damaged cord or plug or after the
appliance has malfunctioned or has been
dropped or damaged in any way or is not
operating properly. Return the appliance to
the Customer Service Center (see
Warranty for details) for examination, repair
or mechanical or electrical adjustment.
7. The use of attachments not recommended
by Cuisinart may cause fire, electrical
shock, or risk of injury.

INSTRUCTIONS
FOR HOUSEHOLD
USE ONLY
SPECIAL CORD SET
INSTRUCTIONS
A short power supply cord is provided to
reduce the risks of becoming entangled in or
tripping over a longer cord. Extension cords
may be used if care is exercised.
If an extension cord is used, the marked
electrical rating of the extension cord should
be at least as great as the electrical rating of
the appliance. The longer cord should be
arranged so that it will not drape over the
countertop or tabletop, where it can be pulled
on by children or tripped over unintentionally.
NOTICE
This appliance has a polarized plug (one
prong is wider than the other). As a safety
feature, this plug will fit into a polarized
outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit
fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still
does not fit, contact a qualified electrician.
Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.

OPERATION
COOKING WITHOUT A TIMER
Cooking is simple with the Cook Central®
3-in-1 Multicooker.
If you do not wish to program a time, the

COOKING GUIDELINES
SLOW COOKING
Slow cooking is perfect for foods that require long, slow simmering, such as soups,
stocks, stews, and dried beans. Slow cooking is also ideal for tougher and less
expensive cuts of meat like shoulder and pot roast.
The Simmer and Low settings are usually used for recipes that cook longer. When
starting a dish later in the day, select the High setting to ensure that food is cooked,
warm, and ready when you’d like to eat.
To reheat foods, use Brown/Sauté at 350°F (176°C) and stir until all ingredients are
warmed through. Then switch to Warm on the Slow Cook function until ready to serve.

STEAMING
Steaming is one of the healthiest methods of cooking. No butter or oil is required and
fewer nutrients are lost in the steaming process. Four cups/one quart (0.9L) of water is
used for basic steaming unless otherwise specified.

BROWN/SAUTÉ
Use Brown/Sauté as you would a skillet or sauté pan on the stovetop for a variety of
recipes. Prepare a quickly sautéed skillet dish, or brown food right in the pot as the first
step in many braised or slow-cooked family favorites.
To reheat foods, use Brown/Sauté at 350°F (176°C) and stir until all ingredients are
warmed through. Then switch to Warm on the Slow Cook function until ready to serve.

Cooking
Err
The unit has overheated. Let it cool down and try again. If
problem persists, contact Customer Service at 1-800-472-7606.
Can I set a timer for the Brown/
Sauté function?
Yes. Setting the timer for Brown/Sauté is easy. Simply use the
Time Directionals as you would for any other function. Unit will
shut off when time expires.
Can I change my cooking
function, time or temperature
when the unit is already
cooking?
Yes. Simply use the cooking function, Time and Temperature
Directionals. The unit is already on, so you do not need to hit
the START/STOP button again. In fact, doing so will turn the
unit off. Simply press the new function and/or desired settings;
the unit will switch automatically and adjust itself accordingly.
When should I brown my meat
before slow cooking?
Browning meat before slow cooking is an optional step that
adds flavor and color. You can omit it if time is short.
Exception: ground meats must be browned.
Which position should the rack
be in for steaming?
Place rack in the “up” position for steaming (see page 5).
Can I use the cooking pot on
the stove/in the oven?
The cooking pot was designed specifically for use in this multicooker. We do not suggest using it on the stove or in the oven.
Why isn’t enough liquid in my
slow-cooked dish?
Recipe ingredient amounts may vary if using multiple functions.
See page 8 for details.
Can I put my unit in the
dishwasher?
Cleaning
All removable parts are dishwasher safe.
Do not immerse or put the base of the unit in the dishwasher.
Clean the base and control panel with a clean damp cloth.
The pot is nonstick – why is
food sticking?
Though the pot has a nonstick coating, food residue can burn
onto it, making it difficult to remove.
Food residue is sticking to the
cooking pot surface. How do I
clean it without damaging it?
If food has burned on, fill pot with warm soapy water and allow
to soak before cleaning. If scouring is necessary, use a nonabrasive cleanser or liquid detergent with a nylon pad or brush.

Don’t be intimidated by the amount
of chili powder in this recipe; most storebought varieties lean on the side of mild.
Spice lovers can turn up the heat by
increasing the cayenne or stirring in
some puréed chipotle chiles.

1. Put all of the ingredients into the

2. Set the unit on Brown/Sauté at 350°F
(180ºC) to bring mixture to a boil,
uncovered, stirring frequently. Once
mixture just comes to a boil, reduce heat
to 250°F (120ºC) so it is at a low simmer.
Keep pot uncovered and stir occasionally,
cooking the sauce until it is a dark
caramel color and thickened, but
pourable, about 1 to 1 hour 15 minutes.
1. Put all of the ingredients into the
cooking pot of the Multicooker.
2. Cover and set to Slow Cook on Low
for 4 hours.
3. Once unit switches to Keep Warm,
remove the cinnamon sticks. If a chunky
sauce is desired, use a potato masher to
mash apples to desired consistency. If a
smooth sauce is preferred, transfer
apples to a fine mesh strainer and press
through with the help of a ladle. Once the
apples have passed through the strainer,
discard the skins (if necessary) and return
smooth apples to the cooking pot. Keep
sauce on Keep Warm for serving, or cool
to room temperature and store in the
refrigerator.
3. Switch to Slow Cook on Warm if
serving immediately, or cool to room
temperature and store in refrigerator if
using at a later time.*

The great thing about this dessert is that it

be mushy, if undercooked, they will be
tough and grainy. All pears are different,
so if you find that they need additional
time, add another 30 minutes and check
after every 10 minutes.
