lol...i'm glad someone else thinks the way i do when i leave the house and the crock pot is going. i've been doing it for years (makes a fantastic roast) but i pray as i leave every time.
I was scared to death the first time I left one, too. Actually...we still try to mostly stay home if we are using it! LOL!
I was as well. Until, I asked a firefighter friend and he told me he has never attended a crock pot fire!!
never ever ever going to happen.not enough heat.we use our crock pot with impunity!have confidence, you will fall in love.
I love my crock pot! have faith
