Juat so you's not a good idea to use a slow-cooker to cook beans or legumes in the manner described in the link. Specific steps need to be taken first--primarily soaking overnight, rinsing, then boiling vigorously before adding to a slow-cooker:

Yes, thank you! FWIW I make my beans in a large pot on the stovetop.

If I recall, you had posted links to this issue of using slow cookers and I am grateful to you for it because I know I had emailed the link to people I know.

These links look different from the original ones so I'll go and read them at length at another time.
