Those get way too hot. If you want genuine crockpot cooking (i.e. SLOW cooking), you need to get your hands on the older ceramic style. Look on craigslist - here people are selling the vintage Rival crockpots for around $5. They think that because these are from the 70s and 80s, they're worth nothing!
Do you mean there's stainless steel in the bigger, heater-element part and then the insert is ceramic? If so, yes that's what I have.

It's a Rival. I'm not a fan, but have read so many different things from different people about different styles (or different things about the same styles) that I just don't know what to try next. I don't want to waste my money, you know?
