Don't lift the crockpot lid during cooking, especially if you are cooking on LOW. Lifting the lid causes so much heat to escape that you'll need to add 15-20 minutes to the cooking time for each time you "sneak a peek" or satisfy your "urge to stir."
MOST crockpot recipes require no stirring (or peeking), so go find something else to do and let your crockpot do its thing.
