Leave That Lid Alone!

This Sparked Me!

Every time the crockpot is uncovered, HALF of the cooking time is lost! Most pots have a glass lid, so you can see what's going on inside. If for some reason you must open the pot, make sure you do all your additions then to minimize overall heat loss. I know you want to.. but LEAVE THAT LID ALONE!

    I have to leave a big not on the counter to tell everyone to leave the lid on, and they still seem to have to have a look or open it to smell it more. Thinking about hiding it in the garage next time.
