I was wondering if many people use crockpots in their pods?  Proctor-Silex has a small 1.5 qt oval crockpot that has caught my eye but I'm a bit nervous about keeping something plugged in while we are away from the pod.  Plus, being a crockpot newb, I wouldn;t know what to make in it other than oatmeal or soup.

 Yup, we do it all the time.  In the summer we often leave it outside so we don't smell up the pod.  Roasts, dumplings with beef and veggies, chilli, chicken with gravy, etc.

Won't leaving it outside attract animals?

I agree it could be a problem at some parks, but busier commercial parks haven't been a problem.

And there it may attract humans...

We use one. no problems. It's no more "dangerous" than leaving it on all day when home.. The pod doesn't create some "danger wormhole" that causes 120v to act funny or run backwards..

OK.. well half the time it runs backwards.. but it does it at home too.. LOL.

get a crock pot cook book. or google crock pot recipes..

We used a crockpot this year for the first time also. Get for those cool fall evenings, coming back from a canoe outing and having a hot meal ready... We leave ours outside also.

I'm looking at the oval 1.5 qt Proter-Silex.  I think this is the size usually used for those dip warmers, but this one is oval which should fit a chicken breast.  Is this the right size to get? 

I'm looking to not have much for leftovers since there probably won't be much fridge space for storage since we usually pick up fresh beer along the way.
