    I loved our rice cooker that I killed it with use! I didn't bother to replace as the new ones didn't have the same functions so went back to basic pot.

    My slow cooker is the least used item, nearly every recipe says to brown things in the fry pan first, so if I have to make that a mess I might as well cook the lot in it! If I had recipes that were just chuck in and let it go then maybe I'd use it more.

    I love my slow cooker <3 I use it at least once a week in winter, there are so many things you can make in it. I never brown mine just chuck it all in and flip it on

    My slow cooker is useless, we don't eat casseroles so a complete waste of money.

    I am surprised by all the juicer comments, I couldn't live without mine! I usually rinse it straight away and it's clean.

    I don't follow any of the instructions in slow cooker recipes about browning or cooking things first I just chuck it all in and it turns out great! Big time saver with a new bubs as i do it in the morning when I have a bit more energy

    I feel so guilty because it was a gift but food dehydrator. Used it once. Maybe if I had more time because it takes hours upon hours upon hours (and is loud).

    i will keep the slowcooker because we use it very occasionally but it comes second.

    Definitely the slow cooker. It changes the flavour of the food and I'll just cook in a saucepan.

    I'm glad to see thermomix isn't getting mentioned. I want one.
