A family member has requested a slow cooker. She is a nurse and she works long hours. Slow cooking is the only way that she can have dinner ready for her and her husband at the end of the day.
Her requirements are two. First, she needs to be able to leave it on all day, maybe 10-12 hours, while at work. Second, she wants the ability to program it; she wants the appliance to switch to "warm and hold" when the contents are done cooking.
One additional request. Since the appliance will be on all day, I want to be sure that it is a quality appliance; I do not want to worry about an appliance fire!
I ask for your recommendations. Please offer details about your preferences.
Thanks in advance!
