Maybe because I make my cholent Thursday night. So Thursday night I keep it on high or low, Friday night before shabbos when it's already cooked I switch to keep warm. Never had an issue bh.

It depends on the slow cooker that you use.

My Hamilton Beach runs hot, so Keep Warm keeps the food at a safe temperature. YMMV.

Makes sense. That is what I was thinking

Mine is on high for hours until shabbos. It’s fully cooked before it goes on low.


Btw- cholent in the oven is also really good!

Not all beans are a problem. Kidney beans and lima beans are the ones that can be the most toxic. White beans and pinto beans are perfectly safe.

I do a big batch in the pressure cooker, and make sure that some of the beans are mushy (not all of them.) The mushy beans tell me that I've finally got the whole batch cooked through. Then I portion and freeze.

Not all kitchen appliances are created equal. One person's pressure cooker could take 1 hour, and another brand could take 3 hours.

One brand of crock pot could burn the bottom of your cholent even on the "warm" setting. Another brand will create a lovely mold garden to greet you the next morning (BTDT Confused .)

There is a fine line, and a fine art, between having hot food for Shabbos, and sending your friends and loved ones to the emergency room with food poisoning.

This bean thing is new to me. If my cholent cooks for at least 6 hours on high in the crackpot, is that OK cuz then the beans are fully cooked. Right before shabbos I turn it on to low.

The effects of chulent on the digestive system are the punchline of many a joke. (Mincha vestee davenen in Belz…)
I’m surprised that people are finding out about this now.

If you forget to soak them always have canned beans at home and use canned beans for the chulent


Dh loves cholent but would suffer terrible stomach aches no matter, for a good few days. Recently switched to canned black and kidney beans and it's great. I pour them into a colander and rinse them off and drain them well and into the cholent they go ...

I haven't been using chulent bean mix for a long time because I wanted to avoid the kidney beans. We found them to be too heavy on the stomach. I create my own mix from all kinds of white beans.

I think you are supposed to soak them for 5 hours and than boil with new water. Just after that put it in the chulent. You need to get rid of the bad substance

I soak and boil up the beans but is it okay then to put it in with raw meat in the slow cooker, or is it better to also cook the meat a bit beforehand?

You can put the meat in raw.
