with this product!
I spent a fair amount of time browsing the internet before bying the Shef. Loads of people were complaining that even the biggest brands out there were actually not doing the job because the food was brought to the boil and/or burning even on the lowest setting.
I can guarantee you that this one does not. I have cooked beautiful meals that always came out perfectly, the latest one being a melt- in-the-mouth, perfectly cooked leg of lamb . No knife needed to carve it, only a spoon.Very simple recipe :lots of garlic and rosemary, salt pepper and that's it. NO LIQUID at all, on low for about 8 hours et voila! After the diner my friends asked for the link to order one for themselves.
As for the size, i was a bit concerned it would be too big for us ( a couple) but I actually am glad I did get the 6.5l so I can cook larger pieces like a whole chicken or (the famous leg of lamb ;) with no problem and we have leftovers for the next day. And it works just as well for smaller portions. And if you like entertaining, it is a must of course.
The only thing is there is now timer but it coooks so slow that I am not worried to leave it and go out, it never burns.
If you look for a great slow cooker, do not look further, this is it.
EDIT : what happened with the price ? I got if at 18£, my friend at 28£ and now it's 99£ !! Still worth it though, even if I'm glad I got it earlier.

Does the auto function work? One reviewer here says the machine turns off rather than switching to low?
