I want one too but Chloe would go insane smelling the food all day while I was at work, fear she may drown herself in her own saliva! lol!

Ah chloe is a bit of a fanny you see! I could see her losing the will to live, jumping on the counter and just having a wee snack! She is a greedy sod..takes after her mother! lol! Remember a few years ago my flat mate went out to buy some cheese and bacon. Came home and went out for a ciggie then couldnt find the bag with the cheese and bacon in it. He started thinking he had left it in Spar or something and hunted everywhere...then we found a half eaten block of cheese hidden under chloes blanket and an empty pack of bacon! She wasnt too well after that! lol! How she even managed to get the bacon open is beyond me, I cant do that and i used a knife!

I'm making pork in ale in mine for Saturday when my parents come - there is hardly any smell as the lid keeps everything in - thats basically how it cooks - all the moisture goes straight back in - there is a very faint whiff but nothing much - I cooked sausage casserole in mine overnight recently no probs - gotta use the cheaper electric rates n all that eh lol - just froze the portions then for later & hey presto - great meal to re-heat when in a hurry.

I bought one last year, and have only ever cooked Beef Bourguignon in it a few times. It's lovely, however I wouldn't know how many WW points are in a portion now, so haven't used it

I LOVE my slow cooker. I just experiment, I stick all different stuff in mine, love it!!!
I bought a new one from asda £3 (smartprice bargain) and I'm SO pleased with it, it's perfect for me as it's small and it cooks quite quickly for a slow cooker (< i'm aware thats a stupid thing to say lol! but my old one was a bit rubbish)
