What brand of crockpot do you have? (I need to buy a new one)

I'm making soup in the crockpot and it started leaking so I need to buy a new one. What brand do you have and do you like it? Or do you know what the best brands are?

  • I have two Rival crockpots, one 5 qt. and one 2 qt. The 5 qt. I've had for almost 20 years and it still works as well as the day I bought it. The 2 qt. I just bought last year to use for dips & sauces.

    That's the one I have.  I absolutely LOVE it.  I would stay away from Rival (the original CrockPot brand).  They tend to get too hot, even on low.

  • I have a 6 quart Rival, and while I like it because it cooks faster (hotter), it does cook faster and I have to adjust the recipe times accordingly. If I had to get another one, I think I'd get a Hamilton Beach.

  • I have a Rival. I like it well enough, but would choose another brand when I need a new one. I found out it has hot spots by making bread pudding ~ and it's a little big for our shrinking family :)

  • I have a Cooks one that I love. It is digital and programmable and was not very expensive. It has been going for a few years and hopefully for a few more.

  • I have the one above me. I also have an old Rival my father gave us. So old, in fact, that it was made in the USA.

  • Hamilton Beach with the 3 bowl (different sizes) inserts.
