But I love the smaller one MORE. Here it is. For $19.99, it is an awesome little thing. I prefer it to the gigantic one because every time I cook in one I want to fill it up. Then, in the big one, we couldn't possibly ever eat it all. The small one keeps me in check, plus we get 2 good meals out if it (and a lunch or two sometimes, too).
If you don't like my recommendation, then I would look for one with a timer on it... so it switches to "warm" when the cooking is over (the one I just recommended doesn't, but I adore its simplicity).
We just started doing stock in our (big) one, and making banana bread in the (small) one, and roasting a whole chicken w/o liquid in the (small) one. Chili and stew are the best, though.... soup, too....Pin It
