Crock-Pot Season

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I declare it to be Crock-Pot season! What we have here is a chicken stew with rice, chipotle chiles, and vegetables in a crock-pot that is older than I am.  I would like to deviate from the usual focus on food to the cookware.  I challenge anyone to post a pic of a working pot, cooking 'yer food, older than this one.

Here's one that doesn't even have an on/off or heat setting. You just plug it in & it's on. The insert doesn't come out either.


I used it at the gathering to keep my sauce hot. It works perfectly.

Al, you may be the winner there that thing is ancient!  These things do not stop working.  I didn't know they had removable stoneware in those old ones; that's the first I've seen African.

The older simple off/low/high setting crock pots work so much better than these fancy digital automatic contraptions they sell now.

I love cooking in the crock pot. We have a really old one at our farm/hunting shack that is one of those non-removable stones and I hate that thing. Such a pain in the butt to clean. We finally went to Walmart and got two new ones for cheap. But you are right they don't ever quit working.

Al, that is a classic, kudos!


Don't get me started on "digital", I just threw out a "digital" toaster.  Toast wouldn't pop up, couldn't stop the damn thing without unplugging it.  I don't need my toaster to be digital, for crying out loud.

Rival still makes "manual" pots.  There are far more models on their web site to choose from.  If I ever want to switch up to a removable stoneware model I would buy one of those manual ones.

Finally sold-out and bought one of those new-fangled crock-pots with the removable stoneware.  I gotta say it's pretty nice.  Okay I also wanted a slightly larger one too.
