I burned it, Member Kentwf

First, I am not an experienced cook. So, I am learning in this process. Here is what happened: My crock pot does not have a setting called ""LOW"" . The various settings say 250 degrees for ""slow cook"" and says 300 degrees for cook and 350 for bake and on up to steam at 400 degrees. I set mine for 250 and when I woke up 7 hours later, there was no moisture in the pot, the vegetables touching the outise of the pot were burnt. The meat looks okay; I just added some water and turned it down; I am still going to eat it, eventually! It would be good to have a degrees in the recipes so we know where to set it. A little experience helps too.
