How to convert Crock Pot time and temp to a Bean Pot…

Crock pot to Bean Pot Conversion Times LOW setting is about 200 degrees F which is similar to a Crock pot. HIGH setting is about 300 degrees F for a Bean Pot. One hour on HIGH is approximately equal to 2 to 2 ½ hours on LOW.

1 hour in the oven equals about 20-30 minutes in the microwave.

Oven Conversion - 
8 hrs low in crock pot = 2hrs 325 in bean pot
4 hrs high crock pot = 1.5 325 in bean pot
