There are some excellent recipes on here, simply type slow cooker or crock pot into the keyword space.

Also the Alison Holst slow cooker recipe book is great.

Have fun

thanks guys. looking forward to experimenting with things

dont keep lifting the lid, it adds (i think) close to 30m cooking time everytime you do it, and reduce the liquids, if using your own recipe

well at the moment i am trying to decide beef stroganoff,stew or putting a whole chicken in there and doing it similar to a roast in it.. as i have seen in some threads.

Totally agree with Skye on the Alison Holst books - there are 2, a green one and a red one.Also Joan Bishop has writtten a couple as has Robyn Martin, while Allyson Gofton's "Slow" is also popular.

I prefer the Holst books because they have lots of useful hints,but if you want to check before you buyyour local library will probably have some of them.

I can recommend the Breville Fast Slow Cooker, it is a combination of both Slow Cooking & Pressure Cooking.I am using it daily.Purchased from Noel Leeming in April.Was on a Special Price $179.99.I know this sounds a lot, but you get what you pay for.
