S'Blue, I've been using the new crockpot liners. They are fantastic. Most of the time I don't have to clean the pot at all. Just a wipe-out with a damp cloth.

I had forgot about those. That would definitely be the way to go. Thanks.

Thanks all for clearing that up for me. I guess I have a crockpot! As for recipes I have used it for almost everything that I would cook in a pot or oven that requires a length of time. I adjust some parts like the liquid.

I do lamb shanks in mine with some red currant and red wine and a sprig of rosemary and a small stock cube and a little water and it's really good.

You can use it for almost any casserole or chicken quarters with whatever seasoning and herbs you fancy.

Yes, but they were extremely hungry at the time.

At school I was often called 'slow' by one particular teacher, but not a cooker!

I borrowed my daughter in law's crockpot last Thanksgiving because I wanted to do a double batch of my dressing. The one in her pot dried out and was terrible. Definitely ran much hotter than mine. Mine is probably 10 years old - not that old, but it runs low & slow.

I couldn't find a crock pot in England, so I bought a slow cooker called a "curry cooker" which is exactly like my mum's old crockpot, except it's a gorgeous shade of purple, and because of the dodgy branding and the weird colour, it was half price (and it's Kenwood)

I adore it. Best thing I ever bought!
