    I love mine. Makes the best bolognese sauce and I make a yummy lentil bolognese sauce too. Mine is a cheap one and works well.

    on Sunday I did baked potatoes in mine. Yes it took 8 hours but it was so easy. Just wrap med to large potatoes in foil and place straight into the cooker. No oil or water needed.

    they were super fluffy and kids loved them.

    I absolutely love my slow cooker. I use it at least three times a week.

    At the weekend I did Mexican pulled pork tacos. Amazing. And I'm not a pork eater. I got the recipe on here from another thread ages ago but not sure who the poster was. Whoever you are, a thousand thank yous!!!!

    Thanks guys!! I think this is what I need - I'm guessing it doesn't let out too much heat so still ok to use in summer? Can you leave it on when you go out?

    Yes they Don't heat up the room like a oven does, so can be used all year round.

    Tomato paste
    Cheese

    Mix flour salt and herbs add water and stir. Stir through half of your topping. Put into a baking paper lined slow cooker. Spread out and top with the rest of your toppings.
    Bake on high 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours on high with a tea towel under the lid.

    I have made it both in my big cooker and dd's smaller $20 kmart one. It always turns put great. I even taught dds bf to make it last time I was down there.

    I love my slow cooker, especially in winter time so I can make lots of yummy casseroles and soups. So easy to just chuck everything in and leave it.

    I made a beef strong today. Put it on at 10 when the kids were playing and at 6 when we were ready bingo dinner is done. No stirring, no nothing
