The best electric stockpot/slow cooker?

Hi, any ideas anybody?

I want to try and get as large a capacity as possible. I've seen one that has a 'non-stick' surface but I heard that 'non-stick' is not very healthy...

Thanks for any advice.

I like this glass one I have: http://www.amazon.co....­
And glass doesn't leach.

I use a big glass slow cooker. Got it second hand at a boot fair. I wouldn't consider a 'non-stick' finish - I use stainless steel or glass for everything (though my frying pan is seasoned iron, £13 from a restaurant supplies shop).

This site is good to make you think about exactly what you want though (but look at them on the shelf in a high street store before buying, then look for 'pre-loved' versions): http://www.which.co.u...­

I have the same one that Claire mentioned. I really like it but be warned it does run too hot so things cook quicker which is a bit of pain if you are leaving it on during the day without supervision (kind of the idea of a slow cooker though!) I heard that all modern slow cooker run hotter now in case we all get food poisoning lol.

I put this message up a few months ago and ended up getting one that was too small. So I'm trying to find the best stockpot that meets these requirements (or at least minimises compromise):
• 8 litres plus capacity
• Electric slow cook
• No leaching
Anybody know anything that fits (or nearly fits) this bill?
Thanks
James

I would be surprised if the new models leach anything. We have a six litre slow cooker. Only issue is, that you need a correspondingly large freezer, plus containers capable of storing frozen stock or stew, unless of course if you have a large family who will eat it before it goes off.

This one, from Netherton Foundry does not meet your size requirements, but it is cast iron and MADE IN BRITAIN. Of course, you could always get a cheap, large one for big stocks, roasting a large bird, etc. that lives in your store cupboard, and then have one of these for when you cook something special, a smaller meal, and want a nicer piece of kit that can look great on the kitchen worktop. Just the sight of the tagine lid makes me hungry!

I also love their garden hob, for outdoors slow cooking, for those long, slow days out in the garden. Yes, it will be summer again one day!!

Hi Phil

Hope you're well, and thanks for the steer on this.

I do have quite a large freezer. What make is your 6-litre slow cooker?

Regards

If you have the money for it or are an acolyte of Blumenthal and other Sous-vide supremos, this 'posh' slow-cooker is impressive : SousVide Supreme Demi by Lakeland for the Kingly sum of 250 quid.

Myself, i use a crock-pot, 5L - many know Crockpot invented the first electric slow cooker 'rival'; their website might have the capacity the OP requires with all the bells and whistles minus the gargantuan sum.
