For information to others who are contemplating buying a slow cooker to use whilst travelling I recently purchased a Morrisons 4.5 litre slow cooker which states 240 Watts on the box and has three heat settings; High, Low and Keep Warm.
Having used it a couple of times I suspected that the 'Low' setting was not much lower heat than 'High'. I have measured the Wattage on the three settings and the meter read 285/215/72 Watts which is 100%/75%/25%. Now my meter may not be high accuracy but the percentage figures should nevertheless be fairly accurate. My conclusion is to use the 'Keep Warm' setting as a low heat cooking setting.
Has anyone taken measurements for other makes of slow cooker?

Sorry no.... but I suspect they are all similar.

Did a chicken in ours last night (over night) and will freeze it to take away with us as am not sure when daughter-in-law wanted to use it.

I generally start ours on high (sometimes pre-heat it) and use high for an hour before turning to low and then warm depending on what I am cooking and how long it has to be on.
