Then, I'd have to say the iced tea was the most challenging part, but these new computerized crock-pots are cooking wonders.
Mwahaha

From my catering days I have 3 crockpots - different ages and sizes. I got rid of a lot of my equipment but kept all three. The last one is a 6 quart one and I can put the crock in the oven and, with a wire rack provided, on the stove to sear meat, etc. It is too large for the two of us but I make big batch items to freeze. My favourite is my Mom's good old 3 quart and it is in use a lot all year round! The other is a five quart which is great as well.

Thank you for replying... it's nice to be acknowledged.

I have a small one. It's size is for appetizers (dips, sauces, etc), but it's the perfect size to keep supper warm when I don't know the time Mark is coming home. I have a 6-qt, too, and I could place that in the oven, even though I haven't done that yet. I use that one for roasts. I still have to get a corned beef roast and have been saying that since St. Patty's Day. There was some stuff in the freezer to use up.
