    The interesting thing (having fun here) is I actually took a picture of it to send to one of my friends before the tragedy having no idea this would be the last time we would work together...

    With all that said I need a new Crock-Pot and I am looking for suggestions here. The Crock-Pot is probably my favorite way to prepare food because of the ease and the quantity it produces.

    Suggestions?
    I'm curious as to what you are cooking. My initial thought is heartburn. (Peppers don't usually agree with me.)

    Peppers, onions, mushrooms, asparagus, potatoes, celery, carrots, and turkey sausage.

    It is amazing!

    Sounds good, but I'd have to cut way back on the peppers.

    I froze half of it and just finished about my 6th meal of it for breakfast.

    The good thing is the peppers are big enough that you can pick them out/pick around them.

    You need to use crock pot liners when you cook. You will thank me later. Makes the cleaning of them so easy.

    This was a life changer when I learned about these.

    I know, right. It’s crazy they were not made much earlier.

    Whatever you go with (and I echo the InstaPot recommendations), for the love of all that is holy, don't contaminate your culinary creations with a cubic yard of celery.

    I love my instapot. I have an off brand but it makes the best ribs. Someone earlier mentioned how tender they are and I agree.

    I also make an incredible Parmesan chicken. So easy and so good.

    Two questions:

    1. Is your Parmesan Chicken the same as Chicken Parm?

    2. If so, please PM me the recipe and instructions.

    Thanks.

    I can't believe you didn't mention the asparagus.

    The foodi is a step above the Instant pot in my opinion due to the air fryer and crisper, it works great for frozen foods, salmon, etc. Its likely the most universal cooker I've used.

    I dunno how it stands up to the instant pot as far as reliability but everything else I've had from Ninja has worked flawlessly with the exception of a coffee pot. But after a quick phone call with customer support the issue with the coffee pot was user error hah.

    Opposite for me. I'd change them out with Hungarian peppers.

    I’m surprised @mcpapa hasn’t made that to where it trips the word filter violation.
