Katie, I have my Mom's old Rival and love it! DH keeps saying he will buy me one of these new fangled ones and I say no, I like what I have thank you very much!

I don't think that slow cookers of any age or make are meant to be kept on high. It is mainly for starting a dish or finishing it (ie adding flour or cornstarch to thicken it). We use crockpots on catering jobs for sauces and gravies and they have never boiled dry on low.

Yes, Laurie, these old ones are great workhorses. 'Cept I have to laugh at the colors. My original one is harvest gold. The one I bought at a yard sale is avocado green. Both definitely a sign of their date of origin.
