Do things simmer on the high setting in a crockpot? I have only used them a few times and thought that they didn't.

Not these days. In older models they did, but not any longer. My old crock pot simmers on high but it is from 1990.

I thought the Feds mandated higher (safer) temps in newer slowcookers.
