  1. How can you simmer your broth for 2 days. My liquid is almost gone in 15 hours. In fact once I burned it all off before I realized it. I must just have it on too high a temperature, but I don't think it would simmer if I turned it down to the next setting. Suggestions?

  2. I usually make quite large batches. A good fitting lid is important, and then it depends on the broth. I really only do 24 hours for chicken, but beef bone broth is on my list to make, and it needs longer to work through those bones. I have added water before, if it's gotten too low and I still want to simmer it. As long as the water is just moving, I am happy with it. Can you adjust just a smidgen, or is it a separate setting? Another thing that helps is a thick bottomed pan so that you are getting as even a heat as possible. I found a great stock pot on craigslist (in Seattle) years ago that has served me well.
