You know, my MIL just heats up whatever in a pot and then sticks it in a box surrounded by insulation (bags of Styrofoam beads I think, like a bean bag chair) and lets it sit for however long. It's the poor man's version of a crock pot, but also lead free if your pot is lead free.

In the original lead + crockpot thread, I linked to an article about how laymen's testing isn't reliable.

If you think about it - you rub the lead test on your insert & it comes up negative - great, but when you fill the insert with stew/stock/chicken & cook it at a high temperature for hours on end, don't you think that the lead would leach out, especially if you're cooking something acidic like tomatoes?

That's like licking the outside of a posionous berry & declaring it safe for people to eat.
