I have to admit that I am a very distracted cook. I either get in a hurry for things to cook and eat them not quite done, or I get bored and wander off to the computer or a book forgetting about what is on the stove until it starts to burn. When I use a crock pot, I know from the start that it is going to take a long time, but I don’t have to worry about it burning.
I wrote recently about my rice cooker that I bought thinking it was a crock pot. Well, I finally got a real crock pot. I don't have a working oven so the crock pot fills the gap.
I found a small crock pot, 1.5 quarts on sale at the grocery store. It doesn't have any settings and stays at about a medium-low temperature. If you have more settings, you can experiment and see what works best for you.
