It might be a good idea to recall that the other name for the pot is "slow cooker".

Here is a recipe for crockpot pinto beans courtesy of food.com.  It says in the recipe to put a bay leaf in only if you’re vegetarian, but I put it in anyway.

crockpot pinto beans

1 lb. dry pinto beans
6 cups. water or broth
1-1/2 tsp. sea salt (add more if desired) pepper to taste
1 T. bacon fat, or 2 pieces of bacon, or a ham hock (omit if vegetarian)
1 bay leaf (only if vegetarian)

1.Rinse and sort beans.
2.In a pot or bowl, add warm water covering the beans by two inches. Let soak overnight.
3.Drain the next day and add beans to a crockpot.
4.Add 6 cups water or broth as well as fat (use a bay leaf if you are vegetarian).
5.Cook on low for 7-9 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.
6.After beans are tender, add salt and pepper to taste.
