Basically it consists of a large stainless steel cooking pan with a transparent viewing window. The pan sits on top of a heating element which is controlled by a programmable timer with a LCD display. The stainless steel cooking pan can be used separately on gas, electric or Aga type cookers. I would guess that the heating element can also be used with other pots and pans if required. For storage the cooking base will fit inside the pan and with the lid ontop can take up a minimum of shelf space.
The way this unit works differs from traditional slow cookers in that it can braise and shallow fry food prior to slow cooking. Also, unlike more simple units, it has a sophisticated timer with a digital display to facilitate the cooking of various dishes.
The stainless steel pan lends itself well to frying and the fast transmission of heat but it does mean that food can easily burn and stick to it as the uncoated cooking surface.
We have tried a few meals and it will easily make enough to feed a large family but care needs to be taken when frying or braising to ensure the food does not burn as you would with any sort of pan frying.
The device can cope with more than the usual type of slow cooking recipe and can fry and braise.
The cooking pan can be used on separate stoves and need not be used just with it's own heating unit.
The heating base unit can be used with other pots and pans
Clever design means this large unit can be stored neatly away.Read more ›
So far I have used it mostly for casseroles and soups etc. The fact that meals can be cooked from start to finish in the same pan is a useful feature. The sealing and browning function is a really positive aspect.
Sometimes the lid lifts with the steam when food is simmering and this means the pan can spit a bit but leaving a gap when putting the lid on remedies this minor problem - however in my book it downgrades the rating from 5 to 4 stars.
All in all an easy to use and versatile addition to anyone's kitchen.
If you buy it I am sure you will use it regularly - at least weekly probably, especially when looking for comfort food in the winter - it won't be consigned to the back of a cupboard after a few weeks as happens with so many kitchen gadgets.
Obviously can't return so very disappointed!
The stainless steel pot has a standard thick and thermally diffuse base and works just as well on our induction hob as any other normal pan. We have also used it this way for quicker browning of the contents and bringing up to temperature. If in a hurry to set it going before leaving the house for several hours, then this short cut in initiation time is an advantage.
The pot shape is a bit strange, I would have preferred a wider base (like in the old crock-pots) to allow for browning in the pot on the main hob. However with the narrow base it is easier to brown in a separate sauté pan and transfer the contents, but this doubles the washing-up. The funnel shape seems to encourage the steam to condense on the wide lid and not much escapes through its single small vent. I would also have preferred a polished surface, instead of the brushed that is always showing finger marks.
The lead stows neatly under the base, which when inverted stores snugly in the pot itself. There are even a couple of finger holes in the underside of the base to allow it to be picked out of the pot.Read more ›
This is the first slow cooker I've owned so I was pretty excited to discover the world of tender meat that falls off the bone and flavoursome stews. I wasn't disappointed by my first attempts at spicy chicken and chickpea curries. The process was a lot easier than cooking these recipes in the conventional method - just chop all the ingredients, toss into the pot and relax for the rest of the day till the food was ready. It was a lovely feeling to throw the raw ingredients into the pot before heading out for a day of shopping only to return home to freshly bubbling aromatic food!
It is certainly easy to use - it has 3 functions of browning, stewing and slow cooking. Most slow cooking recipe books seem to recommend browning of meat or vegetables before adding them to the slow cooker - the browning function therefore turns to be most useful and saves having to clean several pots at the end of the day's cooking! I haven't really used the stewing function but it appears to be for any recipes that require very short cooking times (between 1h 30m and 1h 45m). The slow cooking function has 3 levels - low, medium and high ranging from 4 to 10 hours of cooking. The slow cooker also has a keep warm function which can keep food warm for up to two hours at the end of the cooking process - handy for those times you might be stuck in traffic or caught up at work at the end of day!
As yummy as the results were from the slow cooking process, there are some drawbacks to this device.
- The instruction manual recommends removing the lid to stir the food only 3 - 4 times during the cooking process.Read more ›

Loved it, but after under 2 years it kept switching itself off, some kind of elecrical fault. For the money I paid, 2 years use is no way good enough.Published on 29 Dec. 2014 by Tony
Just what I was looking for. A steel pot that can fry off then the whole lot can be heated and then kept hot. No more juggling frying pans etc.Published on 29 April 2014 by Buddy
What a massive disappointment. The design is good, it stores away well, large size. However, it burns everything. Actually, not burns but incinerates to oblivion! Read morePublished on 30 Aug. 2013 by Amazon Customer

Great as a casserole dish, large and usable on the hob and in the oven. However, it boils the food even at the lowest setting with the lid slightly off. Read morePublished on 16 Jan. 2013 by Mrs Mary Bye
