After living in the dorms for a bit I am loving the feeling of semi-independence. However I am getting tired of paying too much for too little food that may or may not taste good. I am thinking of getting a crock pot in my room and basically cooking a lot of my own meals, making trips to grocery stores, etc. Which model should I look into? Nothing too small, but nothing too big. I think a 3-4 quart size would suit me well so I can share with roommates and neighbors. Also I would like it fairly cheap, between $20-30. What brands should I look into? After briefly looking through Amazon reviews it seems like Rival is a fairly cheap but not durable brand. I would also prefer something that is programmable or at least will turn off to the "warm" setting after it's done cooking. So far this model looks good to me and I am pretty sure I saw it for cheaper in the store. I would like something that requires minimal hassle that will fit around my class schedules. Basically, throw stuff in, turn it on in the morning, come back in the evening for a nice meal. Any suggestions? Personal advice or experiences? I would love to be able to move out next year and still use this crock pot to cook foods.
