  1. These look great and who knew slow-cookers were so versatile?! I want to buy a slow cooker but am concerned about the possibility of them leaching lead… As I want to make bone broth and would have to leave it on for 8-24hrs; this is a long time and if lead is getting into the broth, completely defeats the purpose. Which slow cooker do you use? thanks for sharing :)
