Old crock pots Don't you find them too large?
When I was madly making things for Christmas, rather than pickling
in a sauce jar which I kept having to take to the microwave to
reheat, my hubby went out to buy me a small crockpot. The store had a
large one that was only a couple of UKP more so he bought me that
one. I was initially miffed at having such a large vessel in which to
pickle but I’m glad now that he bought me the larger one. Not only
can I pickle multiple things at once, but I can pickle large items
with ease as well.
Yes it takes more liquid and therefore more chemical, but it doesn’t
need changing very often at all. Alternatively, if you didn’t want
to use more chemical, just pickle for more time. Most of the time I
just top up the level with water when some has evaporated away. I
switch it on in the morning to the high setting and then when it’s
hot enough, I turn it to the “Keep warm” setting for the rest of the
day. It’s one of the best purchases I’ve made.
