I use my crockpot several times/week and make everything from stuffed peppers to hot oatmeal in it. (Yes, I've made BBQ ribs, etc. in it too.)

I've never made pasta or rice in it though. Not for any particular reason. I just haven't.

It actually cooks on a low heat, (which is why it takes many hours to cook things in), so it's reasonably safe to leave on. On many models the outside can get a bit hot to the touch, which is probably why an above poster said to make sure to leave room around it.

In addition to recipies which have been posted on C-D, there are loads of crockpot recipes on the net.

They are very safe as others have stated, they cook on a low temperature.

This is one of my favorite slow cooker recipe sites: A Year of Slow Cooking

One of the first things I learned to cook in a crock pot was Beef Burgundy. Throw some stew meat in the crock pot. Cover with 2 cans of golden mushroom soup and add 2 cans worth of burgundy wine. Let it cook all day then serve over noodles with a salad and crusty french bread.

I do country style pork ribs all the time. Easy peasy. Just quickly, salt & pepper the ribs and lightly brown them in a little olive oil, in a skillet. This just takes a few minutes. Then put them in the crock pot, and pour a bottle of your favorite bbq sauce over it. Leave in the morning and come home in the evening to wonderful smells and a delicious meal.

I was watching cook country (America's test kitchens) they showed you how to make a BBQ beef brisket in the crock pot. Very interesting.Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Brisket - Recipe | Cook’s Country - Recipes That Work. I plan to try this.

Look for a removal pot with low, high and warm settings. CrockPot is the brand I would trust to hold up in frequent use.

I do this recipe too, minus the wine. Then I add carrots, potatoes, and sliced mushrooms to the recipe a couple hours before serving. Yum.

I love the crockpot for my homemade chili, we have the "Crockpot" brand and use it about once a week.
