    My reasons on not including a wok in my equipment list I've already enumerated a few times here, so I'll leave it at that. :)

    I do most of my braising etc in the oven, too, and for similar reasons, but slow cookers are still in my list for one great reason: you can leave them to cook while you're at work, or overnight, unattended. Yes, you can braise that way, but I don't like to do that unattended. I like to have a peek to make sure there's enough liquid etc.

      a necessity -- nothing better than coming home and knowing that dinner is just about ready. If you're doing a good soup or chili, the longer you can simmer it the better, and you often don't want to leave an actual stove unattended that long (plus a slow cooker, IIRC, uses less power/energy than a stove). And the apartment smells so good when I'm using the slow cooker. (I should do a split pea soup this week...)
