I am very happy with the end cooking results and it is super easy to clean. The product has a nice, modern exterior & it is very fitting within a modern kitchen/house. It is extremely well priced and and it makes the best addition to the kitchen, especially in winter.
Very happy with the cooking results. It's a little heavy. But if left on a bench it's ok. The inside can be removed and cleaned easily. Overall very satisfied With this product. The settings are good. High or low and shorter or longer cooking time. I'm Happy with this product.
Affordable and great for a beginner
I never owned a slow cooker before and wanted to see if this product suits my needs before I committed to something expensive. So far I am happy with results. I get my food cooked evenly, nothing sticks or burns to the bottom and the flavours are great. Ideally, I need something bigger for my family, however, this is a great entry-level product to try and use.
I had never had a slow cooker before but hearing and seeing so many people using them I decided to try one. As I wasn't sure if I would use it very often I didn't want to buy an expensive one so checked them at Kmart and thought it looked ok and was a good price. Can't believe how often it is used and how easy and convenient it is. Even though it was a cheaper one it is doing a power of work. More than got my money back for it and it will probably get more work next year.
Affordable slow cooker that works well
Kmart 5L Slow Cooker is hard to ignore. It is compact, well designed, very economical, and most importantly, it is cheap. Its capacity is enough for a small family or a couple. I tried quite a few different dishes so far and had good results every time. Heat distribution is even and nothing sticks to the bottom
ITs good and works as expected
Not sure what to say about this - it works well as expected. We bought this 3 months ago and have used it few times. Cooks food very well. The price is quite affordable and i think everyone should own this item if you think you like slow cooked food.
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...
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.
This is great when busy
I'm so happy with my slow cooker , it looks so uperclass , is great for busy days too just put a nice meal on and come back home too dinner ready and all u have too do is dish it up . Easy too use and so easy too clean
Purchased to relace one that was a lot more expensive that had a 5 cent washer crumble with age, so far has been simple and good to use with great results. Temperature control could be a bit clearer, OFF. LOW. HIGH. WARM. ? WARM. Over all very happy with product, not happy with Kmart Mildura shifting checkout to centre of store, what a bright idea that is!!!
Having never owned a slow cooker before this opened up a whole world of culinary delights. The internet is full of endless creations. It certainly does the job so far as I can tell. It's great having an endless supply of stews and curries with minimal effort. It's a good price to buy one and give it a try.
I love this slow cooker. Does tend to run a little hot on low but for the price it's easy to work with. Have cooked many successful meals and will continue to do so. Will definitely buy the same product again if for any reason I need to replace the old one.
Works well, looks good
Was attracted to the look of this at first, really pretty and looks nice in the kitchen. Pretty cheap compared to other big brands, it has pretty basic controls and same for heat dial but its all you need to cook all the basics like soups and stews, even roasts as well. i love it
Well worth the investment cheap and easy to use
Product is really simple and easy to clean (Ceramic bowl is removable which makes it easy to take out)
Does the job exactly as expected Ceramic is actually a great material that stays warm for quite a long time once it heats up
Not a very expensive investment at approx $15-$20 (well worth the money) - also non stick!
Large open oval space can easily fit lamb shanks or beef ribs in the bottom of the pot
Limited functionality (expected at the price point)
Would consider it a 'heavy' (due to the Ceramic) - so suggest not storing it away in a high / low spot
Make sure you do not put the ceramic under water until it has cooled down (can crack) ...
Works well, cheap
This is my first time using a slow cooker, and for $20 I think it is excellent value for money. 5L is more than enough to cook for big groups. When such large portions aren't required, I place the food into a stainless steel bowl and put that into the slow cooker instead, which makes the cleaning a lot easier. Would definitely recommend.
Questions & Answers
Can the glass lid go in the oven?
Can you please enlarge the heat dial?
Can I buy a replacement lid for this cooker
I don't know. They are sold complete.
I would measure the diameter of the lid and go round the op shops.
For instance my steamer lid is the same size. I'd ask Kmart though.
