If you can not find your slow cooker model on the chart above or your
unit is a brand other than Rival, set your Smart-Part™ Module to Setting
C on first use. Cooking “doneness” varies by personal preference. If you

C, adjust your Smart-Part™ Module to Setting B or A on next use. Always
make sure food is fully cooked before serving.

1. Working from left to right on your Smart-Part™ Module, first choose
setting C, B or A depending on your model.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
Q “What if the food isn’t done after cooking the amount of time
recommended in the recipe?”
A This is due to voltage variations which are commonplace
everywhere; altitude; or even extreme humidity. Personal preference
also plays a part in the “doneness” of food. The slight fluctuations
in power do not have a noticeable effect on most appliances;
however, it can slightly alter the cooking times in the Smart-Part™
Module due to extended cooking times. If this happens, simply
adjust the Smart-Part™ Module setting on next use.
Q “Must the slow cooker be covered? Is it necessary to stir?”
A Cook with the cover on. The slow cooker will not recover heat
losses quickly when cooking. Significant amounts of heat escape
whenever the lid is removed; therefore the cooking time must be
extended. Avoid frequent removal of the cover for checking
cooking progress or stirring. Never remove cover during the first 2
hours when baking breads or cakes. It is not necessary to stir while
cooking.
Q “My Rival or other brand model number is not listed on your
model number chart. What should I set it on?”
A Start on setting “C”, and adjust to “B” or “A” if needed on your
next cooking cycle.
