The one on the way is an oval. Wife says it'll fit roasts better i guess. The old one was round. Tried to talk her into an instapot, guys at work swear by them. But there's a lot to be said for an Off/Low/High switch lol.

Rival Crock-Pot from ~1975, still have the owners manual and a hardback copy of the Rival Crock-Pot Cooking book.

I just used it two days ago - works perfectly. I use those crock-pot liner bags now instead of putting food directly into the crock-pot, saves wear and tear from scrubbing and lessens the risk of being dropped into the sink while washing it.

Crock pot takes a back seat to pressure cooker these days.

I live at work.

Also...I dont have to clean my oven every time I use it and put it back in the cupboard.

I don't.

You surely clean whatever pot or pan you put the food into to cook in the oven.

Got one from the mid 90s that I packed off to college. Still works, but we dont use it much because the crock isn't removable. The newer ones with removable crocks are much easier to clean.

Word of advice

Old ladies at church will steal your glass lids.

They either broke theirs over the years or have models with plastic lids.

I’ve lost one at a Wild Game pot luck and another at a business meeting.

BOLO, they come in with foil over their cookers, beware for they are a clever foe.

Yup. Crock pot condoms are great.

It is packed away somewhere and I can't remember. It's definitely round, non-removable crock.

That's the one I rarely use too.
