Go for it!Purchased my budget slow cooker in July 19 and the box is still unopened.
Think i might open it up Sunday and try and cook the easiest slow cooker meal possible to start with lol.
My slow cooker is the most budget model around, I think. It was about a tenner from The Range years ago, but it's one of my most used aplliances. Not much beats the smell of a nice beef stew cooking away. I stick mine on first thing on a Sunday morning and it's ready for dinner dinner time, just needs the dumplings chucking in about half hour before eating time.
It's so quick and easy to prepare.
