Do you use only one brand of crockpot or do you have many different brands in your cabinets? I happen to have many different brands...Rivals and Hamilton Beach. So which do I like better?
Well...Hazel was a Rival Brand and she lasted a long, long, long time...so over the years, I have been very fond of Rival. I have always asked for Rival crock pots for gifts, and have always purchased that brand for myself.
But I started noticing that the Rivals were starting to break, even the newer ones. The glass lids would be cracked and sometimes they were even shattered. Which would ruin our dinner, etc.
I even had one Rival crock pot where the handles came off, and the temperature knob fell off within 2 months of getting the slow cooker.
So little-by-little, I started purchasing and asking for Hamilton Beach slow cookers and crock pots and have found that they are very well made.
George has been a very nice replacement for Hazel (of course there will never be another Hazel, but...)
So I guess, my final answer would be that I prefer Hamilton Beach crock pots over Rival crockpots..
What about you? What is your favorite brand of crockpot?
Happy Slow Cooking! Hugs...
