I bought 4 of these on sale for $9.99 each and was planning on using 1 in our camper and gifting the other 3. Well it's so perfect that I ended up keeping 2 of them so far and I debated about keeping all 4 of them for myself, I won't but I can dream. They are perfect for people trying to eat normal portion sizes or don't want things to mix/touch for picky people. I could easily fit 4 giant chicken breasts in one. Perfect size for slow cooker desserts too! They don't take up a lot of room in the dish washer either. What a great Crock Pot product. Crock pot liners do swim in this product, just know you will have extra sticking out the top---they still work with it. They were spot on with the black too.
