  • If I've started something in the oven, sure ... BUT in my case, there are other people in the house that really don't go anywhere except doc appointments. However, that is NOW. I've started supper and went to pick my son up from school and no one else be home.

    I know crockpots are good, but for some reason, I really don't trust them. *shrug* Maybe b/c I had one cook totally dry WAY before it was supposed to. Yes, I had it on the right temp and enough water for what I was cooking.
