Hi BBW, would you recommend a slow cooker, I don't have one but from your recipies and other Aber's post they seem to be quite good, should I invest in one?

War - you would love one if you get it!!! You can put a large frozen meat of any kind in it before you leave for work - or when you go to bed - and when you open the front door or get up in the morning - it smells wonderful!!! Just don't make the mistake of putting any water in with it - it will make it's own juice - you can sprinkle any herbs/spices on it you want to though. The one I have is - I believe - I am not in the kitchen right now is a GE - but I think you guys have brands there that we don't have here in the USA - I have had a couple of others over the years - and I can't tell the difference in the brand. The only thing I look for is one with a removable crock - so I can put it in the dishwasher - but now the Reynolds Aluminum Wrap people have the disposable liners you can buy so all you have to do is just throw them away when the food is gone - so that wouldn't even be a problem!!! I would think just look for one that is on sale - and maybe larger than you think you need, because it is so easy, you will find so many ways to cook a large quantity of food and then freeze leftovers to have another day!!!
There are lots of views on which slow cooker to buy. By the way they are really cheap to run - I think I read somewhere that they run on the equivalent of light bulb. The last time I used mine I put a piece of beef with the bone in it. I browned it all over first, and then just let it cook on its own. You can buy slowcookers a very reasonable prices - you don't need to spend a fortune, you will often see them very cheap at car boots. .html?t=76138&highlight=slow+cooker+buy
Sorry, the above link wasn't very easy to read, try this instead. .html?t=76138&highligh
Thanks girls, will look into this as anything that gives me less work is good!!! BBW great to see you posting in body and soul, I was going to suggest you look there ages ago as I thought someone with your qualities would have good advice to give!!!

War what a sweet thing to say honey!!! Although there are those who say I am "just full of opinions" :) It is the ABer's like you who make it so nice to participate here!!!

I can't wait for you to get your slow cooker - I think you will love it!!! The person who suggested you get an oval shaped one was right - easier to fit frozen things in it (I never brown mine first - but you can if you want to) - and also one that has a low and a high is nice to have (although I have rarely used the high function) - other than that - not anything else they really need to have.
Hi BBWCHATT I am a big fan of Slo cookers too. There is nothing to beat arriving home in the winter from work to the glorious smell of chicken/beef/lamb or whatever hotpot is your favourite ( I love them all). I leave 2 upturned bowls on top of my cooker so that I have a nice warm bowl ready for my meal, a slice of granary bread or a crusty roll and thats all there is to it. Delicious.................its the best thing about winter!
Am really excited now, can't wait to get my slow cooker!!! How sad am I to get excited of this????? I am gonna have loads of fun with this!!!!!
Lurve my slo-cooker. I have the round dish but next time around I will buy the one with the oval dish. Last week had a shoulder of lamb that was a bit bigger than usual and couldn't get it in the pot until I de-boned it first. Hassle I could have done without! Delicious nevertheless.
Any recommendations for brand names?
I have got a Morphy Richards one with the earthenware pot .
I am now on my second one and have been using a slow cooker for well over thirty years. You can cook just about anything in them and the cheapest cuts of meat will be mouthwateringly tender .They have a bit of fan club here in Food and Drink ..have a look in the search box ..loads of discussion !
If you do buy one you won't regret it and if you are not sure how to proceed I recommend this book which is worth every penny . !10667
Thanks shaneystar2, I had noticed people talking about them on here and it kinda got me wondering! Am going to look in Argos catalogue and see what is on offer.

Many thanks
