What a great idea to use large slow cookers for pickle. I have a
nice small one for jewelry, but as I make large enameled wall pieces
on copper, cleaning the copper prior to enameling has been
tedious—usually hand scrubbing. What a boon to be able to dunk them
into a large pot of pickle and save all that scrubbing.
And thanks for the suggestion about sealing the seams with silicon
I have used a fairly large corning ware casserole set on a portable
electric burner, but had to watch it constantly so that it would not
boil over. Not the best thing to have in one’s studio.
I’m off to the local thrift shop to see about getting a used slow
cooker. Now why didn’t I think of that? After all, when I am down in
my studio working, my slow cooker is usually busy preparing my
dinner, so I am well aware of their usefulness. Just never thought of
using a large one in the studio.
