    I still use the one I got as a wedding present back in 1977. It went in the cupboard for a few years, but came back out a year or so ago and now I use it about 2-3 times a week. It's fab to come home to the smell of a fully cooked dinner.

    Woofy, I often do all the prep the night before, put it in the slow cook pan, bring it to the boil in the morning and then it has all day to simmer gently on the slow cooker love.

    I'm the same - like to be individual and not follow the crowd with styles and trends. Or try to anyway! :D

    No woofy, they are designed to work that way love, the heat is so little it can't boil over or cook too much.

    Not liking my slow cooker. Maybe the hint was in the names as its SO. BLOODY SLOW!!!

    Do you pop things in raw? Or do you fry things up 1st.
    I did Jim Jims curry and it was horrible, though I did eat it .....

    They all look good to me, for those on induction I'd recommend swapping the onion out for scallions.
