I'm trying to figure out cooking times for a 2-quart small batch Crockpot. The instruction book says for regular recipes for stove or oven, a cook time of 30 minutes translates to 6-8 hours on LOW in a Crockpot. No way! Not in a little one. I rarely cook things that long even in my big 6 quart version. I'm guessing 2-3 hours at most for the small size, but if anyone has tips for using this size cooker, I'd love to hear them. I do realize times will vary due to the particular food and other factors.
