I sort of outsmarted myself. I was looking for another slow cooker and saw one on sale at Wal-Mart, so I bought it. It was only $3 more than a smaller one. But when I got it home, I discovered that the overlap of the removable pot wouldn't allow the cabinet door to close. So I have the heating element in one cabinet, and the removable ceramic pot in a deeper, over the frig cabinet, which is a little tricky to get to.

The rating was 4.6—one person said 5 were purchased for their kids as
Christmas gifts. One woman said she got one for her husband, and he loves how
much it will hold. Maybe my kids can borrow it for an OSU football party.
I'm trying this out with my frozen corned beef to make sure it works before I put the box in the garage. One think I noticed immediately is how hot the outside gets. I think you could burn yourself. I don't think the ceramic container could be removed to serve from it separate dish. Too hot.
