    I have three. icon_smile.gif

    1) An old round 2.5 quart that belonged to my father - so it's probably at least 25 years old. The liner doesn't even come out. But it works *really* well! It's a Rival.

    2) An oval 5.5 quart (or so, I'm guessing) that we got as a wedding gift 5 years ago. This one is the least useful - it heats unevenly and at too low a temperature. Another Rival.

    3) A round 6 quart that I got last month. The oldest one is tiresome to clean, the oval one doesn't cook well. This new one has proven quite useful, and cooks well at the temperature settings (warm, low, and high). Also a Rival.

    I use my crockpot(s) usually 1 to 2 times a week.

    I have three -- a 3.5 liter crockpot (from England) that I've had for years and years, but don't use much anymore because it's too small.

    I have an Israeli brand 7 liter crock, oval shaped, and we call it the bathtub! I use it constantly.

    And then I have another, identical 7 liter bathtub, for Passover use (we need completely separate dishes and pots for that holiday).

    Mine is a round Rival... 5 or 6 qt., I can't remember. icon_redface.gif

    I have found I prefer the round ones to the oval ones, though I can see where oval ones would come in handy for certain things.

    I'd really like to have a smaller one soon, too!

    I have a 2 qt. Toastmaster, a 3.5 qt. no-name brand, and a 5 qt. Rival. They all work fine. I bought the no-name brand at the local dollar store to keep in my camper, but it's actually one of my favorites.

    I have 3. A small one that is perfect for 2 people, probably 1.5 quarts or so? One that DH had when we got married 25 years ago that has had lots of use and is still going strong and then I got a new 6.5 quart for Christmas this year. It is oval and has a second crock that is divided. It also has a timer and works great! I am so blessed.

    I have a small 1.5 qt Sunbeam that I mainly use for dips. I have a 3.5 qt Rival that I've had for years and years, but I very seldom use it. My 6 qt oval Rival is the one that I use most often. I would love to have one with a timer and warmer setting on it. Maybe one day....

    I have two. The typical classic Rival, not sure of the size, but it's fairly universal. I got it at the thrift store several years ago for around $5 and it's still going strong. The liner comes out (mandatory for me!) and it's just got the two temps--hi and lo. I rarely use the hi setting, but it's handy for some things I do. I use a lamp timer for turning it on and off when I'm not at home or I'm asleep or whatever, thus saving myself oodles of $ on fancier models. icon_wink.gif

    I've got a little bitty baby one, it might be a quart or quart and a half (or liter, sorry). It has one heat setting, which is supposedly low, but because of it's size, it gets pretty hot, or a little hotter than I'd like for what I wanted it for. The lid is plastic. I bought this one on eBay and got it to make small batches of oatmeal, but it's not all that I dreamed it would be. It's supposed to be good for hot appetizer dips, etc.

    I tell you what. I was originally going to get rid of it through my freecycle group (, folks give away things they don't want anymore for free), but it seems like this might be a better place for me to get rid of it. triviakat, or someone, would you like it? I can mail it out this week or next, just in time for Super Bowl, if you're so inclined that sort of hooliganism. icon_question.gif

    Just got a Bravetti 7 Qt slow cooker. It came with a little slow cooker. I haven't used either one yet. Don't know what to make with it but I'm sure I am going to get some ideas here. bb

    I just gotta say... it's nice to see others who have multiple crockpots as I do! icon_smile.gif

    Hey Batty Boop - I got the same combo from Canadian Tire before Xmas. ($40.00 Canadian). so far I have made Crock pot Stuffing , a pot of turkey soup from the carcus of our smoked turkey and a pot roast with tiny red and white potatoes and baby carrots (2 c. beef broth, garlic, 1 c. red wine, bay leaf, and thyme). Yum, Yum, yum. Haven't used the baby pot yet - I am planning on using it for a cheese dip.

    I hate mine. Even tho it is supposed to cook in multiple temps, it only cooks on one and thats HIGH!! Can't remember the name right now, some guys name that I bought thru target.. would love to have my old Rival back. And probably will get another one soon.

    Sadly I bought it because it was "cool" looking. icon_rolleyes.gif
