    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.
  8. 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.
