Re: Please tell me about your crock pot!
I got mine from freecycle and I like the round Rival one more. My daughter actually accidentally knocked it off the counter and it broke, so I looked for another one. I don't really always follow the instructions for cooking time though, I just keep an eye on it. I've mostly done grains (brown rice, oatmeal, barley) in it, but also chicken pot pie. I have another cheaper brand, newer style, not sure what brand... but it's worked well for baked potatoes and sweet potatoes. I don't like it for other things though.
