preprogrammable slow cookers

I am wondering whether to splash out on one of these or just go for a bog standard ordinary one. I will only be cooking vegetarian stuff in it, and most of the recipes sugggest 4-5 hours - I am usually out for 10 hours - which is why I thought a preprgrammable one might be a good idea.
Does anyone have one/think it worth it?

I've never had a reprogrammable one and got rid of my ordinary one some time ago, so I'm afraid I can't be of any help there!
As a vegetarian I didn't use mine much, so I am interested to know what sort of vegetarian food you are thinking of cooking.
I used to find vegs. went too mushy, but maybe good for soups? I'd be interested in your ideas.

slow cookers

I have ordered a vegetarian slow cook book. I do have a conventional one which I have made casseroles in. Medieterranean type ones with aubergine which benefits from long cooking times, and a root veg one with dumplings.
I took it to my house in France there last winter and left it there intending to buy one for England too, so I haven't used it much. Could be a white elephant, but I have a lot of amazon vouchers so... I'll let you know when I've got one of whatever variety and experimented.

Thanks for that, RachelF.
I'll be interested to hear how you go.

pre-programmable slow cookers

How about using a timer switch? I mean the ones you use to set your lights to come on and go off at particular times. I use one of these with my slow cooker as I could also be out for long hours and it means the food is ready and hasn't been cooking for longer than necessary.
