Low. But I've noticed that for a roast to be tender, my crockpot needs to cook it all night and all the next day. It is the same with dried beans. High seems to cook too hot and things get burned. High is probably good if you can be home and turn it down after awhile. At least mine is that way.

I love my crock pot so much that I have 2 of them. I use it more often than my regular pots and pans.
Sue, what kind of roast are you cooking that takes that long to cook and be tender? I get chuck roast and cook it for 8-10 hrs on low, mixed with beef broth and onions and when I take it out, it literally falls apart. Just curious.
Hi, thanks Magnolia and Sherrine for the sites. Those will be a big help! Thanks Gennie for the recipe. I cook spaghetti sauce in the crockpot sometimes too.
Gamma, I am using whatever is least expensive. I figure why buy an expensive one when it will be cooked all day and become tender. It is probably my crockpot that is the problem. High gets too hot and low is not quite hot enough. there is no medium.
