Be careful which size you go for!
on 11 January 2017
My Mother raves about her slow cooker and I must admit that the food she has cooked in it has always been very tasty and homely. So, along with a slow cooker cookery book I ordered this item. Really good quality and looks great in its polished steel finish. I've just used it for the first time today but as food is still in there cooking I can't comment on how it has cooked. The main point I wanted to make was be careful which size you order. I ordered the 3.5L model as I'd read through the reviews and people had said that this was big enough for 4 people which depending on what you are cooking might well be. I would imagine if your cooking a Stew or a Curry for example this would be great or even a medium sized Meat joint. I've put a medium sized Chicken in mine today which fitted ok however there wasn't really any room for the vegetables I'd planned to cook with it. So I can't help wishing I'd gone for the next size up. Some people might argue the next size up is too big but I do alot of batch cooking for the freezer so this would have been a better choice. The five stars are really for the quality of the product, speed of delivery and packaging. I'm sure the slow cooker will be excellent at what it does, just think carefully about what you want to cook in it and the size before you order.
