Can I use it here? Maybe I'll get get thing cooked slower, which would be preferable.
Unless it's dual voltage or you plan on using a transformer no, but the good news is you can buy a new slow cooker for about $20. Apparently instant pots are the new rage, basically an electric pressure cooker. I see one in my future, must have ALL the gadgets...

OOOh thanks for that.
I hadn't heard of instant pots before but I'm very happy you mentioned them before I went out and bought another slow cooker.
Looks magic!

We visited Costco at the weekend. I had never got around to it in the UK, largely because we never had the space to buy in bulk. Now we do!
To say overwhelmed is an understatement. We very much underprepared, and
we discovered our new tv $200 cheaper than it was in Best Buy two weeks ago
I'll be sure to look for the slow cooked lamb next time. We picked up some nice Tuscan marinated pork steaks we have yet to try. Atleast, as Mr Jazz observed, we won't be running out of toilet roll any time soon.

Thank you Badgeb21 - we enjoyed a much nicer bolognese made with mince from Wholefoods. Very nice, in fact.

Check that this doesn't fall under Best Buy's price match guarantee. If it was only two weeks ago you can either return your TV and get the cheaper one, or see if they will match that price and give you a refund.

Thanks for that Nutmegger. I'll investigate
