    This is the new slow cooker I bought...there were lots more expensive ones but I admit I went with this one because of the cool colors available. It doesn't have all the fancy programmable stuff, but suits my purposes. I love that vintage-looking one Kris posted but I prefer an oval shaped one--it's easier to fit a roast in.

    I bought a new Delia cooker because my last one gave out, it was one of those old round ones. Got a new oval one and it's not as big. I've got to find a larger one.

    My cooker is exactly like that ^^^^^^ fab orange one, only boring. It has a Low, High, Keep Warm, Off dial. That's it. Clever clever digital programmable gadgets, any gadgets, are usually a waste of time and money.

    I love the vintage colors they have on their website. This looks like one my mom had.

    Mine is a Rival, too, but in stainless. That one's like the one my grandma had. I didn't know they were doing the vintage colors again. I'm going to have to go look and tempt myself.

    ^^Mine is a white one with stenciled pictures of vegetables on the sides. It's ugly, but it works. Plus, it had a thermal cover so you can transport yummies to parties or potlucks. I think I got it for a potluck at work about ten years ago.

    I love the vintage one. I think I might have to get it. I love the colors.

    I got a really cool cutting board at Costco today for 15.99! It's a small bamboo cutting board that has 7 individual cutting mats. They store under the board. Very cool. $30 online.

    You may not believe this but I can't be arsed to follow the colour coded cutting mat rules. I have a good chunky wooden board which use for everything - a quick wash in hot soapy water between food types works just fine. Better for my knives too which I AM anal about.

    Well, truthfully I kinda rinse if there's a lot of blood but otherwise...... Nobody has died of gastro yet.

    Speaking of knives. If you like them super sharp, as they should be, get one of these.

    Global. Japanese. They know all about sharp knives. I have a few Global cooks knives too which ain't cheap but God they're good. They make food prep a pleasure.

    This is a little embarrassing, but my favorite cutting board is this extra large plastic one from Wal-Mart. It's indestructible, dishwasher safe, huge, and has a canal around the edges to catch blood or juices from vegetables. I just wash it in the dishwasher in between uses. We have fancy wooden cutting boards, too, but this is the one I find myself using every time.

    I own a basic crock pot brand that I got on sale at Target for $20, it does the job. My only concern is the outside gets really hot and I bought some trivets to keep it higher off the counter top. I ended up getting a Delonghi cooker, it is a little bigger in the outside and designed so the outside and bottom do not get hot. Both have ceramic inserts. The Delonghi has a timer. The thing that sucks is in the us you cannot find one to delay the start time which is really what I am after.

    i have a couple of cheap plastic boards and a wooden one. i use them pretty interchangeably and i'm not too fussy about washing in between types of food either... i do treasure my knives though. they're villeroy & boch and i got them years ago for a song and yes, they make all the difference.

    i have a cutting board like SB's, i think i bought it from crate and barrel. i like wooden cutting boards more, but they are hard to clean well (esp for raw poultry) so i don't use them.

    and i would not suggest getting a beaba, or whatever that thing is called. i made all the girls' baby food from scratch and just cooked everything myself. used either an immersion blender or a countertop blender and it went fine.
