OOOOHHHHKKKKAAAYYYYY....I found the crockpot...and I purchased one! Ha! I needed a new one, anyway, and this stovetop to crock deal is awesome! The versaware one is the one I bought, and it is made by Rival. Very cool. Thanks for the links! :)Michelle

Jenn-that type of crockpot sounds great. I have a great crockpot with the removable ceramic covered pot thing. I usually just make a crockpot meal once maybe twice a week. Our tastes and my mood changes so it just depends, sometimes I use my crockpot 4 times a week and sometime not at all but usually at least twice, like I said it just depends. emoticon

Loupy-I do that sometimes too. I love roast.

I usually make something easy on Sundays after church like quick homemade chicken noodle soup or something baked like prok chops or chicken or maybe fish sticks or grilled cheese sandwhiches, just depends what I have on hand. After I have lunch cooking, I'll put something in the crockpot for dinner like chicken w/ lemon pepper marinade,roast w/ veggies and spices, stew, or any number of things.

On Sundays, I like to put in a rump roast before going to church. I put in the roast, cover it with beef broth, salt and pepper (optional) and put on high. Go off to church. Depending on how big the roast, I can sometimes turn down the pot to low. Then a couple of hours before dinner I put in potatoes and carrots and turn up to high. Or...I just let it cook and then cook noodles in the broth. The meat falls apart and is delicious. The beef and noodle dish is wonderful. Add a salad and you have a great meal.
Hope this helps.

The crockpot is a great idea. Great for cooking those large batches for freezing portions. Can you make desserts in a crockpot?

I just got my Crockpot, but my plan is to use it on Sundays. I wanted it because I like to take chicken dishes (or sometimes soups) to work for lunch, but I was finding that it was such a hassle to bake or grill the chicken the night before. Then when I reheated in the microwave at lunch the next day, the chicken would get super dried out. With the crockpot, the meat is so moist that it doesn't dry out.

So, yeah, I guess that is the long way to answer the question. LOL.

No regrets,
I dident see the post you are talking about but I have a rivel slow cooker that has a metal pot that sits on a hot plate type of base. Rival has not made them for along time the only place to get them is flee markets ect.I love mine but I have seen a pot at walmart that has a crock bowl and is on a base. I think you could put that in the oven to brown food. Kay N

I use my crockpot on Sundays very frequently. I put it on before church about 10 AM and when we get home about 2 pm The wonderful aroma of cooked dinner is greeting us at the door.
This Sunday I will probably make the rotisserie crock pot chicken.

I can do all things through

I have looked all over online, and I cannot find the crock pot you are talking about that goes from stove top to crock. I love the idea! That's awesome...less clean-up! So, I looked on Rival's website, and it doesn't show anything like that. Does anyone know who else might make this type of crock pot?

we go in cycles here. We just changed our meeting time for church and now go from 1-4 in the afternoon so this is when I will fall back into the habit of using the crockpot every Sunday. . . I have plenty of time in the morning to get it started and by the time we get home at 4:30 or so, the kids are starving so we want to eat right away. So, time to dust off my crockpot recipes and get with the program again!

I usually like to do my "fancy" cooking on Sunday, where I can play with it all day.

I use my crock pot 2-3 times a week, for the daily stuff. Just put it in there and forget it. Hardly qualifies as cooking.

I know most of you crockpot meals a few times a week, but I usually do a once a week thing on Sundays. There are only 2 of us, so I like to do a stew or soup. The left overs are then used for lunches for a few more days.

For Christmas my sister-in-law got me the rival crockpot with the skillet so I can prepare cook my chicken in it on the stovetop and then move it over to the crockpot part and finish the cooking in there. Sadly with moving I haven't been able to use it yet, but I am thinking this Sunday I will be able to get it out and try it out :)

So anyways, do most of you plan a big crockpot meal for Sundays?
