I have been on a small appliance binge but desperately trying to get things under control. I've already got a Zojurushi Neuro Fuzzy electric rice cooker. Will it do everything a slow cooker/crock pot does? If so, can I just use the slow cooker recipes as written or do I need to make adjustments? If not, what brand and model of slow cooker do you recommend for a small family (e.g., do I need programmability if I'm just interested in making slowed-cooked stews and soups)? Lastly, any good "new cuisine" slow cooker cookbooks out there?
