Is it safe to leave your crockpot on all day while you are out?

sadiefox | Oct 24, 2008 11:46 AM

Just wondering if everyone leaves their crockpot on all day while not home. Maybe it's a dumb question, but every so often I come across someone who thinks it's not a good idea due to fire hazard. I leave mine on 8 hours while I am at work. My mom did this too. I thought that is what they are designed for. Has anyone ever had a problem???
