Before we had a round one which made it a little difficult to stuff a nice roast or whole chicken in. We wanted an oval one along with one that had a touch features, was stainless steel and had a timer. After searching we decided on the Crock Pot Stainless Steel 6 Quart Countdown Oval Slow Cooker with Dipper, which we have not used to date.
I also purchased one for daughter's birthday, which just passed. She has PCOS, Polycystic ovary syndrome, which causes her to be tired along with carrying some extra weight. Trying to eat healthy has been a struggle for her, so when she said she wanted to start cooking from scratch to get healthy I knew she was setting her self up to fail. Cooking from scratch takes time, she works a lot and with PCOS I knew she would quickly go back to fast food or frozen foods. With a crock pot she can just throw whatever she wants in there set the timer, go off to work, and come home to a healthy home cooked meal.

So, all together we have gotten four meals out of eat, plus the one for tomorrow, and there will still be chicken, and broth left. Yes, we could have done the same thing in the oven, but the house would have been hotter than it already is. Plus the chicken has more flavor when done in the crock pot because it is submerged in the water and seasonings.
