As a point of discussion GG, my opinion is that it's seldom unattended food cooked for hours on end without ever lifting a lid, will ever have the same quality as an attended pot with some tender loving care.
On the other hand, crock pots are a wonderful invention for those who simply can't be in the kitchen, attending to the pot. I've sure been there, but now I have little use for a crock pot.
