    Okay slow cooker friends...

    We walked the beat and this is what we found - Reviewers on slow cookers with the teflon/nonstick coating complained that the surface peeled after some time.

    Slow cookers that had digital displays/timers - reviewers said that once the timer or display went (just out of warranty usually) it then rendered the unit useless. I even looked up the cuisinart ones and this was also common with them.

    I went to go for the 6L Smart temp and hope that the display didn't go (but it was also okay priced if it did go and considered extra warranty if it wasn't too much) but of course the floor stock was the only one left and the sales lady was not helpful in sourcing another for us, just said that it was the end of winter and probably wouldn't get anymore in and to try and get one delivered...yep, at a cost.

    I wouldn't have minded the floor stock but that wasn't offered.

    What models have you all go and what would you recommend? What is recommended on the hard-core slow cooker websites?

    Wish I could help @Little Ted. I use an old school crock pot. Have you considered just trying out one of the Kmart ones? $35, you can't go wrong I don't think.
    @Apple iPhart6 is that recipe on the SC central recipes??

    Sorry I can't help with a recommendation either.
    Slow cooker central is a good Australian site. Most of the recipes on this are from that site. I am a make it up as I go. So a lot of my meals are a one offs.

    I've just got a no-frills brand called Casera that my MIL gifted me about 4 years ago. I found out it was a Go-Lo brand, but you know what? It's been fantastic!

    My suggestion would be to go for a more traditional/standard/inexpensive model, then if you really like it you can upgrade down the track. I say this because slow cookers IMO are great, but some people use them and find they are just not for them.

    Yup, it's from the book! It was very yummy but I used 1.2L of apricot nectar instead of 1L so made the silly decision to use three packets of French onion soup instead of two and it was too much!
