Plug that crockpot up and cook something. How often does your hot water heater catch on fire?

We got too much else to worry about in our lives to fret over a crockpot. Worry about what you are going to put in it and how good its going to taste.

Happy crocking.

Hi Everyone, I just joined today. I am looking for some new things to cook in my crock pot. I have been using it for sometime now, but would like to shake things up a bit...LOL. I always adjust the recipes as I have food allergies. But I still love to use my crock pot. This little appliance is a life and time saver. I use mine a couple of times a week.
Thanks.
Have a healthy weekend.

If you think aboput it you ahve much larger appliances runnign electricity all day. For instance your refrigerator. the TV, radios, stereos. So many appliances have current running throught hem even when they are turned "off". So I have no fear of a crockpot being on while I am not home.

I put mine in the middle of the stove...'seems' the safest spot for my liking and other than that, I go about my day-go to work, whatever. SlowCookers are designed to be turned on and ignored...that's the whole point of them...they were not created to have someone sit vigil watching it cook for 4-10 hrs. It's no more risky than having your refridgerator running. =)

Hugs,
Dana

I leave mine all the time, just making sure there is nothing around it (papers, plastics, etc.) that might heat up and catch on fire. Other than that, I have no problem in leaving it and have never had an incident. Just check that the cord is not mangled in anyway (chewed up or something like that), clear the space around it and enjoy it.

I feel the same way you do.I am always scared it will catch fire when nobody is home and my furballs will be traped.One of the good things with having your in laws live attached to your house is that someone is ALWAYS home!

MAGICNMYSTERY,
I feel the same way you do. I'm nervous to leave a crockpot on if I'm not home. I wonder if my homeowners insurance covers me if there's a fire from this appliance? I guess it's something to look into.

I use my crockpot all of the time when I am gone. Sometimes I am gone at least 10 hrs. I just makesure that it is on low. I think I read that it is like having a light bulb on. No more electricity than that. Have Courage. Be adventurous! emoticon

Don't be nervous. That's the whole purpose of crockpotting. Put it in in the a.m. and come back hours later to an already cooked meal. Wonderful isn't it emoticon

I have posted a bit in this team but I thought I would introduce myself. I just recently got my crockpot and have only used it once. I am hoping to use it more often because my husband and I both get home late, after work and the gym, and often we don't feel like cooking.

I'm hesitant to use my crockpot again without being home the entire time. I did this once to test it out, it was fine. I guess I am just a bit nervous somthing will go wrong.
