The new regulations from FDA or USDA or wherever for the newer crock pots call for a higher heat. I sure like the old crockpots and I never got sick from any of them.
My crockpot has a 4,6,8,10 hour and "warm" setting. I am going to try the "warm" next time. I put mine on b/4 I leave for work sometimes and when I get home things are overdone!!

I noticed mine cooks a bit faster too. I do not add water to my meats for example when I cook a roast It will be a 5 lb roast and I just add two cans of cream of mushroom on top and some pepper. It takes about 5-6 hours to cook tops. You will just have to experiment a little, I have two crock pots, two different brands one with a timer one without and they vary on cooking time. Just be observant and you will get the hang of you own crock pot.I understand most people are sleeping while theirs are on or at work so you will have to experiment on your days off to get the timing down to avoid burning..

The dish I made last night I made sure it was on low.
I measured the liquids to the recipe specifications.
When I went turn it was burnt all around. I even sprayed the pot with pam this time because the last two recipes burned also. Don't know what else to, the only lower setting is keep warm.

Are you sure you are adding the right amount of liquid and have it on low? emoticon emoticon

Hey all,
Whenever I fix a recipe that says slow cook 8-10 hours on low by the 7th hour it seems to be burning. I don't know what to do, I can't really set it and forget it if it starts to burn before I wake up. Any ideas?
