User Review( votes)
The Crock Pot 2.4l slow cooker fell in to our laps at a bargain basement price due to having a superficial scratch on the exterior. There was no way in the world this defect would affect the performance of the cooker, so it was purchased and soon tested!
On mains hook up, the slow cooker draws a maximum of 180 watts, so less than one ampere. The cooking/heat setting can be set at low or high. Based on the information taken from the Alde load monitor, it appears that the low setting is about 90 watts. These figures are roughly 15 and 7.5 amps if using only a twelve volt supply. Note that the Crock Pot 2.4l slow cooker is mains only, but we have tried it through an inverter also.
The 2.4 litre capacity means this cooker is a compact size. The photo shows the slow cooker in use with a pound of steak, a pound of carrots, some onions and half pint of fluid in it. For the last hour of cooking, chopped potato pieces were added. Our casserole, which was very tasty – cooked in around five hours.
Crock Pot 2.4l slow cooker – easy to store
Where as many slow cookers are oval-shaped, the crock pot 2.4l slow cooker is circular and so takes up less storage space in the motorhome. The photo’ shows it’s size compared to a 330ml can of Coke and also a 700 ml bottle of wine.

There are some cheaper models available, but the models we saw did not have two different power settings. Furthermore, more research about the capacities of these smaller slow cookers, including the one litre and 1.5 litre variant left us feeling that these variants were simply too small.
The Crockpot website offers some recipe ideas too in addition to Crockpot sales. It is worth mentioning though, the slow cookers seem cheaper via Amazon.
