    I actually did this today with 3 medium sized sweet potatoes and it only took 2 hours on high. I’m at high altitude so I’m not sure if that affected it but they were delicious. They were soft enough to mash.

      Thanks for letting us know. I imagine it depends on how many potatoes and the size of your slow cooker. I always have several in there since I have a large family.
