I think the concern with that is that the food might not heat up to a safe temperature if it's been sitting for hours first. It may be a better idea to let it cook then warm, which has worked well on my model.

You only have a certain amount of time to get food up to a safe temp. before nasty creatures start to grow. That's why you won't find a delay timer on any slow cookers. Some take so long to come up to the proper temp. that an additional timer would only ensure lawsuits.

Really. You should think about what you are asking. To leave food sitting out at room temperature is only inviting some bad stomach problems. Start it and then let it go to the warm mode. That way you know that your food is safe.

This is what I wanted too! I was hoping that with a more expensive model that a start timer would be available.

I bought an inexpensive timer that you plus into the outlet for turning lights on and off when you are on vacation. It works good for slow cookers too. Unfortunately it doesn't work with slow cookers that have to be started with an on off button like this one. You'll want to get one that turns on when you plus it in.
