    Default Slow cooker which one?

    I need one that actually works, cooks food evenly, makes a sauce ( not just watery) doesn't create the burnt smell after only few hours, doesn't create mush

    I had a cheapie kambrook one that was great. It was given away when dp upgraded it with a kenwood as a present. The kenwood is good but takes way longer than the kambrook one. I must say though that the Kenwood one produces nicer tasting food but I don't know if that's because I have learned some really good recipes since getting the new one or not.

    My kambrook one had low, high and auto. My Kenwood has low, high and "keep warm".

    Yeah, the sear ones are great. I have a 7lt breville flavour saver and it is great. Can sear the meat in the same pan and it can even go in the oven if need be. Big enough to do a roast or corn beef.

    Be careful putting them in the oven as the plastic coating on handles can melt.
    I line mine with baking paper when doing breads and sweets or meats that need crisping up so I slide them onto a oven tray.

    I have a Kenwood and I think it's great. My previous one was a Sunbeam but I didn't like it as much. Plus I like the shape, so much easier to store

    Mine has silicone. I think it safe to 200c in the oven.
