The first picture is a picture of the crock type bowl that I used to make the cheesecake. Really a basic cooking bowl or cooking pan will work. The second picture is the crock bowl in the bottom of the crock-pot. I hope the contrast is enough. You can add a metal trivet if you want, but setting pan to crock-pot is just fine. The water would go in the space surrounding the crock type bowl. Sorry I tried putting the water in and taking a picture but it really didn’t show well. I hope this gives a clearer picture of how this works.
