For the past few months I have been on the market for updating my 14 year old crock pot.
Come to find out, due to new food handling laws, almost all the new crock pots will not cook like your mom’s ole’ olive green one.
A true crock pot has a wrap around heating element to allow for a slow most steady heat. Almost all new crock pots heat from the bottom. Cooking faster at a higher heat. Almost always leaving your food burned on the bottom.
Sadly the All- Clad, the one I could not live without, fell into "heat from the bottom" category.
So my quest began, I researched and googled all types and venders of crock pots.
