I bought one. I understand that they cook things more slowly at a lower heat. Is there a general rule for making, say casseroles? Do I make the kind of casserole I would normally but put it in the slow cooker all day rather than the oven for an hour or two? Do I need an actual recipe book? Mine comes with a book but there's nothing in it that I would want to cook especially or extra ingredients are needed.
If I browned some beef stewing steak and onions, then threw them in with a chopped leek, celery, pepper, mushroom, tinned toms and a stock cube - would that work? Or would I need to do something else?
