shopping advice

ok -- i need y'alls advice. but you better hurry, b/c i intend to purchase at least one of these items in the morning(monday).
--- first up- what size crock pot do you recommend? i have a big one, but it is too big and so i never fill it more than half and the edges burn. ---also : what brand? since i'm not thrilled w/ mine i don't feel like i have to have a rival brand 'crock pot' ... i'm thinking about hamilton beach. i don't want to spend a fortune.
--- next, e broke my glasses. i bought them a year and a half ago at america's best(i think)... they were the absolute cheapest i could find n the city. this time however i think i'm going the other route. i think i'm willing to pay more to get some that are more resilient... maybe they can be twisted around w/ out breaking... who knows i may even splurge and get anti scratch or the glare free lenses. there is a lensecrafters near and i'm thinking about going there. i know that a lot of my friends are well researched in making the most of sales/ coupons... and shopping at the right places. help me out here! please! unfortunately, i am needing new glasses somewhat soon...

Hey Jane! So funny you ask... I was just reading an article in Bon Appetit about Crock Pots... they recommend two different ones: the 3-in-one Slow Cooker by Hamilton Beach and the 6 1/2 quart Slow Cooker by Cuisinart. The 3-in-one has different size bowls, too! I guess these are probably a little expensive, but since I just read it, I thought I'd share it with you!

Hi Jane! Just in case you haven't bought your crock pot yet... Jim was just helping the Winters move today and came home with a never been used crock pot that they were giving away. I like ours just fine, so I'm probably going to take this one to Goodwill if you don't want it. It's a
white West Bend 3 1/2 quart. Just let me know if you're interested!
