    Has anyone ever put the whole cooking thingy (the ceramic inner bit - I don't know what it's called) in the fridge? If I have leftovers or a change of meal plan I usually empty the food into a tupperware container before fridging it but I was thinking that just putting the whole thing in the fridge would cut down on washing up (I have lazy-housewifeitis) but then I though that it might crack when being reheated....

    Help! I made the beef in red wine (from chatter #2 thread) and it turned out really dry - would this have been cause I over-browned the meat, or because my crock is a 5.5 L one? I cooked it on high for 2 hours, then low for 3 hours ...

    I never cook with less than 2kgs of meat, I turn mine on low as i leave for work 7:45am & then when we walk in the door around 5pm, I turn it to keep warm, whist I do whatever else is going with it!!!

    Some have burnt up the side but mine is really big & probably I need 5kgs of meat but I think by then I'll be sick of that meal!!! hee hee!

    I did a beef roast in my SC a few nights ago, and today I have Debbie's Thai Chicken Green Curry (from slow cooker chatter thread #12) cooking in there. Fingers crossed ...

    Just found this thread and very excited!

    I LOVE my slow cooker, use it all winter, but not very adventurous with it. So far have only really cooked Silverside, the occasional roast, and some beef casseroles!

    Anyone got any good ideas with Chicken Breat Fillets??

    The Thai Chicken Green Curry was a hit!

    The only thing that I would change next time would be not using frozen veges (I was being lazy lol), as I think they had too much water in them and there ended up being a LOT more liquid by the end of the cooking time that what I started with.

    wow Cailin, it sounds like you're in SC heaven!!
    I might try the curry - Yasin loves rice so anything that goes with rice is a hit in our house.
