A visit to a friend's house changed that. She was throwing out the box of her brand new crockpot so I asked her about it. It had all my requirements and a very cool feature. The crock itself could go on the stove to saute vegetables and brown the meat. The 6 quart crock was happy in the microwave, stove, oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. I think this is quite possibly the best little crock-pot I've ever met. I'm looking forward to a long relationship with my new kitchen helper the VersaWare Crock-pot.

A new Kitchen Helper - VersaWare Crock-pot
If you know me, you know I make use of my crockpot. It's like having a little servant in your kitchen. However, my current servant was beginning to show her age. The chipped lid never did fit quite right on the pot. A hairline crack had developed at the bottom of the pot. It was time to look for a replacement. I had a laundry list of requirements. I didn't want a glass lid with a plastic handle (plastic handles crack). I wanted to be able to put it on "warm" from the get go and not have to go through a cycle. I wanted it to go to "warm" right after the cooking cycle. I looked and looked for months, but never found what I liked in the stores.
