The Rival Crock Pot BBQ Pit: An indoor BBQ alternative this Winter.

It has gotten to that time of the year when our thoughts turn to things done indoors, That includes cooking, where we have gone from thinking about the summer barbecue back to thinking about what will we cook in the kitchen tonight? Well just because we are back indoors that doesn't mean that we necessarily have to give up our dreams of barbecuing. Thanks to those ingenius people at Rival, there is now an indoor alternative to the traditional bbq. It is called the Rival Crock Pot BBQ Pit and it is pretty nifty as far as indoor alternative appliances go. I have a friend who owns this appliance and says it has been quite fun to use. The basic premise with the BBQ Pit is that it simulates bbq style cooking with a modification of the familiar slow cooker style that Rival has come to be known for. This is a good alternative for cooking up some pork spare ribs or chicken or steaks or whatever you want to barbeque. Of course it is not exactly the same as an authentic bbq but that is to be expected. This tactic has worked quite often with a Rival crock pot appliance for a easy to prepare meal being the main goal.

Crock-Pot replacement parts: Why not choose the more affordable alternative to buying new during uncertain economic times?

Here is something that I have noticed more and more of recently: individuals and couples going out to the mall and getting themselves Rival Crock-Pot or other brands of slowcookers. Many times that I am in a shopping mall on the weekend, wandering through a department store downtown, or even just riding the bus, I notice people carrying their newly purchased Crock Pots. What I have witnessed has really got me to thinking about whether this increased interest in home slow-cookers is really influenced by or a result of the current tough economic times, or more just a mental byproduct of my own increased awareness of the slow cooker as a legitimate meal preparation option.

I personally have doubts that it is the latter, but nevertheless, this widespread popularity of the slowcooker generally has me wondering about how the proponents of the slowcooker will cope with the preservation of their trusty appliances now that we have entered a time of uncertainty for the economy; that we are now at a point when so many are rather uncertain of where their own personal economic futures lay - whether they will have a job a few months from now, that I wonder how they will handle the important decision, whenever it should arrive, of what to do when the slow cooker stops cooking? In other words, will home cooks simply contuinue to buy a new appliance when the current one shows serious signs of its age, or will more and more devoted Crock-Pot users begin to search for more budget-minded alternatives such as shopping/hunting around for fairly priced Crock Pot replacement parts, or maybe try harder to find used slowcookers available in good shape at sensible prices? Many shrewd shoppers already know that the second hand or used goods market can often serve as a potentially great money-saving alternative to shelling out for a brand new home appliance, an appliance which, when brand new, could conceivably end up costing you much more of your hard earned dollars. Nonetheless nowhere near as many people seem to be aware that many of the likely problem areas of the crock pot can potentialy be addressed by the timely use of replacement parts. Whether it is a lid handle or a stoneware crock liner or something else, your typical crock-pot can be maintained almost indefinitely by the purchase of the relevant replacement parts when or if needed. It just seems that people have only recently started to become more aware of this reality, but - as the saying goes,'better late than never.' And really, if you have the choice, you stand to save quite a bit of money by choosing to purchase a replacement part such as a replacement crock pot liner for say $20 to $30, instead of shelling out $50 or more for a completely new crock pot.

Clearly, the current state of the economy can only help to encourage both the practises of buying second-hand and buying replacement parts whenever applicable. Even if the economy should turn itself around sooner rather than later, these two trends are ones that I do not see abating anytime soon.
