It will do...
You get what you pay for as they say. Super cute to look at but... food sticks around edges when cooking on high and the plastic handles aren’t the best quality. For the once every so often user I guess it’s okish. You’ll be hard pressed to find anything quite this cheap though.
Great value for money, missing few key convenience measures
This is an overall great product which cooks evenly, is reliable and is extremely easy to clean. No scrubbing involved! It cooks evenly, doesn't burn and produces a great tasting meal.
However, it is lacking a timer (which is easily fixed my remembering to time the cooking on your phone), it doesn't have an on / off light so you do need to check that it's warming up and that it's turned off. It would be more convenient with a quick way to check it from afar such as a light, but overall this isn't a deal breaker. The lid can sometimes be a b...it picky if you get air trapped beneath it and begin to bang and clang but this is easily fixed by moving the lid slightly to release it. Overall this is a great product which I would recommend and you can't go past it for the price!
My slow cooker
I have had this for a little while now. I love it and I really love winter time or the colder weather as I can put some dinner on and not worry all day about dinner as can have a nice hot meal waiting for me when i come home. Super easy to clean, just remove the cooker itself and wash like your normal dishes.
Use it all the time
I use my slow cooker on a weekly basis and this one in particular works really well. Cleans easily and looks nice and stylish. My slow cooker saves me so much time and takes the stress out of preparing a meal when im out and about during the day time.
Love slow cooking
For me a slow cooker is an essential part of a kitchen and the Kmart 5l slow cooker fits the bill perfectly. It's stylish and does the job of cooking perfectly. I simply set up what I want to cook, turn it on and leave it. As it looks so good, it remains sitting on my kitchen bench at all times
This works perfectly well. Easy to clean. Looks great in black. What a great price for a product that gets so much use in my house. We cook roasts, casseroles, have even cooked the most delicious soups. It’s just so much easier tonpop a meal on in the morning and enjoy it whenever your day slows down. Been giving this a flogging and holding up so far
Don't cook dry.
I have had mine a couple of years and was getting good results until I got too clever today.
To cut down on cleaning, I started to put the ingredients into an oven bag.
This worked the first time because I was cooking for two in a large bag that inflated and dislodged the lid into the sink.
Next time, I cooked a single serve using a smaller bag leaving much of the inner liner dry and exposed to air.
After four hours cooking I lifted the lid to examine the contents and the sudden entry of cold air cracked the liner.
It is entirely my fault...
Does it's job
I got this for mothers day and I absolutely love it!!! Works perfectly and saves me so much time in the kitchen. Only thing I regret is not getting it sooner!!! You definitely don't need to spend a fortune on one this does just as good of a job as any other one.
Handy dandy with no hefty price tags
After looking around for a slow cooker for a while I opted for the cheaper version. Same great results as any other slow cookers and gets the job done, so easy. Just pop everything in and let it do the work, easy to clean and easy to cook. Wonderful kitchen appliance
Makes cooking so easy!
This is my favourite kitchen product by far! I use my slow cooker at least 3 times per week. It takes the hassle and fuss out of cooking. The meals you can prepare are endless and everything I have made has been so good! It's easy to clean also which makes washing up a breeze.
Great looking, good working
Cooks well, iv made a lot of things in it that i never imagined possible!! So easy to clean, looks really nice on the bench aswell, its not a tacky looking appliance you need to hide in the cupboard. I think the possibilities are endless in what you can cook! Even a pavlova.

Great time saver
I bought this to try out slow cookers and it turns out its a good one. I love how you can put ingredients in and it cooks dinner while youre at work. Its simple to use, easy to clean and does a tasty job. Im converted to the slow cooker way now.Another great Kmart gadget.
Pretty good for a beginner
This was my first venture into the world of slow cooking so I wasn't sure what to expect. I don't have any experience with any other brands but this one seemed to get the job done. Everything I have cooked has turned out well. The heating is even and it holds its heat after lifting the lid a lot.
Love my slow cooker. I use it at least once a week. Have experimented with different types of meals even made my own bread. It's great to take camping ... put your ingredients in the pot then enjoy your day. You don't have to spend all your holiday preparing and cooking meals. The best thing is you don't have to spend a fortune to buy it.
Bought a new slow cooker from Kmart and I can not be happier. I now use my slow cooker at least 3 times a week. So easy to use. Easy to clean. Was easy to learn to use it. I'm very happy with the slow cooker and encourage my family & friends to get their next one from Kmart. Thanks Kmart.
Questions & Answers
can I get a slow cooker with a ceramic bowl and a sealed lid
The bowl in the Kmart slow cooker is ceramic - and high quality.
The smooth surface is a cinch to clean.
Often I make a potato bake (the slow cooking makes the Sebago potatoes creamy) top with some mozzarella in the oven.
I have stewing steak and onion on cook now - browned on BBQ first, 1 litre water
The lid is a good fit, but not sealed - there has to be room for expansion/steam to escape.
