    How do you do your mince without it going funny?
    Everytime I have cooked mince or a mince based dish it ends up with a strange texture ( almost sludgey)

    Hmm I have not had the issue. I have a metal insert so I don't know if that makes a difference. I do all my spaghetti sauce and lasagna in mine. I have done rissoles etc too

    What sort of dishes are giving you trouble. I've not encountered it either but perhaps there is something in your method?

    I always fry my mince off first- I don't like the slow cooker texture of mince when it goes in raw.

    I always brown mince first too and I've never had an issue with texture.

    I put my porcupines in raw when I do them and don't have an issue though. Perhaps it's because they've got a flour coating?
