    [​IMG]I just happened to have a pampered chef crock, the big roast ones and put it out last week to water my goat and chickens. And lo and behold the water has not fozen yet. Its 23 this morning and not even a crust of ice on top. Thought I would just pass this along...

    no its stoneware but at 18 it will freeze but not as fast...expensive, pampered chef. I just had picked it up over the summer at a yard sale. My regular plastic pan froze and cracked so just put this out and it works better but will eventually freeze. Its seems to be a deep freeze for most of us.
