I'm looking forward to hearing the results. I'll let you know where to send the leftovers later.

...The Low on this cooker is kinda like High & Low. The High was very very hot to the touch, and Low was also hot, but not as "cool" as the old cooker.

If this cooker had a "warm" I would guess this would be like a "Low" + alil lower temp.

Rival crock pot supposedly does not get too hot. don't know I have one of the old ones and I'm hanging on to it. The new ones boil things even at low setting.

For S&Gs I got newer one about 3/4 full of water & measured the temp on Low & High. On Low I got a temp of just over 140*f .. and on High I was getting at least or just slightly below 212*f (my meat thermometer stopped at 190*f) .. plus when I took off the lid the water was bubbling slightly.

Rival Crockpot: Stoneware Slow Cooker, model 3150, 135watt & 210watt

I just found out that the older (circa 1984) Rival 3150 had wattages of 120 & 210.

I broke my old pot, dropped it. Got the new one, it is total disaster. I need the food to cook for at least 20 hours or so, on hot it burns completely, on low it still burns, on keep warm it is beraly warm, and definitely not cooked proparly
