Hi all

I bought a replacement slow cooker today in Argos and even had a penny change out of a tenner. It's the Cookworks one, quite small at 2.5 litre capacity - perfect for singletons like me or for luvvy duvvy couples with or without an ankle-biter. The normal price is £19.99 but this is currently a sale item.

Gingham Ribbon & Pink Winged - would you mind leaving this in Old Style for a day or two before sending it to "Grabbit" as I think it'd appeal to mostly Old Style bods. Thanks and kissy kissy!

    Thank you Pink, that is indeed the very one! I made a booboo in my first post regards the size of the appliance - the slow cooker is definitely 3.5 litre capacity.

    I've had this slow cooker twice now. It's lovely and compact BUT I seem to crack the crockpot after a year or so each time. :rolleyes: If you get it do look after the crock.

    I never did that to the big morphy richards one I had when i was with the ex (he ate a lot!) - (that lasted 5 years before I decided it was just too big for my needs)so have just invested in a 3.5l morphy richards one again.

    they are a good buy, I'm just not careful enough with my washing up, lovely and compact on the worktop.

    I'm gonna get one for my sister's Xmas pressie. Remember I was putting together an ol' style kitchen starter pack for her birthday - this will be a nice follow up on the same theme for Xmas. I'll fill it with home madebath bombs and lotions and potions.

    Sorry in advance for dumbness. But what is a slow Cooker and what do you cook in it?

    Would this be big enough for two adults and two toddlers. I'm new to all this slowcooking stuff and not to sure about portion size and such.
