Default A bit OT.... Crock pot users!!

SO, dh is bugging me for a Christmas list- I was wanting to put a medium size crock on it but looking at amazon they have some cool ones that you can get that have the 2-4-6qt crocks included with a warmer- have any of you tried these? That would be pretty cool but not sure if its worth the extra space in the cabinets

Also, what are the best brands?

Thanks in advance!

I just requested one of these for Christmas. I have a serious space problem in my kitchen and am trying to fix that. I have used a smaller crock for oatmeal. I just put it inside my crockpot, add a couple of inches of water and it works great. Not sure if that would work for other foods though. Generally I just make enough food for leftovers

Cyndi- that looks cool! Hmm...

Here is the one I was looking at... the crocks fit into each other so that would save some space...

I really like the idea of that being a pressure cooker and a crock pot! I could get my beans made in half the time having another pressure cooker! lol

I got a new Rival crockpot from Target a couple of years ago after I dropped my old one. I am guessing it is the big size and sometimes I fill that up. It does take up a lot of space. I never use the warming setting. No other bells and whistles on mine. I highly suggest you get one with a removable crock so it is easier to clean.

Thanks, Karen! I planned on getting the removable kind... I was thinking 4 qt would be enough for us, and still have some leftovers.. the one I have now(and mainly use for entertaining) is about 1.5qt I think... not big enough for soups and to have enough leftovers!

My Dad has a really cool one, it has 3 inner pots, small, med, and large! I think his is perfect because for just 2 you can use the small but if you have company you can use the big! I can't think of the brand name though. :P
