CROCK-POT® SLOW COOKER COMPONENTSCrock-Pot Stoneware Slow Cooker Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 5

PREPARING YOUR CROCK-POT® SLOW COOKER FOR USE
Before you use your slow cooker, remove all packaging components 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 finished wood table. We recommend placing a hot pad or trivet under your slow cooker to prevent possible damage to the surface.

During initial use of this appliance, some slight smoke and/or odour may be detected. This is normal with many heating appliances and will not recur after a few uses.
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 setting it on the table or countertop.

ASSEMBLY:
1. Place stoneware into the heating base.
2. Lower the lid onto the stoneware (see Figure 1).

HOW TO USE YOUR SLOW COOKER

1. Place the stoneware into the heating base, add your ingredients to the stoneware and cover with the lid.
2. Plug in your Crock-Pot® slow cooker. You will have to reduce the cooking time of the recipe if the stoneware is less than three-quarters full.
3. Press the desired cook setting button (HIGH or LOW). WARM is also an option that can be selected, although it is only intended to keep food warm and not to cook.Crock-Pot Stoneware Slow Cooker Instruction Manual  & troubleshooting 6

4. Press the timer button to select the desired time setting. Please note the following are the preprogrammed times that automatically appear based on the cook setting selected  and are adjustable:
WARM = 6 hours
LOW= 10 hours
HIGH= 6 hours
5. Once all selections are made the corresponding light illuminates, the slow cooker heats, and the internal timer starts counting downtime in 1-minute increments.
6. When the cooking time has been completed, the slow cooker automatically shifts to the WARM setting and the WARM light illuminates. The timer will display the amount of time the unit has been on WARM and will shut off after six hours.

USAGE NOTES:

  •  If there is a power outage while cooking when the power is restored the unit will be off. All slow cooker settings have been cleared and must be reset. However, the food may be unsafe to eat. If you are unaware of how long the power was out, we suggest you discard the food.
  •  Do not overfill stoneware. To prevent spillover, do not fill stoneware higher than ¾ full.
  • 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.
  •  Always wear oven mitts when handling the lid or stoneware.
  •  Unplug when cooking is done and before cleaning.
  •  Removable stoneware is ovenproof and microwave safe. Do not use removable stoneware on gas or electric burner or under the broiler. Refer to the chart below.
DISHWASHER MICROWAVE HOB PART OVEN-SAFE SAFE SAFE SAFE
Lid Yes No No No
Stoneware Yes Yes, but not under the grill Yes’ No

* Refer to your Microwave manual for operation with stoneware.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR SLOW COOKER

  • ALWAYS turn your slow cooker off, unplug it from the electrical outlet, and allow it to cool before cleaning.
  • The lid and stoneware can be washed in the dishwasher or with hot, soapy water. Do not use abrasive cleaning compounds or scouring pads. A cloth, sponge, or rubber spatula will usually remove residue. To remove water spots and other stains, use a non-abrasive cleaner or vinegar.
  •  As with any fine ceramic, the stoneware and lid will not withstand sudden temperature changes. Do not wash the stoneware or lid with cold water when they are hot.
  •  The outside of the heating base may be cleaned with a soft cloth and warm, soapy water. Wipe dry. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
    CAUTION: Never immerse the heating base in water or other liquid.
  •  No other servicing should be performed.
    NOTE: After cleaning by hand allow the pot to air dry before storing.

HINTS AND TIPS

PASTA AND RICE:

  • For best rice results, use long grain converted rice or special rice as the recipe suggests. If there 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, first partially cook the pasta in a pot of boiling water until just tender. Add the pasta to the Crock-Pot® slow cooker during the last 30 minutes of cook time.

BEANS:

  • Beans must be softened completely before combining with sugar and/or acidic foods. Sugar and acid have a hardening effect on beans and will prevent softening.
  •  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.

VEGETABLES:

  • 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 in the slow cooker before meat. Vegetables usually cook more slowly than meat in the slow cooker.
  •  Place vegetables near the sides or bottom of the stoneware to facilitate cooking.

HERBS AND SPICES:

  •  Fresh herbs add flavor and color but should be added at the end of the cooking cycle as the flavor will dissipate over long cook times.
  • Ground and/or dried herbs and spices work well in slow cooking and may be added at the beginning.
  • The flavor power of all herbs and spices can vary greatly depending on their particular strength and shelf life. Use herbs sparingly, taste at end of the cook cycle and adjust seasonings just before serving.

MILK:

  •  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.

SOUPS:
Some recipes call for large amounts of water. Add the soup ingredients to the slow cooker first then add water only to cover. If a thinner soup is desired, add more liquid when serving.

MEATS:

  • Trim the fat, rinse well, and pat meat dry with paper towels.
  • Browning meat in a separate skillet or grill pan 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 beef chuck or pork shoulder. Cooking meat on the bone versus boneless will increase required cook times.
  • Cut meat into smaller pieces when cooking with precooked foods such as beans or fruit, or light vegetables such as mushrooms, diced onion, eggplant, or finely minced vegetables. This enables all food to cook at the same rate.
  • When cooking frozen meats, at least 1 cup of warm liquid must first be added. The liquid will act as a “cushion” to prevent sudden temperature changes. An additional 4 hours on LOW or 2 hours on HIGH is typically required. For larger cuts of frozen meat, it may take much longer to defrost and tenderize.

FISH:

Fish cooks quickly and should be added at the end of the cooking cycle during the last fifteen minutes to an hour of cooking.
LIQUID:

  •  For best results and to prevent food from drying or burning, always ensure an adequate amount of liquid is used in the recipe.
  •  Ensure the stoneware is always filled a minimum of ½ full and a maximum of ¾ full, and adhere to recommended cook times.
