K, I’m not a huge fan of Crock Pot cooking but I do love it for beans especially when it’s 100 plus outside. Yesterday I got my crock out and noticed a rancid smell in the cabinet. Then saw some oil oozing out from the seam near the base. It was put away clean and I couldn’t figure out where the oil had come from. I wiped it and cooked my chick peas. Went to clean the base and when I lifted it one of the rubber feet stuck to the counter and then a good bit more oil, both clear and creamy white oozed and dripped from the foot hole. Ewwwww, rancid, ewwww. Is this normal? Do all crock pots have oil in the base? Am I the last to know?
