PREPARING FOR USE
Before you use your Crockpot® slow cooker, remove all packaging and wash the lid and stoneware with warm soapy water and dry thoroughly.
IMPORTANT NOTES: Some countertop and table surfaces are not designed to withstand the prolonged heat generated by certain appliances. Do not set the heated unit on a heat-sensitive surface. We recommend placing a hot pad or trivet under your slow cooker to prevent possible damage to the surface.
Please use caution when placing your stoneware on a ceramic or smooth glass cooktop stove, countertop, table, or another surface. Due to the nature of the stoneware, the rough bottom surface may scratch some surfaces if caution is not used.
Always place protective padding under stoneware before placing it on a table or countertop.
During the initial use of this appliance, some slight smoke or odor may be detected. This is normal with many heating appliances and will not recur after a few uses.
- Place the stoneware into the heating base.
- Attach the lid by inserting the hinge mechanism into the hinge slot at the rear of the heating base.

G. The high-temperature light or low-temperature light will come on.
NOTE: The KEEP WARM setting is ONLY for keeping food that has already been cooked warm. DO NOT cook on the WARM setting. We do not recommend using the WARM setting for more than 4 hours.
- Press the timer up/down buttons
Hto select a cooking time. The time can be set in increments of 30 minutes up to

I. Follow steps 2 and 3 above to return to cooking. To turn your slow cooker OFF, unplug it from the supply socket.
- If the mains power has been interrupted (power cut), the display and lights will flash when the power is restored. All the slow cooker settings will have been lost. As a result, the food may be unsafe to eat. If you are unaware of how long the power was off, we suggest you discard the food inside.
- To avoid over or under-cooking, always fill the stoneware ½ to ¾ full and conform to the recommended cooking times.
- Do not overfill the stoneware. To prevent spillover, do not fill the stoneware higher than ¾ full.
- If desired, you can manually switch to the warm setting when your recipe has finished cooking.
- Always cook with the lid on for the recommended time. Do not remove the lid during the first two hours of cooking to allow the heat to build up efficiently.

GUIDE TO ADAPTING RECIPES
This guide is designed to help you adapt your own and other recipes for your slow cooker. Many of the normal preparatory steps are unnecessary when using your slow cooker. In most cases, all ingredients can go into your slow cooker at once and cook all day. General:
• Allow sufficient cooking time.
• Always cook with the lid on.
• For best results and to prevent food from drying or burning, always ensure an adequate amount of liquid is used in the recipe.
|RECIPE TIME||COOK ON LOW||COOK ON HIGH|
|15 – 30 minutes||4 – 6 hours||1½ – 2 hours|
|30 – 45 minutes||6 – 10 hours||3 – 4 hours|
|50 minutes – 3 hours||8 – 10 hours||4 – 6 hours|
PASTA AND RICE:
- For best results, use long grain rice unless the recipe states otherwise. If the rice is not cooked completely after the suggested time, add an extra 1 to 1½ cups of liquid per cup of cooked rice and continue cooking for 20 to 30 minutes.
- For best pasta results, add the pasta to the slow cooker during the last 30 to 60 minutes of cook time.
- Dried beans, especially red kidney beans, should be boiled before adding to a recipe.
- Fully cooked canned beans may be used as a substitute for dried beans.
- Many vegetables benefit from slow cooking and are able to develop their full flavor. They tend not to overcook in your slow cooker as they might in your oven or on your hob.
- When cooking recipes with vegetables and meat, place vegetables into the stoneware before meat. Vegetables usually cook more slowly than meat in the slow cooker and benefit from being partially immersed in the cooking liquid.
- Place vegetables near the sides or bottom of the stoneware to help with cooking.
- Milk, cream, and sour cream break down during extended cooking. When possible, add during the last 15 to 30 minutes of cooking.
- Condensed soups may be substituted for milk and can cook for extended times.
- Some recipes call for large amounts of water/stock. Add the soup ingredients to the stoneware first then add water/stock only to cover. If a thinner soup is desired, add more liquid when serving.
- Trim the fat, rinse well, and pat the meat dry with paper towels.
- Browning meat beforehand allows fat to be drained off before slow cooking and also adds greater depth of flavor.
- Meat should be positioned so that it rests in the stoneware without touching the lid.
- For smaller or larger cuts of meat, alter the number of vegetables or potatoes so that the stoneware is always ½ to ¾ full.
- The size of the meat and the recommended cook times are just estimates and can vary depending upon the specific cut, type, and bone structure. Lean meats such as chicken or pork tenderloin tend to cook faster than meats with more connective tissue and fat such as brisket or pork shoulder. Cooking meat on the bone versus boneless will increase the required cook times.
- Cut meat into smaller pieces when cooking with precooked foods such as beans, or light vegetables such as mushrooms, diced onion, aubergine, or finely minced vegetables. This enables all food to cook at the same rate.
- Fish cooks quickly and should be added at the end of the cooking cycle during the last fifteen minutes to one hour of
- It might appear that slow cooker recipes only have a small quantity of liquid in them but the slow cooking process differs from other cooking methods in that the added liquid in the recipe will almost double during the cooking time. If you are adapting a recipe for your slow cooker from a conventional recipe, please reduce the amount of liquid before cooking.
