About Slow
cooking
•
•
•
Slow cooking has always
been the best way to
prepare a nutritious hot meal
with minimum preparation
and maximum free time
away from the kitchen.
Slow cooking gives you
convenient, versatile and
flavoursome food. The longer
cooking times allow better
distribution of flavours,
giving them time to blend
and season the food. A slow
cooker heats food gently,
making it a great way to
cook meats - in particular,
less expensive cuts, such as
stewing beef, which are
tenderised through the long
cooking process. Remember
there are no limits to the
potential uses of your slow
cooking, only in your
imagination!
IMPORTANT: The slow
cooker works by building up
heat and maintaining an
even temperature. To get the
best cooking results, do not
remove the lid during
cooking, since this will lose
heat and therefore slow
down the cooking time. The
transparent lid allows you to
monitor the cooking
progress without interrupting
the cooking time.
USING FOR
THE FIRST TIME
Before use, wash the
ceramic pot and glass lid in
hot soapy water, rinse
thoroughly and dry.
During initial use, you may
notice a slight odour due to
the burning off of
manufacturing residues. This
is completely normal and will
disappear after a few uses.
INSTRUCTIONS
FOR USE
•
Refer to the cooking times
required in the recipes.
•
Assemble the slow cooker

space must be left between
the top of the ceramic pot
and the food surface to
allow for simmering. We
recommend 2.5cm (1 inch)
of space is left.
•
We advise you to brown the
meat prior to slow cooking,
this must be done in a pan.
Do not try and brown food in
the slow cooker.
•
Plug in the appliance, four
small dashes will appear on
the display. This indicates
the product is in standby
mode.

started the display will begin
to count down, indicating
the amount of time
remaining.
•
Never leave uncooked food
at room temperature in the
slow cooker.
KEEP WARM
•
When cooking has finished,
the display will show zero
hours and minutes and will
automatically switch into
Keep Warm function.
•
A green indicator light will
appear and the display will
count up in minutes to a
maximum of 2 hours until
you are ready to serve.
•
Food should not be kept in a
warm state for more than 2
hours, if food is left over and
you need to keep it, allow
the food to cool and freeze.
SERVING
•
To serve the food, switch off
at the power socket and
unplug.
•
We recommend food is
served directly from the slow
cooker. If you choose to
remove the ceramic pot,
oven gloves must be worn
and great care must be
taken as the pot is heavy.
•
Always place the ceramic
pot on a heat proof mat or
surface if removed.

SLOW COOKING
TIPS
•
In use tips
•
•
•
•
•
Removing the lid will allow
valuable heat to escape
reducing the efficiency of the
slow cooker. If you remove
the lid more than a couple of
times you will need to allow
10 – 15 minutes extra
cooking time.
If you are cooking half
quantities, time can be
reduced usually to 2/3rds, so
if a recipe calls for 10 hours
on Low, this will require 7
hours.
The food will be fully cooked
using the time guide in the
recipes, depending on
personal preference if you
find you need to cook
further to soften root
vegetables, if set to Low
simply select High and cook
for a further 30 minutes.
•
•
•
8
If adapting an existing recipe
from conventional cooking,
you may need to cut down
on the amount of liquid
used. Liquid will not
evaporate from the slow
cooker to the same extent
as with conventional
cooking.
Browning meat before slow
cooking helps seal in juices
and reduces fat separation
during slow cooking.
Where stock is required use
boiling water, this will aid the
cooking process;
•
Trim excess fat from meat
before cooking as slow
cooking does not allow fat to
evaporate.
•
Slow cooking gives you
flavoursome food. The longer
cooking times allow better
distribution of flavours,
giving them time to blend
and season the food –
particularly less expensive
cuts of meat such as
stewing beef which is
tenderised through the long
cooking process.
•
When cooking joints of
meat, ham, poultry, the size
and shape of the joint is
important. Try to keep the
joint in the lower two thirds
of the ceramic pot and fully
cover with water. If
necessary, cut into 2 pieces.
•
Insert a meat thermometer
into joints of roasts or hams
to ensure they are cooked to
the desired temperature.
Make sure all frozen
ingredients are thoroughly
thawed before use.
UK Helpline 0844 871 0956
In most recipes in this
book, the meat ingredients
are browned first to
improve their appearance
and flavour.
If you choose to skip this
step, simply add your meat
into the slow cooker and
cover with boiling stock. You
will need to increase the
recipe cooking time. For
High add 1 hour, for Low
add 2 hours.
•
Preparing food tips –
general
•
Preparing food tips –
vegetables / pulses
•
Cut root vegetables into
small even pieces, as they
take longer to cook than
meat. They should be gently
sauted for 2-3 minutes
before slow cooking. Ensure
that root vegetables are
always placed at the bottom
of the ceramic pot and all
ingredients are immersed in
the cooking liquid.
•
Uncooked red beans must
be soaked and boiled for at
least 10 minutes to remove
toxins before use in a slow
cooker.
Preparing food tips –
meat
After cooking if there is too
much moisture in your food,
remove the lid and turn the
control to High if set to Low
and reduce the moisture by
simmering for 30 minutes.
Alternatively if the recipe
allows, use cornflower to
thicken the liquid.
Do not use the slow cooker
to reheat food.
Some ingredients are not
suitable for slow cooking
such as; pasta, seafood,
milk and cream. These
should be added towards
the end of cooking.
Replacement Parts 0844 873 0722
CARE AND
CLEANING
•
Allow the ceramic pot and
lid to cool before washing.
•
The ceramic pot and glass
lid may be washed in a
dishwasher or washed by
hand in hot soapy water. Do
not use harsh abrasive
cleaners.
•
Do not immerse the
electrical base or plug in
water, or any other liquid. To
clean the base, unplug and
wipe clean with a dish cloth.
CARE FOR THE
CERAMIC POT
•
Authentic stoneware is fired
at high temperatures,
therefore, the ceramic pot
may have minor surface
blemishes, the lid may rock
slightly due to these
imperfections. Low heat
cooking does not produce
steam, so there will be little
heat loss. Due to normal
wear and tear through the
products life, the outer
surface may start appearing
‘crazed’.
•
Do not put the ceramic pot
or lid in an oven, freezer,
microwave or on a
gas/electrical hob.
Ireland Helpline 1800 409 119
48724 Rev1:48724 29/04/2009 13:47 Page 9
•
Do not pre heat before
adding ingredients.
•
Do not subject the pot to
sudden changes in
temperature. Adding cold
water to a very hot pot could
cause it to crack.
•
•
Do not allow the pot to
stand in water for a long
time (you can leave water in
the pot to soak). There is an
area on the ceramic pot that
has to remain unglazed for
manufacturing purposes.
This unglazed area is
porous, therefore will soak
up water, this should be
avoided.
Do not switch the cooker on
when the ceramic pot is
empty or out of the base.
Cooking time
range
Some recipes in the book
include a time range (eg. 4-6
hours.) This indicates the
recipe will be cooked in 4
hours, however it is still
acceptable to leave the food
cooking for 6 hours.

Method
Put the beef into a pan and
cover with cold water. Add
all the remaining ingredients,
cover and bring to a simmer.
Season well and then
transfer all the ingredients to
the ceramic pot. Place the
ceramic pot in the slow
cooker base. Place the lid
onto the slow cooker. Cook
for approximately 4 hours on
High or for 10 hours on Low.
Take the beef out of the slow
cooker with a slotted spoon
and allow to cool for 10
minutes. The cooking liquid
can be used as a base to
make gravy. Cut the beef
into slices and spoon a little
of the cooking liquid over.
Serve with vegetables and
garnish with fresh parsley.
IMPORTANT: When buying a
joint of meat, make sure that
it will fit the ceramic pot. It
should fit into the ceramic
pot so that when it is
covered with liquid, it will still
be 2.5cm below the rim of
the pot. The joint must not
stick out above the rim and
there should be enough
room to cover the meat with
water. The shape of the meat
is just as important as the

breadcrumbs before serving.
IMPORTANT: When buying a
joint of meat, make sure that
it will fit the size of the
ceramic pot. It should fit into
the ceramic pot so that
when it is covered with liquid
it will still be 2.5cm below
the rim of the pot. The joint
must not stick out above the
rim and there should be
enough room to cover the
meat with water. The shape
of the meat is just as
important as the weight.
