crock pot,is that what this is?
I pulled it out, got it as a wedding gift, used it once to fry chicken. It has one of those deep dishes that comes out for frying directly in the bottom part. I want to know if it's a crock pot or a slow cooker? I heard that crock pots are good for summer use and use less electricity than reg. stove tops. Is this true? Since it takes so much longer ,does it still use less electricity? Mine has a temperature guage that reads 200 degrees,then 250 degrees, then 300 degrees,then deep fry. And, what do you put under the pot while it's on, it seems to get too hot for the countertop, and can I leave it on at night on low, I thought it sounded dangerous, but someone said they do it. Any suggestions are appreciated.
