It can be hard to find the time to prepare a delicious, home-cooked meal but it's easily done with a slow cooker. They're so versatile, delivering all kinds of mouth-watering dishes from casseroles to curries, soups to stews and give you the option to prepare a meal in the morning, head out for the day, and return to it in the evening when its ready to serve. With a slow cooker it's less likely you'll overcook your food making it perfect for amateur cooks and seasoned chefs alike. While it benefits those cooking on a budget as the slow and even cooking tenderises the cheapest cuts of meat, allowing the flavours to develop more fully. And with just the one piece of kitchen equipment providing a whole meal, they're economical on kitchen space and washing up afterwards.
The Breville VTP036 is made from brushed stainless steel making it a smart addition to your kitchen and with a capacity of 4.8 litres (l) is great for couples and small families. It has three cooking functions helping you choose the best cooking method for your needs. Select the high function to cook your food within about four hours or the low setting for eight hours between preparation and serving. Alternatively, opt for the auto cook setting which will start on high for an hour or so and then automatically reduce the heat to low. Keep an eye on your food's progress with the tempered glass lid and when ready serve, there's no fear of burning your hands with the cool-touch handles. Serve it at the table without losing the heat thanks to the removable ceramic bowl making it a simple and easy journey from cooker to plate.

This is a very efficient, good looking electric casserole at a very good price. But it is NOT a slow cooker.
A slow cooker needs to cook above 68 degrees C to kill the bacteria, but not much above 68 degrees to cook really slowly on the low setting - say about 75 degrees. Otherwise, if you put the food in the cooker in the morning and go out to work, when you get home in the evening it will be very overcooked. This is precisely what happened to me with the Breville, so I called the manufacturers to see if there was perhaps a fault with mine. They could not even tell me what was the target temperature for the low setting; but when I measured it, it was well over 100 degrees. No wonder the food was overcooked!
I cook food overnight and all day and it has never burnt any of my food.
I would also recomend Carolyn Humphries slow cooker bookS slow cooking curries & spice/slow cooking around the mediterranean.
Friends now call me the slow cooker queen, due to them all being given a meal from my slow cooker.
I would definatley recommend this slow cooker.
I got this because my last slow cooker, which I had for about 9 years, had finally died on me. So far I've used it 5 or 6 times for all sorts of meals, all with meat, and the results have been just as good as my old slow cooker, if not better.
It definitely does cook `slow enough' and I've not had any problems with it `hard-boiling' or anything like that.
So I would definitely recommend this slow cooker - it's simple and effective, which is exactly what you should want from a slow cooker.
It may be all right for vegetarians, but I am really annoyed as I couldn't return it once it had been used, and I now can't afford to buy another one. Avoid this product!
