    That is a good point Caroline, when you purchase always make sure the lids sits inside the rim of the insert I have seen a some that don't, some have a stainless rim on the lid the last one I bought did and I just cut it off

    I am on my second within a year, the glass on the lid of the first all blew out one day whilst it was on, very disconcerting!
    I just don't think things are generally made very well these days.

    Think i'm going to have to buy a new one i can't understand how alum as well as water ended up in the metal casing (There's a thick rim round the lid). I've got it heating up now, put more alum into the water and it's still taking longer than 15 mins to start on my metal. Caroline do you have a link to the new alum you bought. Mine works but only once it's steaming.

    I bought a 1.5L Daewoo from Robert Dyas for 12.00 and it ticks all the boxes. Ian

    I’ll have a look back and see if I can find the first brand I bought. I haven’t made in a while as have been a bit poorly but I thought this new stuff was really slow as well. As Dennis said it should only take a couple of minutes but that’s the problems buying all this as foodstuff on amazon!

    The other point is that you only have to inadvertently spill some inside when you changing the batch and it will slowly eat away and cause damage

    Yes that's right alum solution should be steaming to work well. It might evaporate during a long session and need topping up with hot water.Dennis.

    That suggests my slow cooker is heating it up too slow.
