Should my Crock Pot be hot on the outside?
I just bought my first crock pot and it is hot to the touch on the outside. For some reason I thought it would be cool on the outside, only getting hot in the interior where the food cooks. Is this typical? Or, is it maybe the brand, or that it is an inexpensive brand?
