    i have a question on these pot heaters, can you leave them and go to bed, or do you have to keep eye on them all nite?

      The candles are small and will not burn more than a couple of hours. If the glass casserole pan is Pyrex or a similar product, it should be fine. I'd suggest putting it in a sink or such if you are concerned.

      We leave ours I always check before bed and they have always been just fine.
