Dear 100 Hour Board,
I'm thinking of asking for a crock pot for Christmas. I've never owned a crock pot before, and have only used one once or twice, so I don't really know what features I'd want in a crock pot. Do any of you have suggestions?

Make sure that it will cook your food. Therefore a plug (one that plugs into the electrical socket) and a knob on the front that will let you turn on and off the crock pot are preferable. Don't let the salesman talk you into anything less!

CC knocked out the most important feature. The only other thing that really matters is size. Frankly, I'd just go with the biggest one. It gives you room to grow, cooks just fine for one, and will last forever. I don't know if they make any crockpots without two settings (high and low), but make sure you have both.
And when you get it, make this recipe. It's a family favorite. Delicious.
