Buying a slow cooker

A 3L, just can't decide between the Cascade at the Warehouse which is round or the Home Brand from K Mart which is oval.I can't afford anything dearer than those two.Which would be best!Thanks.

i find oval is the best shape as you can fit a large chicken, mutton hocks, etc etc

Oval, so you can cook a chicken

I have got both, round and oval, I would say buy an oval one as you can fit meat/chicken in it better.I was restricted with my round one which I bought first

OK, thanks.:)

Go oval shape, holds a leg of meat if you ever decide to cook one, Good luck, happy cooking, they are wonderful machines.

I decided to keep looking after seeing bad reviews for both of them.

Save your pennies and watch briscoes they usually have good buys at some stage, brands well i really don't know i have a crockpot 25 yrs old and love it also have anewer slow cooker russell hobbs brand which is hotter but its good for silverside, roasts soups etc don't like that as much for some things. Go to your library read consumer mag report for the best one they tested,that might help.

We have one from Briscoes, Zip brand. Love having a slowcooker, it usually get's used several times a week! Like fifie said, just watch out for Briscoes sales, don't buy one full price. They come up on special all the time!
