I used to really love my crockpot though I really hate the new ones since you can't cook things all day.

I bought one of these:



Amazon Link to Electric Roaster Oven

I am hoping that I like using it as a roaster and a slow cooker.

I found some suggestions for things to try here:

Does anyone have any suggestion on what to cook in this?  Any tips?

Is there a difference between a roaster oven and a crock pot? Does the roaster oven have the same ceramic insert to cook in?

What is the major difference between the old and new one? Anyways, the picture you shared looks so nice.

I have only used one of these once, at a crazy 4th of July party I catered in Wisconsin, in which bazillions of brats were made.
I understand that your model has a ceramic insert and isn`t enameled metal, right. For me the best way to use these things (and my ceramic slow cooker) is the "labeled use" - low and slow roasting a chicken or a rack of ribs without heating up your oven is the bomb diggety. Also, roasting bones for broth..... roasting large amounts of beets so they get caramelized....
