Presenting the Newest Member of The Crockery

As some of you may recall, a tragic accident in recent weeks lost us the culinary company of our dear friend "Chippy" and his wife, otherwise known as my medium-sized slow cooker and lid. Today I'd like to introduce the newest member of The Crockery team, a 3-quart Hamilton Beach slow cooker, which I like to call "Hammy." (Pay no attention to the Proctor Silex label on the model in this picture: the two companies are in cahoots somehow, and I'm pretty sure that this is the same as the model I have, except for the label.) The new cooker comes with a removeable liner, a lid handle which is cool to the touch, and four settings: Off, Keep Warm, Low, and High. The Keep Warm setting is a particular blessing, as it means that one can maintain food temperature without overcooking the meal. At least, I hope that's what it means.

I've already tried out the new pot, and am happy to report that it passes muster. True, the liner is still too big to comfortably fit in the dishwasher without blocking the spray, but that's our dishwasher's fault, and we'll not be holding it against our friend Hammy. Come on, everybody, give a warm welcome to the newest member of the team!

I thought that we _would_ be holding the spray against our friend Hammy.
