Hey guys so I'm about an hour into a slow-cooking process and realized I never washed my slow cooker. It's brand new and I literally just removed the packaging and went straight to dumping food inside of it. Do you guys think I should throw the food out or just eat it?

Drink lots of alcoholic beverages while you eat. Make it so that anything bad can't live in the same environment with the alcohol.

WOW. :p
You guys think the zombie virus creeped into
a brand new crockpot do yas? Every electronic device tells
you to wash it first, its SOP. I doubt there are germs or even
machine oil in there.....however you may find yerself
picking small pieces of styrofoam or other packing materials
out of your teeth. Only thing i can think of that could
be dangerous is clear plastic baggie material.
Should you survive it, i would definitely make a note not
to do that again.If all else fails, follow the instructions.

I am a firm believer in "when in doubt throw it out" .
In the last 2 months have tossed a prime strip steak and a home butchered pkg of pork loin chops.
Both had been put in a camp fridge to thaw then left out on the counter until they were pretty warm.
At home no problem..but in a different environment no way.
We went out for shrimp instead.

Crockpot not washed?
Depends on how neurotic I am at the time.
You looked inside when removing the packing right?


There is a carton of eggs sitting in there that the neighbor gathered from her chickens.
Those I am tossing.
Have never been in her camper but the carton was sitting on her picnic table and were warm to touch.
Am I crazy?
Don't think so.
