    Default Slow cooker safety

    I just got a slow cooker.
    I'm going out tomorrow from 8-4. I was thinking putting a frozen roast in at 8 and leaving it on low.
    Is it safe to have it on all day if I'm not home??

    I do it all the time, leave for work at 7.15am and then when I walk in the door at 5pm, dinners ready :-)

    I probably wouldn't put a frozen roast in as they cook at a very low temp and you'll probably find it won't cook through (most meals take 6-8hrs to cook with thawed meat) but otherwise there should be no dramas leaving it once its on - mine cops a flogging every winter and I frees up my afternoons

    I have cooked a silverside from frozen on low heat from about 8 till 5 and it was cooked through!! If in doubt flick it up too high when you get home!!

    It was perfect. I put my frozen meat in at 8am and got home at 4 and put it up on high for the last hour. And it was perfect.
    Will be doing this more often.
