I bought a beautiful mustard yellow LC round oven a week ago on a whim. I know it's high quality, and it'll last me a lifetime and a half, but I'm starting to feel guilty that I can't justify spending the money since I already have a crockpot for all the braises and stews that I do. I know the end results are probably noticeably different, but as a student who is short on cash and time, is the crockpot so bad after all?
I know they are entirely separate issues, but I'm currently eyeing a food processor, which I can buy using the money that I get for returning the LC and I still would have money left over. Despite being a student, I love home cooking and do a lot of it, so I would like to get the most out of the money I spent on furnishing my kitchen. That said, I love the dutch oven to bits and it'll break my heart to let it go.
What do you think?
