    Default Warning! Crockpot "warm" setting!

    Am sitting here recovering from a 4 day case of food poisoning...
    Worst one I've ever had. Two days into it, I developed a fever so
    decided it'd be a wise move to take some Keflex I had on hand. Feeling
    better now and the fever is gone.

    Never, EVER use the "warm" setting on a crockpot for soup! It's not hot
    enough to keep critters from growing.

    This was a fairly new toy for me, so was not familiar with final temps
    it maintained. I had to learn the hard way so wanted to pass it on so
    nobody else has to suffer. Use "High" or "Low" but NEVER use the "warm"
    setting! I do plan on e-mailing the company about it.

    I have used it but not for cooking and not for long periods of time. Only
    for when I am waiting for my husband to get home. The food is already done
    and I don't want to cook it further. So I might leave it on this setting
    for an hour or two.

    See, that was the problem. 2 hours is the max for holding temps.
    2 hours is the log phase growth for most bacteria...

    I screwed up. Plain and simple.

    I flushed the entire pot of soup down the toilet so dad would not get
    sick. I won't even feed spoiled food to my dogs! They'd get sick too.

    I think of the "warm" setting as a way to keep an item that has finished
    cooking warm for a short period of time.

    What brand/model is your crockpot?

    Growing up, we didn't know the word "warm" when it came to eating.

    "Dinner's ready! Wash your hands."

    A wonderful clue to our survival!!!

    It is "crockpot" brand. The website printed on the crockpot itself is
    www.crockpot.com.

    I'll not pursue a lawsuit (not that petty) but I'm sure as hell going to
    let them know. I'm still not all that well... just glad I had some abx
    on hand. Still feel like ****. But at least the fever is gone.

    Plan on reading the instructions first. I'm 99.999% sure the
    instructions will clearly indicate that the "warm" setting is only to be
    used to maintain the temperature of food items already cooked and heated
    to proper >140F temperature. Certainly that is in the instructions for
    every crockpot I've used.

    Anything greater than 140 should have kept it disinfected.
    It must have dropped below 120...

    I'm going to have to test it with just water and a calibrated temp gauge.

    The food was fully cooked before I dropped it to the "warm" setting.
    For a few hours in fact.

    Exactly... that setting is for keeping something that is *already cooked*
    warm (like at a pot luck dinner).

    I'd like to know what she's going to tell the company in this email and what
    she expects to gain from it. Obviously the term "warm" is sneaky and
    elusive I've cooked with crock pots for 30 years. (The old ones didn't
    even have a warm setting.) If you read the manual - and the recipe
    booklet - the cooking settings usually specifiy something like HIGH for 3-5
    hours or LOW for 6-8 hours. It's great to be able to start a pot roast with
    potatoes on low, leave the house in the morning and come back that afternoon
    to a hot cooked meal. But warm is obviously intended for just that... to
    keep something already cooked warm.

    Jill it was mentioned that the soup was already cooked and then put on warm for
    an hour.

    Probably would have been better to go to a hospital/Dr and get checked out
    rather than self diagnose and self medicate.... but that's just me.

    Exactly how long did you have it on warm??

    And what was in the soup that made 'critters' grow? Meat?

    Speaking as someone who used to have the constitution of a mongrel dog, and
    could eat pizza that had been left out for 48hrs with no problems...... soup
    that was 'hot' from a crockpot made you sick???

    Might I suggest you look at whatever ingredients you put in it?

    And the company will say, "Jeez, you must be one of the 0.0001% of the
    population that have experienced a problem with this. Our suggestion to you
    would be to not use the warm setting if you are so susceptible to illness."

    I've never seen a 'warm' setting on a crockpot. Seen Auto, seen High, seen
    Low.... no Warm though.

    Maybe the company is foreign owned and is trying to kill off all you
    'Merikans?

    Fully cooked as in... Cooked in the crockpot just then? If not, you're not
    using it correctly. You are not supposed to use it to warm food.

    Poor Ommie!

    The cookbook I have from the dawn of that era, _Crockery_Cookery_
    specifically warned about that. The minimum safe cooking temperature
    is 180F/82C. Then the included reviews of various slow cooker models
    said things like "Position 1 is too cool to cook food properly. It is
    only designed for warming."

    Not sure what your instruction manual says, but I pulled up the
    instruction manual for one of their classic models. Under "How to use
    your slow cooker," I find this:

    NOTE: Some models feature a WARM setting. WARM is ONLY for keeping
    already cooked food warm. DO NOT cook food on the WARM setting. We do
    not recommend using the WARM setting for more than 4 hours.

    After the food is cooked, I have used the "warm" setting on mine with no
    problems. I am wondering if your "crockpot" might have a temperature
    defect. I had a Rival brand "Crock Pot" that had a thermostat that was
    so horrible it rapidly boiled liquids on "warm" I wound up tossing it
    and now have a Hamilton Beach which I adore.

    My crockpot (Rival) can't cook on the keep warm setting, it only comes
    on after the set time has elapsed for high or low, and then the keep
    warm cycle stays on only one hour. I can't engage the keep warm cycle
    unless I first set the time for high or low for some amount of time. I
    thought all crock pots worked that way

    The Rival Crock Pot was the canonical slow cooker. My old cookbook
    used it as the model for all their recipes. That unit must have been
    defective.
