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.
