    I WILL, however, share my bestest tip for crockpotting. shhh.gif I typically shop at thrift stores and that's where I got my crockpot several years ago, still going strong. It doesn't have a timer, which is fine by me, but what I do is plug it into a lamp timer. No kidding. For oatmeal, I set it to turn on in the wee hours and it's ready when I get up in the morning without being overcooked. You get the idea....


    Just make sure that you find an outlet in the thriftstore to check out that it actually works, first. That actually goes for all appliances at thriftstores. I've often plugged them in to discover they don't work.

    As far as the timer goes - I actually prefer ones with just a knob with low, high, and warm. The ones that are timers with no control over the temperature... I really dislike those. The lamp timer is a great idea, thanks! icon_smile.gif

    Yep, plugging everything in first is mandatory! When I tested the crockpot before I bought it, I just plugged it in in an out of the way spot (and notified a clerk) and did some other shopping and came back to it. Good to go 5 years later!

    I'm lovin' this so far! I have a timer and was talking to DH a few days ago about doing the same thing! I wasn't sure how it would work so I ended up baking it Sunday eve and Nuking Monday eve... (oh.. it was augratin potatoes and ham) icon_biggrin.gif I was thinking about getting it all in the crock the night before, refridgerating it until morning then setting it up to cook an hour after I leave then having it shut off about the time I get home, or a little before... That way it would not have to cook for 10 hrs before I could shut it off!
    I hope to learn and maybe share a lot of do's and don'ts here. icon_biggrin.gif
    Great thread! Thanks! icon_biggrin.gif

    This is amazing. I love my crockpot. Actually, I got a brand new one for Christmas. It has a timer and everything. Only 25 years to upgrade.



    A timer?? Holy cow, I've got to get one of those. I'd love to do half-day cooking in the crockpot, but who wants to come home from work at lunch time to turn the blasted thing on...

    I'll just use a timer like you'd use for a lamp while on vacation. My Crockpot is fairly new, so I can't retire it yet! Just plug the timer into the outlet, set the on/off time, plug the crock into it and turn the crock to High or Low.. Should be safe as long as the crock and it's contents are chilled, I would think.. icon_confused.gif icon_question.gif
    So how long of a delay before cooking is actually safe?
    Paula does the bookgive guidelines for safe food handling when using the timer?

    A timer is a great idea! And what a good point-- gotta keep that in mind! Don't want to give the little nasties an opportunity to thrive. Use of the timer function might make the most sense if you start out with frozen ingredients.

    icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif I'm cooking my first meal in my first crock pot as I'm typing. It's Crock pot Corned Beef and Cabbage #55394 by Rita L.

    It sure smells good. I put the corned beef on top of the vegetables as directed. It's sitting up out of the liquid: is that OK?

    DH didn't want to get it but it came with a cute 1-qt baby crock that will be perfect for hot dips. icon_lol.gif


    This recipe came out great. My review should show up with 5 stars.

    Hi Julessong - I thought Crockpots were terrible until about 2 years ago when I started to cook properly in them - now I love them! No - all food does not taste the same which is the complaint the I have heard most frequently. They are wonderful in the summer when you don't want to heat up the kitchen - I even go so far as to put it out on the patio (in the shade). I love them in the Winter for comfort food recipes. I have a few favorite recipes if you like I'll dig them out and post the numbers here.
    These new forums are a great idea
