I bought a Joyoung crock pot last night, brought it home, filled it halfway with water and checked the temps. Low is about 50 C, medium is 80 C and high...was too hot to manage but not quite boiling, so I am guessing more than 90, maybe 95.
The low temp on most crock pots in the u.s. seems to be about 60 C I am not sure what to do. Is it safe to cook dishes with meats set at low? Is it really a "slow cooker" if I have to use 80 C?
Do other brands of crockpots have different settings? Yoyoung makes a digital pot, for about twice the money. I am wondering if that allows the user to control the temperature (by degree setting, not just L, M, H) and the time?
Any input would be appreciated.
