How about securing it with some of those spring-loaded bars we use in the fridge or medicine cabinet while under way? Just like a cargo bar in the back of a pickup. Pin it against one side of the sink.

Also, we have a crock pot that came with an insulated carrying case. Coming with it was a silicone (like bakeware) band that can be used to secure the lid.

Great suggestions!

I haven't tried this myself, but when my brother does it he uses the built in inverter in his TV and has it in there.

I prefer to use the beer to help swallow the hot dogs.

SWMBO's family has reunion - in PA every other year. she's done the "crockpot in the sink" routine often, without problems. Of course, it's Interstate highway most of the way, and 8 hour trip is enough time to cook 'til it's done. We've since downsized this year and don't have the inverter, so that's probably a thing of the past. But it worked well. If you're going to be on highways, go for it!
