My crockpot burns food, even food that is still frozen when put in the crockpot. I made a pot roast in my crockpot and it was frozen in the beginning. I added two cups of frozen broth and set the...

Your crockpot heat unit is overheating. Return it to the store you purchased it at or contact the manufacturer. My Rival did that and I contacted the company and they sent me a new one.

Whats the differences with the low high and auto settings on a slow cooker which setting is considered best for cooking stews

The difference is the time and how warm it cooks. Low cooks a slow, lower heat - cooks 6-8 hours. And High is a faster cook at 4-6 hours. I tend to use low for stews and chilis.

Hi - I have a Rival Smart-Pot slow cooker and set it all up to cook a stew just this morning. I set it on low for 8 hours. I have just arrived home (earlier then expected) 5 hours later to find the lights...

It could be you lost ac power from the power company during the day (if only for a few seconds).
Did you notice anything else in your house that was affected (VCR, alarm clock,etc.)?

Crock pot use

You should keep the lid on as much as possible. You are correct; once you open the lid, the liquid inside can quickly lose temperature at a rate of 10-15 degrees per minute.

Additionally, taking the top off allows steam to escape, which reduces the point of cooking in a slow cooker (cooking in a relatively closed system, with the steam condensing back to water and flowing back into the broth).

It's not doing a whole lot to the flavor (aside from causing the stew to thicken with the loss of water), but it is definitely causing the cooking to take longer than it should.
