Yep I have both.
I love my thermy but I love my slow cooker about the same but for different ways.
Slow cookers are great for being organised and getting ahead. I searched and found a heap of recipes I could do as 'dump bags'. So everything is in and ready to go and in the freezer so when I need to I just grab it out the night before to defrost a little in the fridge then chuck it in the slow cooker about 9am and come 5.30 it's all ready to go, just add rice etc.
I also do my roasts in there a lot now. I chuck whole potatoes an onion chopped in half and a few carrots in the bottom then stick a hunk of meat on top (usually quickly season and add some mustard powder then brown quickly). With about 20 mins to go I chuck the veg in a really hot oven while I'm cooking my Yorkshire puddings. You can use the juice in the bottom of the slow cooker to make awesome gravy to 😊 I still do my roast chicken in the thermomix tho.
I bought the slow cooker central iBook but had to really trawl through to find things that were to our taste and I modified things a bit to add extra veg etc as I feel like some stuff wasn't that healthy.

No thermy here.
I have a metal insert slow cooker and cook everything and anything in it.
Stews/casserole type stuff
Baking cake scrolls etc.
Mexican chicken for taco/ burritos or wrap and sandwiches.
And so much more
I love on my I couldn't be bothered days I can chuck something in morning on low or lunch on auto or just before school pick the up/ after school (mince or potato based meals) on high and not have to touch it again.

My slow cooker is about 5 years old. I keep it away from walls/anything else. Do not overfill. I also make sure it is not near water.
The only way that a fire would start is if you had it on for so long it all dried up or if there was something wrong with the cord etc (electrical fire).
