    Default What slow cooker do you have?

    I thought I would start a thread, then combine everyone's answers on the slow cooking chatter thread. If you know how much you paid for it and when, include that too!



    I was given a gift of a Breville Meal Maker about 1-2 years ago

    I was given a "Prima" slow cooker for my birthday last year. I've since seen them in the shops & they retail for about $49.

    I have a 5ltr Black and Decker SC that I've had for a year now. I got it from K-mart for $49.99 but it was on special but I can't remember how much is was before. Mine also has a removable insert, glass lid and is stainless steel and black like Fletchie's. I love mine too and am about to spend the next week cooking our dinners in there, yummy!

    We have a Sunbeam Stonewear Crock-Pot........it is plain white, but with a glass lid.

    At this time of year I literally use it every day.......as I speak I am smelling Italian Meatballs.............LOL

    From memory it was around $60. It has been in constant use for about 3 years......I wouldn't be without it. It is also a dream to clean.

    I picked one out for my birthday last year, and my mum picked it up for me. It's a Russell Hobbs 6 Ltr oval SC with Removable Stoneware liner and a glass lid. Liner is black and base unit is "Classic Satin" according to the booklet!

    Can't quite remember pricing, my mum got a discount on it as she knew the salesperson. I think it was around $90, but I think mum paid around $70 for it? Can't quite remember now :-k

    I have a Russell Hobbs Classic Oval Slow Cooker.... 3.5ltr, glass lid aswell.
    My sister bought it for me for Christmas and I bought her one for Christmas, LOL.
    It only cost $45 but that's because my sister works at Retravision and gets a family discount... bargain!

    I love, love, love mine but I can see myself wanting to upgrade to a 5ltr SC as I use it more and more.

    I also have a Breville Meal Maker, 5 litre. I got it last year for Mothers Day, it was on special for around $70. We also got my mum and Dp's mum one too. I love mine, but sometimes wonder if they come any bigger. Hey, I have a big family.



    Take care

    I have a Morphy Richards oval slow cooker, 6.5L, stainless steel. It has a glass lid too.

    It was a wedding gift from my dad's mum's brother and his wife. I've only just started to think about using it, so will buy some food to put in it this weekend and see what I can make Monday (DH was out for dinner last night else I would have used it yesterday).

    I also have the Breville Meal Maker 5.5kg which I purchased for $52 from The Good Guys approx 3wks ago.

    It also came with a bonus thermal carry bag so you can take it with you to parties if need be.

    Mine is exactly like Danni's - a Ronson silver one with black insert. I have no idea what mine cost... mum gave it to me as she wasn't using it and my cousin gave it to her as she wasn't using it. So I got it 3rd hand but brand new!

    Default Is bigger better??

    Ok Girls, I am taking the plunge and heading down tomorrow to buy a slowcooker and need some advice. I have a pretty large family and am wondering what size i should get. Would a 4L be enough or will I need a 6L??
    Thanks in advance.

    I would say a 6L one would be better for a large family.

    I've got a 6.5L one and it's great you don't have to fill it all the way up of you don't want too.
