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.

I had the same problem with my last Rival CP, but I have one of the newer models. I don't carry it around in the heating unit when it's full though. I take out the crock...

I also have a G.E. They are very relaible and addicting. I have not heard of making a cake in one. But, I have seen a cobbler made. I keep mine on the countertop. I use it at least once-twice a week. It is good for boiling chickens
I have been known to put frozen chicken or pieces in mine. I arrive home from work, hours later, to a seasoned de-boned chicken... and ready to use.

Nope it only goes in one direction.

I found rice pudding recipes that I love. they are easy to make in the crock pot and you come home to a nice smell in the house and a great treat. Hummmm I think its time I did some more rice pudding before the crockpot moves away and I have to buy my own.

I like to make tapioca pudding in mine. It's a snap!

Thumbs up

Oh, I've had one for years.

When Rival first introduced them back in the mid to late '70's, I bought one of theirs. It's great for slow cooking tough fiberous pot roasts and tough cuts on meat to tender juicy perfection!! Great for soups and stews as well!!

As far as flesh goes, I only eat chicken, fish and sea food. I have never really liked red meat. Hamburger or minced is ok, but you don't need a slow cooker for that. It's been 15 years since I've had an beef. But, back to the slow cooker, it really does a great job on chicken too, as well as making soups - vegie, been, chicken and rice and the like...

Almost forgot. This is one of my fav' recipies for the crock.

Crock Pot "Ghee"
or
Clairified butter

In a 4 qt crock pot add four pounds of unsalted butter. Turn on medium. Let cook for about 12 to 14 hours. Strain out the solids, and retain the nice golden yellow liquid. We us it, almost exclusively in place of butter.

Thanks for a new idea, for me...


Neither have I and I don't think I'd want to try that. I don't think it would come out right.
