Thanks for the links - yes, right brand but too new! This one looks exactly like the one my mum had when I was growing up, and I convinced myself that there would be hundreds on ebay but I can't find a single one.
Better description: it's a slow cooker, the outside bit is orange plastic and the ceramic bit inside is brown. The instruction booklet calls it a Prestige Crock Pot.
She is too nice to hate me forever but she will be so disappointed. I'm cringing with the guilt right now.
SaintGeorge that is so kind; what a lovely offer. Unfortunately it is the outside bit I have broken, not the inner ceramic part. But I appreciate the offer so much.
I am such an idiot, leaving it where it could get broken.
Of course I will pay for a new one, but I have a horrible feeling that she likes the oldness of this one, and will hate anything new. Of course she will be too polite to say this because she is lovely but I Will Know, and will feel awful.
