One of the MOST Useful Kitchen Appliances EVER!

If I were a poet, I would write an Ode to the Crock Pot!
Today--and at least twice a week--I whip up two or three meals in one of my most favorite small kitchen appliances: the Crock Pot.
It's so simple and easy to throw all the ingredients into one cooking pot, plug it in, set it for hours, and forget about it until it's time to dig in at the dinner table. Plus, the house smells like someone's been cooking all day when we return home.
Recently I purchased the "Cook Once, Eat Twice Slow Cooker Recipes" cookbook at a used sale. Now THAT makes using my Crock Pot even more practical. Two different meals -- not just leftovers -- out of one cooking cycle.
Now if I could only get it to clean itself, that would make it the ultimate small kitchen appliance.
