re: Spinoff Thread: What brand of Crockpot to get?(Posted by Degas on 1/11/13 at 1:32 pm to LSUcdro)
The one thing my next crock pot will have that my current one is sorely missing is some sort of timer, and I'm tempted to pick one up at the hardware store for my current model. If you work a 9 hour day and the recipe calls for less cooking time than that, unless you have a timer that either keeps the food on warm after the desired time, or you program it to begin once you're away, you won't be able to simply come home to a perfectly cooked dish.
In other words, if you're intending on using this while you're away at work to come home to a meal, you should consider one with a timer.
