RV Crock Pot Recommendations?

My wife and I recently bought our first RV and are starting to get some stuff to stock it. One thing we would like to get for it is a crock pot. The 5 quart crock pot we have at home is too big as the coach has a double sided sink. We saw a 2 quart crock pot at Walmart today which was more vertical than horizontal that would fit in the sink, but I don't think it will be big enough to feed both of us and our little girls (5, 3, and 1).

Does anyone have any recommendations on good "vertical" crock pots which fit well in RV sinks?

Thanks in advance!

--Sam

Sam,
We have a 1-quart rival crock pot we use. It will hold a 2 lb roast or 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts. Got this one at an outlet store for $10. If the two quart pot will fit in the sink, it should do the trick. Hope you have many happy times in your RV.

My two cents says set that RV kitchen up as near complete as the house kitchen as possible. Even with another 5qt. crock pot. Especially as looks like you'll be feeding 5.

At least that is the way the kitchen area is setup on my 5th wheel. Not lacking very much of anything. I'll simply improvise if I need to wash something too big for the sink, however my kitchen sink is nearly the same size as in most stick and brick houses.

After all, isn't the idea of having an RV to be able to bring the house with us wherever we may go?!

Interesting reply. Thank you. I'll take another look at the two quart because it really didn't look like it was going to hold much, but it would definitely fit in the sink. My wife thought she had seen a little larger one with the same type of "vertical" configuration (I don't know the best way to describe it since most crock pots are more "short and squat" in my view) but after we went looking couldn't find it. Of course, it's always possible that the picture made it look bigger than it actually was

That's certainly the goal but the five quart crock pot that we have just won't fit in the RV sink. It's much too wide. Do you have a suggestion on a different setup? Should we put it somewhere else?

We have a 1 qt for the RV at present and it does good. It will limit the size of things you cook. If you have room, a 2 qt would be better and try to get on with a removable pot.

Good point. Thanks, Ken. I think the 2 qt was something like $20 so even if it doesn't work for dinners, I figure we can find a use for it. If not, no huge investment lost.

OK, I am going to ask a dumb question. Why does it have to fit in the sink? I have a 5 quart and use it all the time. I sit it on a cutting board on the stove top. Used it just yesterday for a pork roast.

Many of us cook in the crockpot while traveling down the road. If you put the pot in the sink you will contain any spills or leakage if you have to do a quick stop or drastic maneuver.

If your thinking of putting it in the sink to use it while traveling remember... You'd have to run your genny to get 120 volt. If you're a week ender, cook it at home before you leave, freeze it and just reheat when you get there.

I have the largest one I could buy with removable insides! Because I love left overs ! Lol. I cook while sleeping if I do not have time during the day to. I wash I on a towel on the counter. Will not fit in the sink!

We have one of the triple pot crocks. I'm not sure what each pot holds but the three combined should hold as much as one large crock pot. It fits perfectly in the dinette drawer and if cooking something larger than one pot, we just split it up among 2 or 3 pots. Just a thought.

Not sure if this helps, but I am a firm believer in Velcro. I have rolls of the stuff in industrial strength. Why not put a strip on the counter and line the bottom of the crock pot with a strip. I doubt it will move or slide on the counter.

The Proctor-Silex 4quart slow cooker is 11" high with a dia of 10"
On a personal level I have never used a crock pot in the MH. I prepare the food at home and pack in foil pans. They heat well on the gas grill
