I gave up on my slow cooker, I had thought I was going to get amazing casseroles, curries and soups.
Never really produced anything that wasn't as good or better from the oven. Though that may be down to my skill rather than the cooker!
Meat comes out amazing in a slow cooker - so tender as to fall apart on your fork. Only trouble is it's a bit of a pain to make sure you don't poison yourself (slow cookers don't get hot enough to kill bacteria, so you need to seal the meat in a hot pan first) and frankly I don't have the time in the morning to prepare my evening meal. Also I don't believe in making stews in anything less than olympic quantities, and my slow cooker is just too small. Stew = prepare once, eat like a king for days.
Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!
