I'm looking for a crockpot to use when I'm at work. AT least once a week I am gone for twelve hours and return exhausted and starving. However, I've read reviews on amazon and some threads here about crockpots cooking at too high a temp due to the fear of foodborne illness.
I plan to cook vegetables in mine, which I realize aren't without risk, but it's not the same as cooking say, chicken! I'm not worried about foodborne illness, but I am worried about scorched food.
Is anyone happy with their crockpot? Can you recommend one that will work for me? I'd like to set it to cook for a certain length of time and then shut off or keep warm.
