Is it round or oval shaped, do you have both? I've been told to get an oval for large portions, and a round for smaller portions. Convenience is a factor.
Years ago, I had a huge, round one, but only used it several times for vegetarian chili, while on Deal A Meal, and for keeping some kind of beef stew warm for when people came over. It sat in it's box in our garage since the 1980's, until when we moved this July. One of the people who packed us for moving, said she would take it, she didn't care how long it had been sitting there. She was happy to take all kinds of things we had, that couldn't be taken along. Thanks for the tips and recipes that you find work for you and your husband, Sharon.

I have 2 round and 1 oval. I use the oval one when I make up bone broth and for larger cuts of meat. The smaller oval one is just right for 2 people.

Saturday's food DD

Love the talk about the slow cookers...I have had a small round one (3 quart) which has been used for years but decided I wanted a larger one in case I made something for others....then I saw the Ninja Cooking System last Christmas and fell in love with it. It's a large oval slow cooker, but it's so much more. Has three settings for stove top cooking, an oven setting and a buffet setting for keeping things warm. For slow cookery, you can brown stuff like roasts or chickens at the stove top setting, switch to slow cooking, or baking. That way you don't dirty another skillet just to brown stuff or saute before slow cooking. I love it and highly recommend it if you're thinking of getting a slow cooker. The only real downside is on the oven setting, it doesn't brown but bakes a cake so light and moist it makes you mouth water so who needs brown? For that I have the toaster oven.

It's a true down day for me...was trying to just get through with just breakfast but just had a small snack, so maybe I'll get through the rest of the dayl

coffee black, scrambled egg, 2 turkey bacon, with lc toast...didn't take pills this morning. Mozzarella stick and a beef stick with a small coleslaw...iced tea

600 kcals

Thanks for your opinions and thoughts about the crock pots, I was talking with daughter in law this evening, and she thinks we should start with a small one and see how we like it, and then work our way "up", I know they will go on sale when the holidays get closer

I have a WEST Bend slow cooker that I prefer over crock pots. Crockpots are so heavy and my slow cooker's pan you can use to brown your meat in or put it in the oven instead of cooking on the element. I think the food cooks better in the slow cooker also. It is an oval.

Just my opinion.

Ok, I thought a "slow cooker" and a "crock pot" were the same things?? Just a more modern name now??

I'm looking at perhaps finding a new gas range and oven, we had an issue where we thought there might be a leak with this one, we think it was from when the house was built, 1991, but not sure.
