I have an old crockpot that belonged to my grandmother. She purchased it new in the 1970s. I still use it a lot to make stews, roasts, and chili during the winter in Montana. To me, it's priceless. I have a lot of memories of my grandmother using it when I was young. The crockpot may not be worth a ton of money, but it's something I couldn't live without.

These bring good money on the resale market with collectors.
