Re: Hot CP, was: Question
- Right. Of course I got rid of mine from the 70s except for the pot and the lid. Just thought the mustardy color wasn't so attractive and started buying the new ones. When I found out how hot they were, I was wishing I still had the working part I had thrown out.

- So have I . Well, actually I do not have any American slowcooker, as only the UK ones are an option for me, but they certainly do not cook too fast . I tens to keep an eye on my newer smaller ones for the time being , but they do quite satisfactorily up till now.
I have had a similar experience with British slow cookers. I have two Morphy
Richards slow cookers - a 5-litre and a 3.5-litre. They have Low, Medium and
High temps - medium is the normal cooking temp. When cooking meat, I usually
start on High for an hour and then switch to Med. I use Low for keeping warm
when necessary. I agree with the poster that the American slow cookers cook
hot to avoid possible lawsuits, and am glad that I had other options
