Do you leave your crockpot on?

Do you leave your crockpot on when you aren't at home?  It makes me nervous, but I am pretty sure that's the norm - right?

  • I'm pretty paranoid about everything, but I use my crock pot all the time.  I wouldn't worry about it.  Just make sure whatever you're cooking has plenty of liquid.

  • All the time, but it does make me a little nervous too, lol.  I just make sure there's nothing near it.  I figure a little worrying is worth having dinner ready when I walk in the door.  Stick out tongue 
  • I was really really nervous to do it the first few times. The more I did it though the easier it got to step away and shut the door behind me. 

    It took me two years after our wedding to finally use my crockpot. LOL!

  • yes, but ours always overcooked our stuff.

    we just got a programmable one that switches to warming when done cooking.  I love it!

  • We leave ours all the time and have on high to run to the grocery or something.  I LOVE crockpot cooking.

  • I do leave mine on, and it gets a lot of use.  DH is usually in and out during the day and peeks at it when he is home.  I have left it for 10 hours.  Just make sure the area around it is clear, and you have some liquid in the pot.  It is fine.
