Dig this Crockpot!,
This review is from: Crock-Pot SCVP609-KLS Smart-Pot 6-Quart Oval-Shaped Slow Cooker with Little Dipper, White (Kitchen)
This crockpot is pretty big, cleans up easily, (I've never spent more than 5 or so minutes rinsing it out, I think it's some sort of special porcelain,) and it sets itself to "warm" when it's cycle is done, (a variety of hours, but I almost always use 4 hours.) It is attractive, just a simple plain white. I bought mine as a present for me and my husband and recommended it to my mother in law, and to the group home where I work. They purchased the same crockpot on my recommendation. It feeds seven or eight with no problem. And for just two, freeze your stew to have on a fall or winter night when you don't have time to cook. It would make a great wedding present or just to keep for yourself. Mine did not die, and I carry it around a lot, to family dinners, etc. In fact, it's in my car right now. This one appliance makes my life much easier. (I may even have grown a muscle from carting it around so much, it's one drawback is its weight, but I kind of like that, too, it's a very substantial crockpot.) Oh, wait, there is one other little thing to know about it: do not put its lid in the oven, the handle on top melts - a minor design flaw - it does not melt from regular use, only when exposed to heat directly. Supposedly, you may also purchase accessories for it, too, like a bread making insert or something. Although intriguing, I have not explored these options. Perhaps the little dipper is one such accessory. My particular pot came witht a custom-fitted insulated bag that velcros around the pot for carrying to dinner functions.

After re-reading my glowing review of this crock-pot, reading the other reviews and using it more often, in all good honesty I must warn everyone that is does indeed run HOT! I tend to use it most often when I am home so I can baby-sit it. I love it, but it may scorch cooking projects left for long periods unattended.
