If I set this to cook for work in the morning will the keep function keep it warm for 6 hours and then be ok to eat when I get home?

    Hi Cindy, thanks for your reply.
    You can do it this way, else you an set it to the Slow Cook function and have it cook over 5 hours and then keep warm for 1 hour.
    Should you require anything further, please don’t forget to contact us directly.
