Re: [slowcooker] Re: recipes using canned pork
- I realize he wasn't referring to Spam. I assumed it was a generic type of Spam. Before I retired, many of my clients received food boxes that included canned pork that was much like Spam. I helped some of them adapt pork recipes they already used to the canned pork. My point was that if it was a generic type of Spam, it could be used in the same way. Sorry if I wasn't clear about that.

Subject: [slowcooker] Nescos as slow cookers?
I just found out the Nesco roasters have their heating elements on the
sides, which removes my main objection to them. I had thot they only
heated from the bottom. I like the manual temp control which solves the
problem of the newer crockpots cooking too hot. Sale prices aren't that
bad either. But I can't tell if the standard insert (the 'cookwell' they
call it) is metal or not. One model is nonstick, which I don't think
would apply to a normal crockpot-type ceramic insert, but the
replacement cookwell does mention a 'traditional porcelain cookwell'.
Does anyone here use Nesco roasters as slow cookers?

- I had a small Nesco (it held one 3-4 pound chicken), and I used it all the
time as a crockpot. It had a nonstick insert that was metal, not aluminum but
I don't know what metal it is. The insert sat in a porcelain lined cookwell,
that you could not use without the insert. It lasted me about 15 years. I
loved its versatility.
