Sorry, I haven't made them either.
-1- I found this online:
"The advantage of using a crock pot is that you can put the food in it, turn it on and forget it. Several hours later, the dish is ready to eat. But beans do not cook that simply in a crock pot. The Low setting is too low, lengthening the cooking time to 16 to 20 hours. And depending upon the age of the beans and the hardness of the water, the beans may not cook at all! If you cook beans on the High settling, a large amount of cooking liquid evaporates. You'll have to watch the crock pot to be sure the beans stay covered with liquid. If you want to experiment with your crock pot, try cooking soaked beans for 2 or 3 hours on High, making sure they are constantly covered by liquid. When they are just tender, turn the heat setting to Low and let them cook 6 to 8 hours longer. During these last 6 to 8 hours the beans wont need any special attention." The source for above is:www.vegsource.com/talk/beginner/messages/1
-2- Someone else said you could cook the lentils on high for two hours, then on low for about 8 hours, making sure they are well covered in water.
-3- Still another person said you should soak overnight before cooking in the crockpot.
