A while back someone on here said that the newer slow cookers cook on a higher temp than the original ones because of the danger of food poisoning due to the contents not getting hot enough which sounds like the crazy thinking of a manufacturer who's afraid of being sued!
MC, it's my guess that the customer service gal on the phone with her was frustrated.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

No she was not frustrated at all. She was very thoughtful and kind in every sense of the word.

Mumu - I understand exactly what you are saying. My crockpot also heats to boiling on both high and low settings. Mine also has a "warming" that happens after the time setting I chose has been met. The warming setting stays on until I unplug or hit the off button. You would think that the low setting would be a cooler temp (<212), or I should say provide less heating capability, than "high". If that was the way your stove worked all you would need is an "ON" and "off" button. Obiviously we have settings from low to high.

You asked this same question here and at other sites in September ...

Crock-pot, advice on temp
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

And when I posted here I never got a answer except what you posted about another site. So I asked again. If you don't mind could you or any one else who keeps bringing up other sites stop,this has been taken care of. thank you! Also the only reason I post here is to learn from you guys,and I do appr.
