    Singa, there is just my dp and I (plus a bun in the oven). There is usually enough for dinner, lunch the following day and then 2 nights dinner in the freezer, though it depends on the dish. My current favourite recipe is a moroccan lamb soup, so yummy!

    Yum sounds great! Yeah I usually come back to mine a few times and give it a bit of a stir. You don't have to though mine used to be on all day while we were both at work and no stirring happened.

    I have 2. A small (think its 4 or 5L) one that is more upright and a larger oval one. I do a lot of casseroley things in the small one, and get 2-3 meals for us. The larger one is great for shanks, roasts (meat is so tender), corned beef and Osso Bucco.

    I sometimes make things from scratch and other times I cheat and use McCormick's sauce mixes because it's quicker if I have a whingy toddler or baby (or both!!) and only have 5 minutes to chuck something on. The chicken curry one is especially yummy, and I have it cooking now

    I have a 5.5L and a 7L. I use them each for different things, but I would recommend the bigger one. I'm the sort of cook who always adds extra veges and legumes etc to my casserole type meals. Also if you have big meat things with bones they may not fit in the small one such as lamb shanks or turkey drumsticks. As for recipe books I borrowed an excellent book from the library called 'Slow Cooker' or something just as memorable. My favorite thing about winter is that I can start doing lots of slow cooking again.

    I started out with the small 2 ltr George Forman slow cooker, then upgraded to a large 6.6 ltr one. I love my small one for casseroles (especially the ones out of the packet), but its harder to do larger cuts of meat in it (and slow cooked roasts are so very yummy ).

    I do casseroles, soups, roasts, pot roasts, corned beef (really nice with just the beef, 1.2 ltr ginger ale and an onion), lasagne, and they are even great for some sweet recipes. The list is pretty much endless, I've converted heaps of stove top and oven recipes to the slow cooker (used less water) and it always comes out very nice.

    I actually plan on using mine more when I'm not working (which is silly since I brought it for when I went on night shift ). There are heaps of new recipes that I want to try

    I don't stir halfway coz the instructions recommend not to as it lets too much heat escape
