Hi, Melissa,I happened upon your website. LOVE all the slow cooker recipes. My husband and I are in the market for a new slow cooker. We had a cheapy West Bend that definitely was not working and we'd like to invest in a new one that works much better. Is there a brand/model that you would recommend? I know there are several reviews out there on the web but I like to ask someone that actually uses theirs a lot. Thanks again :)-Monica
Hello there,I love my slow cooker and the one I have now is a Rival Crock Pot with the removable crock and a timer. For me the timer is key since I work outside the home and need it to not overcook while I am away. I have also had a Kitchenaide and I loved it, but sadly the crock cracked on me and I couldnt afford to replace it :( This is just my personal experience with what I have used. I am sure if I was to use any other brand would be the same. I am also looking to get a bigger, maybe oval one soon so I can make more in it. A slow cooker is a busy moms best friend. Hope this helps you make a choice on what to purchase. Look for what works best for you and your family. A slow cooker works best if it is at least half full so make sure the one your purchase will be used that way, in other words do not get one too big or your food will not cook properly. I always spray my crock with cooking spray to make for easy clean up. If you have anymore questions please feel free to contact me here or shoot me an email anytime...I love to help! Thanks so much for stopping by. Melissa
