"A slow cooker, also known as a Crock-Pot or Slo-Cooker (trademarks that are often used generically in the US-Canada and UK, respectively), is a countertop electrical cooking appliance that is used for simmering, which requires maintaining a relatively low temperature compared to other cooking methods (such as baking, boiling, and frying)for many hours, allowing unattended cooking of pot roast, stew, and other suitable dishes.

crockpot is a older version, slow cooker is the new version you can buy, which does cook a little hotter than the old C/Pot. Have 1 of each prefer C/P but use S/C for soups,silverside, big roasts, chooks, chutneys,etc use the C'P for slower cooked stews, mince, meatballs,spaghetti bol desserts,chicken pieces, any meat, with sauces, as it dosent dry out meats or over cook.

Slow cookers are safer they heat up to simmering. Some slow cooker years ago required a carton of loo paper with each use.
