    I have the Tesco's one and it's good. I must admit, I had it for 9/10 months and never used it but I braved it few weeks ago and SC a whole roast chicken (just chucked whole chicken in as is with no water but skin removed and cooked on high for 5hrs. It came out beautifully flakey and lush :D I always cook thighs/legs in the SC but I'm a big fan of chicken - my other SC friends tell me cheap cuts of beef come out beautifully in their SC. They use it mainly for hearty stews :D

    You can make really low cal stews in it.... Some cheap beef, couple of tins of tomatoes, veg(onions, peppers , carrots, mushrooms) and some herbs/garlic/worcester sauce.... It is fab x

    I make beef stew about once a week in the winter. The whole meal comes to 400ish calories including potatoes, and is so lovely and delish.

    There's a recipe section in this calorie counting part of the site and I think there's already a thread about slow cooker recipes. Go share the ones you guys have posted here, they sound lovely!
