I tried using a crockpot for plum preserves and it didn't work at 
all.  They got brown and nasty and smelled like prunes, but hadn't 
thickened.  I did a second batch in a sheet pan spread out half an 
inch thick in a low oven, and it worked brilliantly.  I got clear 
pink beautiful preserves that tasted great.  That was plums not 
quinces.  I had the crockpot close to full.  Maybe it would work with 
a smaller batch.
