"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Kitchen 101: Cooking lessons gone wrong

13 yr olds take you literally. Remember that. If you tell them to drop something in the crock pot, they will DROP it in...even if it's 6 lbs of frozen roast. 6 lbs of roast + a ceramic crock pot liner = disaster

When you can see through the bottom of your crock pot
and the interior of the heating portion looks like this
it is time to change your cooking plans and to go shopping for a new crockpot.

oops! Yeah, they takes things literally so be careful what you tell them to do. Hope you get a crockpot you can have for many, many years to come ;)

Oh no! I will admit that I'm laughing - not at you or your poor crockpot - but at the way kids take things so literally. I confess, I love it -- though maybe I won't when something like this happens to me?!

That said, you get to go shopping for a new crockpot! Hope you'll post a picture of the new one - love some of the ones out there now.

Oh no!

My husband was washing our 2/3 year old crockpot and it slipped out of his hand, landed on his foot and broke. When he told me the news I didn't ask about his foot, I was so sad that my crockpot broke - I loved everything about it. I have to go buy a new one still, yet, I haven't. Definitely post what you get because it might get the ball moving for me.
