    I managed to find a 2nd hand Morphy Richards digital Slow Cooker for £10 this morning. It's only been used once and is in excellent condition. I'm thrilled with it. It came with an instruction manual but I'm just curious about one thing and hope another slow cooker owner can help.It has a keep warm function which cuts in once the meal has finished cooking but no-where in the manual does it say how long this goes on for. Is it indefinite or does it turn itself off after a certain time?
    It will be useful for me to know as the maximum time the slow cooker can be cooking is 12 hours and I'm generally out of the house on a work day for 13 - 14 hours. Would be great if it was still kept warm until then.

    mine doesn't switch off,but certain foods apparently shouldn't be on warm for more than 2 hrs(mine is a tesco one and that is what is says in the handbook). I would cook items on low rather than hot if your out for longer than 10 hrs so the warm function wont be on for too long.
