I love risotto and was excited about trying this one since it was in the slow cooker. I was not expecting it to have the same creamy texture as one cooked on the stove top, but, was still intrigued to give it a try. The plus side was that the flavor was wonderful! You could taste a perfect blend of garlic, white wine, & parmesan cheese. I would give the flavor five stars. The downside for us was the texture. We did not care for the texture at all. I kept checking it to be sure it did not overcook. It seemed to be the perfect texture, but, had not absorbed the liquid and was still runny. I cooked until the liquid was just absorbed - about 2 hours. The rice was very mushy. It was so mushy it seemed more like mashed potatoes. I would rate the texture one star. Although the flavor was a big hit, I don't plan on making it again.
