Please answer this question
So I just had this argument with my boyfriend's older brother. He is about 30 years old super lazy and really dirty. And today I come in too see a slow cooker on top of the stove on right next to the burner. So I looked at my boyfriend and said well that's not safe.. as usual he gets right defensive and says it's not going to melt… our stovetop is old the burners get extremely hot even after leaving them for a while and he has the slow cooker cord 2 inches from the burner… now I usually don't cook often but I clearly use my bloody head…. Would the cords not catch fire and spark and probably start a fire or am I crazy?
