Features
Control knob and
temperature settings
The control knob on the slow cooker offers a low, high
and medium temperature setting for cooking. This
setting allows you to adapt the cooking time to your
convenience.
The MED (MEDIUM) setting is the standard setting for
slow cooking with this product. This gives you an
average of 6-8 hours cooking time.
However if you wish to extend the cooking period, you
can use the LOW setting and if you wish to shorten the
cooking period you can use the HIGH setting.

Before using the slow
cooker for the first time
• This method of cooking is ideal for preparing
tougher cuts of meat, giving them the long, gentle
simmering that ensures that they become tender
and full of flavour.
1 Remove all labels and tags from the product.
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 glass lid allows you to monitor the
cooking progress without interrupting the cooking time.
2 Wash the crock pot and glass lid in hot soapy
water, with a sponge or a dish cloth, rinse thoroughly
and dry.
IMPORTANT
DO NOT IMMERSE THE SLOW COOKER BASE IN
WATER.
Suitable foods for slow
cooking
Please note
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.
• Most foods are suited to slow cooking methods,
however there are a few guidelines that need to be
followed.
Instructions for use
• Make sure all frozen ingredients are well thawed out.
1 Place the base
on a dry, level, heat resistant
surface, away from the edge of the work surface.
Do not use on the floor.
• 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 pot and all ingredients are immersed in the
cooking liquid.
, and
2 Place ingredients into the ceramic crock pot
place the pot into the base. Cover with the glass
lid. If you need to pre-cook or brown foods prior to
slow cooking, this must be done in a pan. Do
not try to brown or pre-cook food in the slow cooker.
• Trim all excess fat from meat before cooking, since
the slow cooking method does not allow fat to
evaporate.
set to the OFFposition, plug
3 With the control knob
the unit into the mains socket.
4 Set the heat control to low, high or medium and
cook for the recommended time given in the recipes
or use the cooking guide in page 6.
• 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.
5 Switch off and unplug the slow cooker after cooking
and remove the crock pot using oven gloves.
• Never leave uncooked food at room temperature in
the slow cooker.
CAUTION
BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE BASE UNIT AFTER
COOKING AS IT REMAINS HOT.
• Do not use the slow cooker to reheat food.
• Uncooked red beans must be soaked and boiled for
at least 10 minutes to remove toxins before use in a
slow cooker.
About slow cooking
• Insert a meat thermometer into joints of roasts,
hams, or whole chickens to ensure they are cooked
to the desired temperature.
• 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. Morphy Richards has brought this style of
cooking right up to date with this modern, cooking
system.
• Traditionally slow cooking has centred on soups
and casseroles but with this oval ceramic crock pot
you can also produce most modern family meals
and dinner party dishes. This pot is convenient as
well as looking good enough to take straight to the
table for serving. (Always place the crock pot on a
heat proof mat or surface).
4
• Most meat and vegetable recipes require 8-10 hours
on low. 4-6 hours on high and 5-7 hours on medium.
Do’s and Don’ts for
the crock pot
• Do not use frozen meat or poultry unless it is
thoroughly thawed out first.
• Authentic stoneware is fired at high temperatures
therefore the crock pot may have minor surface
blemishes, the glass 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’.
• Some ingredients are not suitable for slow cooking.
Pasta, seafood, milk, and cream should be added
towards the end of the cooking time. Many things
can affect how quickly a recipe will cook, water and
fat content, initial temperature of the food and the
size of the food.
• Do not put the crock pot or glass lid in an oven,
freezer, microwave or on a gas/electrical hob.
• Pieces of food cut into small pieces will cook
quicker. A degree of ‘trial and error’ will be required
to fully optimize the potential of your slow cooker.
• Do not pre-heat before adding ingredients.
• Vegetables usually take longer to cook than meat, so
try and arrange vegetables in the lower half of the
pot.
• Do not subject the crock pot to sudden changes in
temperature. Adding cold water to a very hot pot
could cause it to crack.
• After food is cooked switch off and leave covered
with the lid. There will be enough heat in the crock
pot to keep warm for 30 minutes. If you require
longer to keep warm switch to the low setting.
• 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 base of the crock pot that
has to remain unglazed for manufacturing
purposes. This unglazed area is porous, therefore
will soak up water, this should be avoided.
• All food should be covered with a liquid, gravy or
sauce. In a separate pan or jug prepare your
liquid, gravy or sauce and completely cover the
food in the crock pot.
• Do not switch the cooker on when the crock pot is
empty or out of the base.
• Pre-brown meat and onions in a pan to seal in the
juices this also reduces the fat content if separated
before adding to the crock pot. This is not necessary
if the time is limited, but improves the flavour.
Tips for slow cooking
• When cooking joints of meat, ham, poultry etc the
size and shape of the joint is important. Try to keep
the joint in the lower 2/3 of the pot and fully cover with
water. If necessary cut in two pieces. Joint weight
should be kept within the maximum limit.
1 kg
medium sized slow cooker
1.5 kg
large sized slow cooker
• The slow cooker must be at least half full for best
results.
• Slow cooking retains moisture. If you wish to reduce
this, remove the lid after cooking and turn the control
to high (if set to low or medium) and reduce by
simmering for 30 to 45 minutes.
• The lid is not a sealed fit. Don’t remove
unnecessarily as the built up heat will escape. Each
time you remove the lid allow 10 minutes extra
cooking time.
• If cooking soups, leave 5 cm space between the top
of the cook pot and the food surface to allow
simmering.
• Many recipes demand all day cooking, if you do not
have time to prepare food that morning prepare it the
night before and store the food in a covered
container in the fridge. Transfer the food to the crock
pot and add boiling liquid/gravy. Select the setting
low, high or medium.

Chicken and mushroom casserole
IMPORTANT
When buying a joint of meat, make sure that it will fit the slow
cook pot. It should fit into the crock 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.

IMPORTANT
When buying a joint of meat, make sure that it will fit the size
of the slow crock pot. It should fit into the crock 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.
