    That is what I had, DH dropped the liner first time out of the gate... ugghh. So he felt bad and got me another one. A few months later, I messed that one up. So now I am using my smaller one. I keep forgetting to order new liners.

    I made some yogurt in the smaller one the other day, and it was way too hot on warm. Killed my little guys. So I tried again, this time I put the crock liner on the warmer in the middle of my stove. Worked perfect

    This. I got a 7 qt oval one when I broke my 6 qt oval. I cook for a farmer husband, 2 teenagers, an 8 y/o and myself. If I want ANY leftovers, I fill it. My next kitchen gadget is gonna be a 8.5 qt electric pressure cooker (I can't wait!).

    Excellent! Thanks everyone for sharing! I did not get a chance to read the replies before I went out and bought one - I went with a 7 quart oval crock, so I am delighted to hear it was a good decision Again, thank you so much!
