The slow cooker is the only kitchen gadget I have ever encountered which actually delivers on the late-night-TV-infomercial promise of them all, which is "Push button; receive food". (Somewhere between two and twenty hours of waiting are elided, but I can leave home for a substantial portion of that, so I don't care. Besides, the TV infomercials elide that too)
I've actually discovered that the "low" setting on my slow cooker is too low to cook gristly meats properly, but that's a small price to pay. The slow cooker is the only kitchen gadget I really can't live without.
(Instant oatmeal, just wait four hours!)
