I don't use my crockpot much, but right now I'm making chili (on the stovetop, not in my crockpot) to bring to a school function tomorrow.

Can I pour the cooked and cooled chili into the crockpot insert, refrigerate it, and reheat it in the crockpot tomorrow morning? Are there issues with the insert cracking if it's fridge-cold when you place it in the warmer?

Also, how much time should I allow for getting it back up to serving temp in the morning, and at what setting? Thanks!

I know this is too late at this point, but I do that all the time - pull it out of the fridge and reheat on the "low" setting.

Both my real Crock Pot and my cheapie slow cooker say in the manual that cracks due to this practice void the warranty.

 

That said, my real Crock Pot cracked after being on low for like 12 hours.  They sent me a new one and it, too, cracked while making bone broth.  I'm on my 3rd one now and I wouldn't risk the temperature shock thing with it.  YMMV.
