    The high setting on my analog crock pot quit working. In stead of a new crock pot I thought I might get a One Pot. I know several members bought them…

    My old analog crock has two inserts a 4Q and a 2Q. 4Q is bigger than I need day in/day out (will keep if I ever need it). I have two ricers… an old style that is great for Asian dishes. The other ricer is a multifunction… It has custom controls for different types of rice, even brown rice. It has a steamer function that is great, use it all the time… It has a slow cook function but absolutely no controls for it.

    Any recommendations on a OnePot… size, type, brand?

    We have a 6 quart InstaPot. It's really an incredible kitchen device. However as each month passes since we bought it, we find ourselves using the standard 6 quart slow cooker more and more and the InstaPot less and less. In fact I don't think it has come out of the cupboard since last spring. It cooks fast and produces good food, but set up and clean up is more of chore than it is with a crock pot. Plus the great benefit is their ability to cook fast, but if you're not in a hurry then it's not really much of a benefit.

    We also have an instant pot.
    It will do everything a crockpot will do plus more.
    We use it for pressure cooking mostly but it is a good slow cooker.

    I have an insta pot but haven't done much with it. Just some baked potatoes and rice.
