By now you likely have a slow cooker. I love them I just picked up one for a wedding present. I would say anyone looking for one should get a larger one and one with a timmer. the one I just got had 2 highs and 2 low temps and has a timmer. I am thinking I will get one of these next. this way you can turn it off after 8 hours even if you know you might not be home for 10 hours. I often go out for 4 hours and end up comming home late at night. The one I got was also 6qts. I would likely get 4qt if I could get one with a timmer. IF you got one all ready I sure hope your using it. they are sure great ot have and big time savers.

I bought a large one that has a timer and 2 heat settings. I wanted one which would turn itself off and it only cost $10 more than the one without the timer. Dad got the same one and loves it too. I am a big fan of them now and like trying out new recipes.

ArticKatt, A crock pot is my favorite wedding gift to get for someone. I guess because I know how valuable they are. Sometimes I will hear people say. I have had a crock pot for years and never have used it. Perhaps they just do not know how great they are to use. If they would ever get started I know they would wonder what took them so long. I do not have one with the timer. That does sound like a wonderful idea.

if someone said that to me about never having used thier crock pot I would find a cookbook for them or at the least print off a few recipes from the internet and put them in a folder for them. I think a lot of people have them and are just not sure what to do with them. You can do all kinds of stuff and there is no stew that is not better from having been cooked in a slow cooker.

I'm pre-cooking pork ribs, that will later be put on the barbicue, in mine right now.

My only problem with the crock pot, the handles on the heating unit are too flimsy. I broke a perfectly good crock pot when the carrying handle broke, and the whole thing dumped a batch of chicken soup onto my living room carpet. the ceramic insert shattered on the floor. I had made the soup for a pot-luck. I wasn't happy. That one was made by Rival.

I now have a G.E. slow cooker. And the handle has broken on that one too, but I was careful with it and didn't spill anything. I still use it.

Short of that, I like that on mine I can set it to cook on high or low for a particular amount of time (in 30 minute increments) and once it hits that time it switches to a warming mode.
Can you make it switch in both directions, high to low as well as low to high, for instance?

jkath;

I've never seen a cake recipe done in a slow cooker. I suppose one could do a quick bread in it too?

Thanks for a new idea, for me...

This is pretty much what we do most of the time. I put the bones and skin back in the broth and let it simmer all day, or the next day usually, as we usually have the original chicken the night before. It works out fine...
