    Default Tell me about your slow cooker

    Does food stick and burn on the sides?

    It's good and bad points.

    Litreage.

    Ease of clean.

    Thinking of getting one.

    I have a 6 litre (family of 6) and it is one appliance I couldn't live without! Mine doesn't stick or burn and has always been easy to clean. It was just a cheapie from Coles and we have had it for 6 years now. Join the " Slow cooker recipes 4 families" Facebook page......you will be amazed at what you can cook in it!

    I think we would like either a 5 or 6 litre one as I often do a cook-up and expect leftovers. That, and in the future there will be boy teenagers to feed!

    Does food stick and burn on the sides? Slight stickage, but easily cleaned off.

    It's good and bad points - no bad points, it's all good

    Litreage - 3.5

    Ease of clean - easy

    Thinking of getting one - DO IT

    I've been off in the land of The Good Guys website -

    There's a Breville Flavour Maker and a Breville Smart Temp.

    The Flavour Maker is only 5L but has a removable bowl that can go on the stove to do the pre-browning.

    The Smart Temp is 6L, still has a removable bowl but is not for the stove.

    One is asking themselves if they can custom-make a 6L removable bowl that can go on the stove.

    I had a four or five over the last twenty years. By far my metal insert is the best ever. So easy to use. So light. So easy to clean. Honestly nothing ever sticks to it, that can't be removed with a nappy wipe.
    I love it.

    I have never put in on the stove to brown meat but you can if you like.

    Mine is huge rectangle one which is great for my big family. It also great for lasagna and breads and cakes. Oh and roasts as they always fit where some smaller cookers do struggle with that. I have put 2 whole cooks into cook if I like. The lasagna I made last night was big enough to do my family 2 meals.

    Yeah I really love my slow cooker. I use it more now than I ever did with a ceramic insert ones.

    This week I have done chicken legs, a roast, a lasagna and a pull a part pizza cob loaf.

    Mines is a bellini. Sear something? Sorry I dint remember the exact title. I got it from target a few years back.

    I have a Cuisinart 3 in 1.

    It slow cooks, brown/sauté and steams. Very easy to clean. Can go in the dishwasher. It's not a ceramic one. Can't remember how many litres but it's pretty big. I love it.
