    Breville Slow cooker - not exactly slow.....recipies

    Hi All

    I have a 4.5 litre Breville slow cooker, problem is it doesnt cook slow. Last month i cooked a chilli that should have taken 8 hours but actually on ended up taking about 3 hours in this slow cooker.

    Does anyone have one of these?

    Also does anyone have any decent slow cooker recipies? has anyone ever donw soup in them?

    Thanks

    Hi Sarah

    It has 3 settings Low high and auto and it makes no difference which setting that you choose it still cooks everything stupidly fast, which kind of defeats the point of it really. I have had to buy a timer switch for it to control it.

    MrsSOS - great ill have a look!

    Mine's morphy richards one, generally the stuff is 'cooked' within 4 hours on medium and then it's just a matter of stuff staying warm and softening up. Like yesterday I did a gammon in it which was cooked by lunch time but I left it in until tea time so it was nice and tender.

    I was going to say the same as Mrs CC. Mine (Crockpot) cooks everything well by about 4 hours and then the next four hours seems to soften things up and make the house smell nice, lol.

    If you think it's overcooked by 8 hours then I'd get in touch with Breville because it's not doing what it is supposed to do!
