I've been debating getting one and a nice small one doesn't cost too much.

Welcome to DC, Guinea Pig.
i have a new large one. i also have a two person one that i use a lot. just cooking for self most of the time. i get sick of leftovers so the little one comes in handy. will hold enough chicken thighs with bbq sauce for only a couple dinners. i haven't tried to make smaller versions of chili or of beans and ham. i have ribs in the large one now, put in lots of leeks and carrots . seasoned each layer and let her rip. will be enough for two meals and one or so meal in the freezer. you will enjoy whatever you buy, i am sure.

Beef Enchiladas

4 lb roast (I usually look for a leaner cut)
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cumin seed
2 tsp. pepper
4 cups sliced onion
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cans diced green chiles
1 T. oil
(can add a sliced green pepper if you like- I always do)

Brown roast in oil. Put roast in crick pot ad pour remaining ingredients on top. I usually do dry ingredients first. Cook on high for 5 hrs, shred meat using 2 forks. Serve in tortillas with desired toppings (shredded cheese, lettuce, sour cream, enchilada sauce, etc.)

Kayelle and Mollyanne, I am with you guys. It seems to give almost a metallic taste to whatever you are cooking.

That said, I use mine for potlucks--cook whatever I am going to cook, and put it in the crockpot for keeping it hot while serving.

I noticed that there is a new one with a locking lid--why did it take so long to figure that out? (Ask me about that chili stain on the carpet in the car.)

I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
