It is also cost effective, using the same amount of energy as a lightbulb, and though I would never leave the house with the oven or hob on, I have no qualms about leaving the slow cooker plugged in.
I personally have a 3.3l and a 6l. The 3.3l is perfect for a family of 3 or 4, unless you are doing something like lamb shanks when you might need something larger.
They retail at around £20/25, so it's not too big an investment if you don't take to it, and if you don't I bet you'd find someone who would!
@mediocre_mum hosts a #scsunday (slowcooker sunday) over on her blog, which is a great place for ideas and inspiration, and I have bought several books from Amazon starting at around £3.
What's not to love? Would love some feedback :)
