Slow Cooker or Roaster Oven?

SamCurt | Aug 22, 2009 07:50 AM

Hi Chowhounds,

I need an electric cooker for slow cooking as my cooktop is so small that I can't even put two pieces of cookware on it.

Now the question is: I see on here or elsewhere that a roaster oven like Nesco can act like a slow cooker, and in the market a 6 qt. Nesco is on par with a 6 qt. slow cooker. So, are there any major difference in their cooking performance? Either way, I would mainly use them for braising and stews but not much on roasting.

Thanks for the answer!
