The Rival Crock-Plate (1977)

The Rival Crock-Plate multi-purpose cooker has a high-fired stoneware plate that does the work of several appliances.

You can panbroil, bake, poach, steam, and fry. Make everything taste good, from meat and potatoes to fancy desserts.

The cooking plate’s high, even heat sears foods quickly without sticking and seals in juices for irresistible flavor. The stoneware resists scratching and needs no special care or utensils.

You cook on the plate — a whole meal at once. Serve on the plate. And wash just one plate instead of all those pots and pans. Because Rival knows you love to cook, but hate to clean up.

  • Make four crepes at once. Omelets, too.
  • Stir-fry Oriental foods and ethnic treats.
  • Cook bacon, eggs, and pancakes.
  • Party foods. Hot hors d’ouevres.

Be more of a cook and less of a dishwasher.

  1. I still have mine and I cooked a lot of stuff on it. For a while we didn’t have a stove so between my crock plate, crockpot and poly hot pot we survived. I was wondering if I could get a replacement top because mine now has some pockmarks in it.

  2. I’m searching for the plug that was misplaced for my Rival Crock-Plate Mulit-Cooker with Petalite, model J 3900, S/N 1030. How can I find one that will fit to purchase.

    1. Delores, try both ebay.com and etsy.com; also use startpage.com search engine to see if there are any websites that specialize in vintage wares and replacements. A long shot also might be Replacements, ltd. replacements.com

      Best wishes and good luck!
