I love my slow cooker that my mum bought for me many years ago but its on its way it out and I really need to have a new one before winter arrives! I am unsure of which brands are good and want to know your recommendations. I am not too fussed if it has multi functions, just as long as it has slow cooking. And I really don’t want to spend anything over $150.

Ask your question

  • Stay with Breville, Ronson, Sunbeam or Kambrook. They are all reasonably priced and do work for a long time.
    I bought an Aldi brand that was larger than my 3 litre one and it burns everything – seems like the thermostat is useless.



  • I have had mine for years and I love it … it’s a breville



  • I brought my russell hobbs from Myer for $60 when the sale was on



  • I’ve got a Breville and it works great. Not sure about other brands, but what I love most about my slow cooker is that I can sear meat etc directly on the stove in my insert and then put the insert into slow cooker so you don’t loose any flavour, juices. Love this feature.



  • We have a sunbeam and love it. There are so many that work well and under $50, just depends on the size you want.



  • I have a really good sunbeam one with a timer, I got it from target and love it



  • Mine is a Ronson. I’m fairly sure I got it on special somewhere. It’s great. It as a low, high and keep warm function- pretty much all you need I think. Kmart or somewhere like Harris Scarfe are places you could go to get a good price for a reasonable slow cooker.



  • I was given a “generic” brand one bought from a Discount Store and use it a lot, especially in the cooler months. Mine hasn’t been used for quite as long as yours but is showing no signs of gving up at all.



  • I agree; K.Mart is an excellent place to buy goods. I have purchased appliances from them and they are reasonably priced and the appliances just keep on going.



  • I have a slow cooker from kmart it cost under $30 and its fantastic. I Love It. its has 3 settings and a 3 year warranty. definitely no need to spend more than $50



  • I have a Kambrook too and it does an excellent job! Happy shopping!



  • i have a kambrook. it is great. it cost under $50 and it is great.



  • How big do you want it?
    I have a breville and am very happy with mine.
    It is a 3.5 Litre. I have had it for 5 years.
