Using Your Slow Cooker
Wolfgang Puck,
owner of the famous
Spago restaurants and
one of the most influential
chef-restauranteurs in
America, is credited with
reviving California’s rich
culinary heritage. His
cooking innovations,
a result of blending fresh
California ingredients with his classical French techniques, are enjoyed
by world leaders, stars and fellow chefs alike. He established other
trend-setting restaurants like Postrio in San Francisco, Chinois on
Main in Santa Monica, Trattoria del Lupo, and his latest creation, Cut,
a gourmet steakhouse in the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Home chefs can
also share Mr. Puck’s talents through his cookbooks and, of course,
through his appliances!

Advantages of Slow Cooking
Before Your First Use
•
Turn your slow cooker on in the morning and come home to a
complete hot and tasty meal.
•
Do to the amount of cooking time you will find that less expensive
cuts of meat are tenderized and practically fall off the bone.
•
The various flavors of your ingredients will incorporate into each
other due to the length of time that they are slowly cooked.
Carefully unpack the slow cooker and remove all packaging
materials. Wash the removable ceramic pot and tempered glass lid in
warm soapy water or in the dishwasher. To remove any dust that may
have accumulated during packaging, wipe the exterior with a clean,
damp cloth. When cleaning the slow cooker, always ensure that the unit
is not plugged in. Caution: Do not immerse the appliance, cord or
plug in water.
•
Foods will not burn after a full day of cooking since the heat source
comes from the sides and not the bottom.
Important: Do not use harsh or abrasive cleansers on any part of
the appliance.
•
The slow cooker frees your oven and stove top for other uses, and
should always be considered as an option for large gatherings or
holiday meals.
•
Use your slow cooker as a buffet server to keep food warm such as
chili’s, soups, chicken wings, meatballs, etc.

Slow Cooking Tips
•
Natural cheeses will break down during the long cooking process of
your slow cooker. If your recipe calls for cheese always add it during
the last hour of the cooking process. Milk will curdle over long
cooking times, but you can substitute evaporated milk or stir in
heavy cream or sour cream during the last hour as well.
•
Fish and seafood tend to cook faster then meat and should be
added late in any recipe for soup or chowder.
•
Browning meats help reduce the fat content and enhance the
flavor and texture of dishes, but it is not necessary. Because of the
condensation in a slow cooker, reduce the liquid if you are making
a sauce or gravy from it.
•
Root vegetables, like potatoes, carrots, and turnip, should be cut in
small pieces, about 1-inch, and layered on the bottom of the crock so
they will start to cook as soon as the liquid heats.
•
Always defrost meat or poultry before putting it into a slow cooker.
•
Fill cooker no less than half full and no more than two-thirds full.
•
It is recommended that you use whole leaf herbs and spices when
cooking all day. Ground herbs should stirred in only in the last hour
of cooking as they may tend to overpower the ingredients
•
Always soften dried beans first when using with recipes that call for
sugar or acidic foods as they tend to harden the beans. Dried beans
should be boiled in water for 10 minutes, and then allowed to simmer
for at least 1 hour or until softened.
•
Pasta should be cooked al-dente prior to adding to the slow cooker,
unless the recipe states otherwise.
