Big Green Egg of slow cookers...with cast aluminum insert so you can sear meat, then slow cook it. All in the same pot.

Yes, I have one. My girls gave it to me last Christmas.
I gave one to my wife for Christmas. You could just do the high heat stuff in a Dutch oven, use a regular slow-cooker for the slow stuff, and save bagloads of $$$, but having an all-in-one is pretty nice in practice.

That photo looks like Thomas Keller's cassoulet recipe he made for that cooker. It's very good.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

Love me some cassoulet. And red wine, of course.

FYI instapot for 100 via Amazon bucks does slow cooking, pressure cooking, rice cooker etc.

I use the instapot more than my slow cooker now.

mexi style pulled chicken and mexi style/barbacoa pulled beef is mostly what I make.

the local supermarket had some blade roast (from the shoulder area) that was dirt cheap and easily trimmed, and I made a bunch.

for those interested in chicken but hate dry, sub in half boneless, skinless chicken thigh, and the meat is much more palatable.

Instapot = pressure cooker?

Chop/blender up a 7 oz. can and add to crock pot chili for a warm & smoky burn. Transformative. And not in the Obama way.

Holy Crappolo there Johno. That's a shitpile of chipoltes in one dish. Four or five of those guys, minced, are hot enough for me.

Some like it hot.


My first recipe with these peppers called for two 7 oz. cans in a crockpot of chili. It was pretty warm, even for me.

A few months back I found a brisket in the cheap meat section and gave this recipe a go. It was delicious and couldn't be easier.

Made stock last night. Acme had some marrow bones and I had a chicken and the last of the frozen turkey carcass. Peel from leeks onions carrot celery in there as well. Add a bunch of salt and butter and it is great super hot.

Great to deglaze pans with and to make oatmeal and rice etc etc

Have an Instantpot and like it. FWIW, the Breville gets better reviews: https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles ... gift-guide
I haven't tried it, so not sure it's worth the extra $180.

I had the fancier Breville (they have two models) for a minute before I returned it - something was fucked up with the safeties so it took 30 minutes to reach pressure.

Aside from a non-stick interior, functionally it offered nothing that the Instapot doesn't have, and I'd rather have the stainless as it turns out (no worries about the dishwasher wearing at the non-stick, have never had an issue with meat sticking if I use a reasonable amount of fat).

Put 5lbs of peeled and cut potatoes in crock pot with milk, chicken stock, garlic, salt and pepper. Cooked on high 5 hours. Switched to warm. Right before dinner added butter, sour cream, and some milk. Barely needed the mixer. And little mess and mps were hot when we served them. Winner.

Aldi has a boneless pork shoulder roast that's got carnitas seasoning on it. Surprisingly good. The pork was pretty lean. The BBQ isn't as good seasoning wise but still not bad.
