I have 3 slow cookers, one Rival and two Hamilton Beach. The Hamilton Beach are awesome, but the Rival which I have had for 10+ years has always run too hot so I only use it for short cook times. I am partial to Hamilton Beach!
I had all 3 going for Thanksgiving dinner this year, the turkey came out awesome, so moist. Did dressing and a creamed corn in the other two.
Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...
