Safest way to leave something cooking all day?
May I have opinions please? I often leave something cooking for several hours while no one is home. I am comfortable using my slow cookers for that, but we just got a new induction range so I am wondering if it would make more sense to get a cast iron Dutch oven to use on that instead. Our countertops are wood (if it matters), and the house is old but the kitchen was completely rewired three months ago during renovation.
Here are the options:
1. Slow cookers (one is 15-20 yrs old, one about 1 year old and gets much hotter)
2. Dutch oven on induction range
3. Dutch oven in the range's oven
I am not concerned about temperature and food safety, but in not burning down the house.
