    i love crock-pots i really do but mine is pretty much on its last leg (literally). when me and my husband got married and got our first house my mother gave me her old crock-pot and when i say old i mean it. its one of those big bulky ones that has the weird 70's style print and no removable inside. and well after 5 years i think its about dead. the legs are falling off the bottom so its leaning side ways and every thing lol so i am in the market for a knew one my question is what is the best brand of crock-pots? i don't want to spend an arm and a leg but i want a pretty big one and i want it to last a very long time cause i use my crock-pot at least once or twice a week

    Personally I recommend staying away from the Rival brand Crock-PotŪ's since they run way too hot for the slow cooking you are used to.

    I prefer the Hamilton Beach slow cookers since the prices are good, but there are others out there if you want some fancy features, including roasters that are also slow cookers.

    If you want the versatility of cooking small quantities at times and also have the ability to handle a large group, consider the Hamilton Beach 3-in-1 slow cooker which actually has three different size inserts. The only complaint I've heard is forgetting to throw the switch for the size of insert and ending up cooking at the wrong temperatures.

    I agree, I will not buy the Crock-Pot by Rival, it's too hot. Based on another thread in one of the community forums, I purchased a Faberware FSSC500, and am very pleased with it. I wasn't sure about it being round instead of oblong, but that hasn't been an issue at all.
