A pot luck is one of those items where is hard to go wrong. If you are playing by the rules, then you will find delicious things in the table spread. There is a rare occurrence when people bring things and that is not appetizing. So bring the favorite dish and share the joy. For sure there will be something you will findÂ at your liking. And if you want to be sure that the dish you bring will stand out, then the Hamilton Beach Pattern Slow Cooker is the way. These are in stores in October 2010, and will come in 2 different styles: Catalina (model 33152) and Damask (model 33153). The pot has nice features like a 5-quart stoneware insert is dishwasher safe, as is the glass lid. There is also a convenient lid rest incorporated. The lid will direct the condensation back from the pot to the handy feature. It has a nice lid latch strap if you want one worry-free travel.
