This isn’t a crock pot

So, um, I have a small crock pot problem. Namely, that I love them. I own three. I am constantly lusting after more. I am a crock pot addict! (Hey, don’t knock it; it makes entertaining really easy, from buffet parties to managing Thanksgiving dinner without needing to rotate different dishes through the oven.)

But, see, this Rival 17-quart roaster with bonus buffet insert that’s currently available at Meijer for $22 (54% off!) isn’t technically a crock pot, so I could totally buy that without being accused of overdoing the crock pot thing. Maybe.

  1. So if one of my family members said they wanted a crock pot for a gift, would this work for that?

  2. It does NOT cook like a crockpot. More like a portable oven. I LOVE my roasters (I have 2) and I LOVE my crock pots! They are both handy and extremely helpful when serving a crowd of people but serve some different needs.

  3. Oooh, I so can’t justify this right now, but I’m loving it! Hopefully it’ll come around again sometime…

  4. I would get a real crock pot for the person asking for one, Bethany. As Christine said, this isn’t quite the same.

  5. She who hesitates….misses the deal. Sigh.

  6. I am so addicted to my crock pots! It’s nice to know I’m not the only one : )
    I asked hubby for one of these for Christmas, so I think I’ll pas this on to him as a hint.

  7. Darn, all gone. So what does a roaster do? Just meats? What would one cook in this other than a turkey?
