Does Everybody Have A Set Of These West Bend Bean Crocks Or Is It Just Mr. Modtomic? Status: Collected.

Mmmmm...beans! Loves me some Hoppin' John, pork n' beans, baked beans, red beans n' rice, three bean salad, beans n' wieners, bean dip, bean town, gettin' beaned...uhm, wait a minute...might have lost the plot a little with that...

You know what, the girlfriend picked this up YEARS ago at a church rummage sale! It's a nice

set. I've seen the electric warmer for these sets here and there but haven't picked one up yet. I

think that I need to! You'll see the large bean crock warmer all over the place, but the little

ones...they seem to be a bit harder to find.

Ain't they cute! Little bean crocks. Awwww. And a full set no less. Next New Years we are gonna

make a big ol' pot of Hoppin John in this set. I wish I could actually EAT beans on a regular

basis but...well, you know how beans work. I prefer to not subject my friends, family and

co-workers to that kinda torture.

  1. yep! they're common here, the set i snagged was still in original box. i wouldn't of noticed/bothered but i inherited my grandmothers west bend bean pot with the painted girl & boy figures on it? it's very 40's looking. i don't even use these, though i keep meaning to every time i make my famous chili. ^__^

  5. There is also a warming base with an electrical cord that goes with that set..very hard to find...like the "slow cooker" of days gone by!
