    We did Coca Cola beef. Meh, it was ok. Not bad but not as good as I thought it was supposed to be.

    No such thing in this house! With the crazy hot weather today, I simply put the slow cooker to do its thing outside in the carport and served with salad! Will still be slow cooking my way through summer too!!

    I use the slow cooker all year round. It heat up the house like a oven does. The convenience is just to huge.

    So what's your thoughts on putting meat in frozen??? I did it early this morning as I forgot to defrost mine overnight but thought it's all good it's just going to take a little longer....

    I stupidly googled it and found warnings not to do it... So tell me... Do I have to throw out my dinner??? Have you cooked from frozen in the slow cooker?

    If it helps I am cooking it on HIGH...

    A lot of people swear by cooking from frozen and say they've never had a problem and think the result is even better but I'm going to stick with food safety standards and I won't do it.

    It's your call if you throw out your dinner but I personally wouldn't risk it.

    What are you cooking? Big chunks of meat (i.e.an entire roast).

    If its something like chops, shanks, chicken pieces or diced up meat I'd be cool with it.

    Although there are plenty of people that do it without issues.

    I haven't cooked from frozen.

    I think the message is you CAN do it, but you shouldn't do it.

    This link states why:

    I've not used mine yet but bought for summer not winter as thought that'd be better than the oven, am I wrong? I didn't think they emitted much heat?

    I do it all the time.
    Thing like chicken legs I give it a stir a hour or so in to male dire they are all coated in the sauce. I adjust cooking times to allow for it.

    They do emit heat and unfortunately you aren't going to avoid that but I would say it's not as intense. We have gas cooking in our house and no air con so for us using the slow cooker in summer makes sense for us. It was 39 here yesterday. I put the slow cooker out under the car port and had a lovely dinner waiting while the house remained cool. Nobody said they were an indoors only appliance!!
