Hi, to my mind they are the same thing, simply different countrys expression for the same thing. Thanks Dave.

Some of the more modern slow cookers are quicker than the old school crockpots, so take that into consideration.

I ended up buying a genuine crockpot (2nd hand off here), as the modern ones are a bit fierce.

Look out for specials - I got one a warehouse this week for 50 bucks - 6.5 litre Akai.

These days they all seem to be slow cookers.Still wish my old crockpot was going - it was far superior.

There is a difference. in my Joan Bishop 'slow cooker cookbook' the times for most things are a bit longer for crockpot. she provides 2 different times for each recipe.Looks like the soups use the same timing, but meat/ chicken, veges etc take between half- one hour longer in a crockpot.

Crockpots are slower for sure, I've had one of them and now have a slow cooker, I quite like that I still get the slow cooking but not having to wait as long, as in having to get stuff on earlier etc.Each to thier own I guess, but to me time is the only differnece i've found.
