    I had a one for years till it finally died :( I just havent got round to getting another one yet, but I do miss it, I used it loads though, expecially in the winter - nothing better than coming home to a lovely hot meal all ready to warm you up :D

    Yummy, minced beef and onions then dumplings added near the end. On a cold day it makes the house smell divine and it's scrummy to eat with buttery crusty bread.

    I bought one of these in an Argos sale, thought it would be really good to come home to dinner already cooked. Then I realised that it would smell very tempting and there is nothing that Ferdie can't reach! So I thought it would be too dangerous leave on. I used it once, on a Saturday when I was here all day. I just wish I had somewhere safe to put it on.

    The only place would be my bedroom, on the floor. I suppose I could try that and hope it doesn't boil over!

    I use my slow cooker loads. Do steamed puddings, both sweet and savoury in it. All my roast meats get done in it, they come out so lovely and tender . Casseroles, hotpots, pork chops...the list is endless really.

    I ditched my big oven too after it went wrong and its also hard to lift things out of it with dodgy knees, so I bought a small tabletop oven and a halogen oven to try aswell. The halogen took some getting used to but noone has had food poisoning yet. Have mastered roast potatoes in it, my god they are to die for. But with 3 different types of oven including the microwave I am finding it easier to cook meals for us .
