I had set my large, new crock from the crockpot given to me outdoors on the bottom step of the porch. When I heard a noise outside Saturday night, I looked out the door and saw nothing amiss. Sunday afternoon, I found the crock broken. Bummer. I suppose a nosy cat knocked it off the bottom step.
In the past I have seen many crocks at thrift stores, but cannot go there to search.
I'll trade you an umbrella for a crock!
Have you found the crocks are easily broken? Do animals ever bother food dishes if you set them outdoors?
