Crock Pot Size/Cook Time

Does the size of a crock pot (slow-cooker, whatever) have any effect on the actual cook time of the food inside? I kind of work on a funny schedule where some of my meals are planned around certain time increments and worry that a larger crockpot will turn my life upside down :) Also, being a newbie to the forum, is there a spot for crock pot recipes? I browsed a bit but didn't see anything. Thanks!

Welcome to the site!

I do not think the size plays any role is cooking time. We are talking about such long cook times usually that there is a wide window time in which the food can be complete. Most recipes will say your meal will be done after 8-10 hours or 10-12 hours or something like that. Crock Pot meals are pretty forgiving that way.

You can find our slow cooker section here.
