Is there any brand crockpot that lasts more than a year?
No. But to extend the life of mine (due to the biggest issue seeming to be the siding collapsing) I placed electrical tape along the seems between the base and sidings, and along the top of the siding where there is another seam. My Crock-Pot is still upright but someone dropped the ceramic insert and it has a fracture, so there went all that.
I'm not who you think I am.

They aren't made very well but I imagine the care has what to do with it. Mine lasted 5 years.

+1 my parents had theirs for years, and I think they only got a new one when the ceramic insert broke. I've had mine for a few years with no issue...
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

Just got back from the Hermon, IN THE SUMMER, it was very nice with enough attractions to keep the whole family busy for at least half a day. They have the following:

Cable Car to the highest point in E"Y
Carting which is a 3 wheel bike going down the mountain with only hand brakes. (I thought it was amazing) (15+)
Tubing on the side of the mountain for kids
Sky ride (think Batman in Great Adventures but on a much smaller level)
Roller coaster on the mountain (1-2 people per ride, each cart has a break to slow yourself down)

There is a pass for 110 ILS which includes 4 times on the above rides plus 3 times down on the tubing

Cable Car by itself is 49 ILS.

There is no entrance fee (like there is in the winter), lines are relatively short and move fast.

There is also a Kayaking option I did not take.

Place is CLOSED by 4:15.

IIRC you can only do it from a computer if you buy a card reader device made specifically for rav kavs.

Without a card reader, you can do it on a cell phone that has NFC. Download the Rav Kav Online app to do it. (Android only IIRC.)
