I love the invention of the crock pot! I bought mine at Costco and use it, some weeks, daily. Especially in the winter, not so much in the summer. I have a wonderful big white Costco Crock pot and have wanted for several years to buy a second one for winter to make two entrees. I found this brand new NEVER been used for 4.99 at the Good Will today. Thank You thank You Thank You!!!!
