A Death in the Family (Our CrockPot)

Saturday, February 18, 2017

My crockpot has died!! This morning I put some veggies and chicken breasts in it and set it . About an hour later Geoff (my son) came in - and told me I had forgotten to turn it on. But, after checking, we found that the pot had actually died. Am so going to miss it!!

In 1973 when I moved back to Medford, my Mother-in-Law and Mom when shopping for a crock pot for me. They went to a number of stores looking for just the right one - had to be the right size and have a removable pot. I remember Mom saying they paid more for it than she really could afford - but it was just the one that Elaine wanted for me.

And now it has died! :(

So now am going to have to search for just the right replacement. Oh, I did put the pot into the oven to cook our lunch for today - and it was really good. But, not the same as it would have been.

    I've grown fond of my slow cooker as well. I have 2 and I'm looking for a 3rd. Good luck finding your next perfect slow cooker!

    So sorry for your loss. I have 3 crock pots - 2, 3 and 7 qt. I don't think I could survive without them.

    I don't use my crockpot nearly as much as I should. I always like how things turn out but it's so much chopping to get things started. Good luck finding the perfect replacement. I'd say you certainly got the use of the former one if it was purchased 40+ years ago.
