ISO a stable slow cooker

Hello, I am looking for a new slow cooker that has 4 feet. Everyone I have looked at has 3, and they all seem tippy to me. Anyone know where to find one?

Hi Robert, welcome to DC.

Look for slow cookers that are oblong rather than round. They'll more likely have four legs.

Depends on how big your feet are.

Lol, you guys are nuts.

Geez, calculating 4 points on an elipse. This'll take me a minute (don't wait).

I've never looked at the bottom of my round rival crock pot to see how many feet it has....until now, it has 3. It must not have bothered me but I can see how it might be a little less stable that way.

According to laws of geometry 3 legs is perfectly fine to support a round pot
