MY Rival 7 Quart Oval Crock-Pot is a true help in my kitchen. I can easily cook 2 single chickens or a small turkey and make enough Sweet & sour meatballs to please a crowd of 40. The crock is oval shaped,large and not as easy to handle as my smaller Pots but the food capacity is a wonderful help in preparing meals ahead of time. Now instead of cooking for 1 night at a time I can cook for 2 or 3 meals at once and freeze the rest for a quick meal later in the week. It has 3 settings, low, high and warm. I would have loved a timer on it but I was really looking at the price style and size when I bought it. It was extremely reasonable in price and is a maroon red color which accents my kitchen perfectly. When being invited out, I can cook up a huge crock of food and it travels with me! It came with a carry case for ease of trasport and I was easily able to strap it into a seat-belt so it would not move around. At Thanksgiving I was able to make an extra turkey breast which turned out juicy and golden brown. I am extremely happy with my crock-Pot and recommend it highly to everyone whether you need to make several meals at one, use it for pot-lucks, or parties, or you just need to make a casserole for your family for dinner.
