I believe the new slow cookers run at higher temperatures because of concerns over food safety - food being held at too low of a temp for too long.

Paranoia and mass hysteria rule the world these days.

My slow cooker was a wedding gift way back in in 19forgotten, and it still works the same way it did when I took it out of the box. If I set it on low, it cooks slowly, if I set it on high, it cooks quickly, and if I put it on auto, it cooks on high for 30 minutes, then switches to low until I turn it off. I have used it often over the years, both to cook dinner and to bring stuff for potlucks at work, and nobody's died yet. I don't even remember anyone getting sick.

Interesting! Kinda like Kleenex. I always ask for a Kleenex instead of a tissue. And Q-Tip . . . instead of cotton swab. Any other examples?

One thing they do great is beans,Ive also made ribs in them and brisket really good and the point of these cookers is you can put in what you want to cook go to work or what ever and dinner is done when you are ready.
No mess no fuss.

Vaseline, Band-Aid, Dumpster, Frisbee... Big list of genericized trademarks here, pretty fun to read:

Query: i've wondered if the term "slow cooker" applied to the smaller ones i.e. <3.5 litre for cooking one type of food at a time. The larger ones i.e. >= 6 litre as a "crockpot" as one puts a whole meal in there e.g. chicken with vegetables.

My idea that's all.
