I am disabled and my cheap crockpot quit working after too much use, I guess. This new Crockpot from Overstock was the best kitchen purchase I have ever made. I use it almost every day and it does just what it promised. If my husband is late coming home from work it continues to keep food warm for up to 6 hours. I cannot wait to start making winter soups in it. There were some great recipes that came with it and I cannot wait to try them.I would recommend this to anyone who works, or anyone who doesn't mind leftovers the next day.
