    Hello,

    I just got a 5 qt Rival crock pot and after quickly reading instructions and seeing some of the hints in the Rival site, I am wondering if I got the right pot?! We are 3 in our home, does the 5 qt cannot be use with recipes for 3 or 4 quarts? Am I always going to have to cook a lot? or if I reduce the yield for a recipe geared for 5 qt, can I still use this pot? I was SO excited when I got it, now I do not know. Do you all have one pot for each size? I pray not. icon_confused.gif

    Your advise and assistance in straighten me up about this matter will be very much appreciated. I want to have fun with this product and I need you all to help me. Thanks in advance. icon_smile.gif

    Hiya ChefHa! Welcome to Zaar. icon_smile.gif

    I also have a large crockpot and cook for just hubby and myself as well. I haven't had any problems using it for smaller recipes.

    Best of luck with your new toy. icon_biggrin.gif

    Can either of you share what larger crock pot you have? I would like one that can do big and small meals, but I am getting input that larger crock's dont do smaller meals well?

    I live in the UK so I don't think I would be able to help you with a specific brand. I have a UK brand called Morphy Richards and it's 5 quarts.

    The only tip I could give is that it does take time to 'know' your appliance. When I replaced my old one with the one I have now I couldn't believe how much hotter it was. On the old one I had to use a 'high' just to get a dinner done in 8 hours!
