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.

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 and stir until all ingredients are warmed
through. Then switch to Slow Cook/Warm 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 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 and stir until all ingredients are warmed
through. Then switch to Slow Cook/Warm until ready to serve.

t8IFODPOWFSUJOHBUSBEJUJPOBMTMPXDPPL
recipe to include Brown/Sauté, the liquid
amount must be increased. This is
because cooking starts at a higher
temperature than it would in a traditional
slow cooker. Recipes vary, but the
approximate guideline is to double the
liquid for a long braise and increase it by
about 50% for a soup or stew. Set the
timer to the lower end of the
recommended time range.
THE STEAMING RACK should be placed
in the UP position to raise food above

will be free of defects in materials and workmanship
under normal home use for three years from the date
of original purchase.
We recommend that you visit our website,
www.cuisinart.com for a fast, efficient way to
complete your product registration. However, product
registration does not eliminate the need for the
consumer to maintain the original proof of purchase

CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ONLY
California law provides that for In-Warranty Service,
California residents have the option of returning a
nonconforming product (A) to the store where it was
purchased or (B) to another retail store that sells
Cuisinart products of the same type. The retail store
shall then, according to its preference, either repair
the product, refer the consumer to an independent
repair facility, replace the product, or refund the
purchase price less the amount directly attributable
to the consumer’s prior usage of the product. If
neither of the above two options results in the
appropriate relief to the consumer, the consumer may
then take the product to an independent repair
facility, if service or repair can be economically
accomplished. Cuisinart and not the consumer will
be responsible for the reasonable cost of such
service, repair, replacement, or refund for
nonconforming products under warranty. California
residents may also, according to their preference,

Cheesecake
There are countless variations for this basic
recipe. You can reserve ¼ of the batter and
stir in cocoa powder (then add it back into
the rest) to make a chocolate swirl.
Once it is cooked you can top it with fresh
fruit or fruit preserves, or you can drizzle
with chocolate or serve with a raspberry
sauce. The options are endless for making
this cheesecake your own.

Dulce de Leche
Although this is readily available in most
supermarkets, it is quite simple to make your
own. The longer you cook it, the richer and
more concentrated the caramel flavor gets.
Setting: Brown/Sauté
Dulce de Leche Bread
Pudding
This dessert is definitely for the sweet tooth.
While you can purchase dulce de leche
from most grocery stores, we found that
homemade is the way to go when it is
the center of your dish.

teaspoon baking soda
1. Put all of the ingredients into the cooking
pot of the Multicooker.
2. Set the unit on Brown/Sauté at 350°F to
bring mixture to a boil, stirring frequently.
Once mixture just comes to a boil, reduce
heat to 250°F so that there is a constant
low simmer. Keep pot uncovered and while
stirring occasionally, allow to simmer until
caramel-colored and thickened, about 1 to
1½ hours.
3. Switch to Slow Cook on Warm if serving
immediately, or bring to room temperature
and store in refrigerator if using at a later
time.

What better ending to a meal than a cup
of rice pudding? The great thing about this
dessert is that it can be served warm out
of the cooking pot or chilled. Chilled rice
pudding does set up and has a different
consistency than when served warm.
If not serving immediately, stir some
extra milk or water into the rice pudding
to make it creamier.
This is our version of the still-popular
flourless chocolate cake. Best of all you don’t
need to turn on the oven!

cup cocoa powder, sifted
teaspoon table salt
teaspoon pure vanilla extract
cup granulated sugar

3. In a medium mixing bowl, beat the sugar
and eggs together until lightened (this takes
a few minutes. The mixture should be a pale
yellow color that almost holds its shape).
4. Once the chocolate mixture has cooled,
stir it into the egg/sugar mixture with the
espresso powder, making sure that it is fully
combined, with no streaks of color.
5. Pour cake batter into the prepared pan. Tap

Cannoli Cheesecake
We make many cheesecakes in the Test

Cooking the applesauce down with
some sugar and spices makes
delicious apple butter.
When fall comes around, nothing is better
than the aroma of applesauce cooking in the

1 medium to large lemon)
1. Put all of the ingredients into the cooking
pot of the Multicooker.
2. Select 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
cooked 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

Trimming the bottoms of the artichokes
ensures that they stand up straight,
so do not skip that step. Also, in addition
to adding flavor, the lemon slices prevent
the artichokes from turning brown during
cooking. Enjoy plain or dip in
a nice lemon oil.
A quick and flavorful way to enjoy
red potatoes. Be patient with flipping
the potatoes – they brown best if they are
not crowded and are left to sit in the hot
cooking pot before turning.

1. Put the water into the cooking pot of the
Multicooker fitted with the steaming rack
and cover.
4. Set the unit to Steam for 50 minutes.
5. Serve immediately.
3. Evenly stuff the garlic slices in between the
leaves of each artichoke. Season each with
lemon juice, pepper and salt. Place one
lemon slice on top of each artichoke.
4. When 5 minutes are remaining, add the
garlic and rosemary, and toss to combine.
Cover again and allow to cook for a few
minutes to soften the garlic.
2. Cut the stems off the artichokes so they are
able to stand. Using a serrated knife, cut the
tops of the artichokes off, and with kitchen
shears, trim the tips of the outer leaves. Pull
leaves back to open the artichokes.
3. Once the potatoes are browned, cover and
let potatoes cook for about 30 minutes, or
until fully cooked.

5. Return the beef to the pot and add enough
stock to come about ¾ of the way up the
sides of the pot and completely covers the
beef (may not need the full 4 cups). Add the
carrots evenly over the beef.

and arrange on a platter. Cover loosely
with foil. Strain the fat from the pan juices.
Sauce can be served as is, or for a slightly
thicker sauce, switch unit to Brown/Sauté at
350°F and allow sauce to simmer for about
5 minutes. After the brisket has rested for
about 10 minutes, slice thinly and serve with
sauce and vegetables.
3. Discard the vegetables. Degrease liquid;
refrigerate overnight in a separate container.
6. Cover and switch the unit to Slow Cook on
Low for 12 hours.
2. Remove the meat, cool and refrigerate,
covered, overnight.
4. Return the chilled liquid to the cooking pot
and set on Brown/Sauté at 350°F. Add the
carrots, potatoes and cabbage. Simmer 30
to 40 minutes, or until very tender.
5. While the vegetables are cooking, bring the
beef to room temperature.
6. Slice meat thinly, surround with vegetables,
flavorful broth on the side.

1. Season the beef well on all sides with ½
teaspoon of the salt, and all the pepper.
2. Put the oil into the cooking pot of the
Multicooker set to Brown/Sauté at 400°F.
Once hot, add the short ribs (may need
to cook in two batches). Cook for 5 to 6
minutes on each side, until very nicely
browned. Remove and reserve (repeat with
remaining if necessary). Carefully wipe up
most fat, leaving only about 2 teaspoons
behind.*
3. Add the vegetables, garlic, thyme and
remaining salt to the pot and reduce the

Green Chile Tamales
Although this meal involves multiple steps,
the final results are well worth the effort.
Note that the recipe makes 24 tamales,
but only 12 can be steamed in the final step
at a time. Either steam them
in two batches, or refrigerate or freeze
the second half.

Green Chile:
2

2
tablespoons vegetable oil
1
medium onion, peeled and finely
chopped
1

chopped
4
garlic cloves, finely chopped
2
tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon

cups masa harina*
3¾
cups water

cups vegetable oil
1
tablespoon plus one teaspoon
baking powder
teaspoons sea or kosher salt
quarts water for steaming

1. Prepare the green chile: Line the cooking
pot of the Multicooker with the poblano
peppers. Cover and set to Brown/Sauté at
400°F. Cook for about 30 minutes, removing
cover to turn every 8 to 10 minutes, until all
sides are charred (time will vary depending
on the size and quantity of the peppers).
Remove, put into a mixing bowl and cover
with plastic wrap. Once cool to the touch,
peel, seed and roughly chop. Reserve.
Carefully clean any of the char from the
bottom of the pot before using for the next
step.
2. Put oil into the cooking pot and again set
to Brown/Sauté at 400°F. When the oil is
hot, add the onion, jalapeño and garlic to
the pot. Stir and sauté until softened and
slightly golden. Stir in the flour and cook
for about 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the
broth, using a nonstick whisk and bring to
simmer until smooth and thickened (about
5 to 7 minutes). Stir in the chicken and the
reserved, chopped poblanos, and switch to
Slow Cook on High for 3 hours.
3. While the chile is cooking, pour boiling
water over the corn husks to soak. Use an
inverted plate to keep the husks submerged
for up to 1 hour.
4. Remove the finished chile from the cooking
pot. It should be moist, not soupy. If
necessary, transfer to a strainer to remove
any excess liquid. Allow cooking pot to cool
enough to handle and clean. Replace in the
unit to steam tamales.
5. Prepare the masa: In a large bowl, using a
hand mixer, mix together the masa, water,
oil, baking powder and salt.
6. Assemble tamales: Drain and rinse corn
husks and lay flat. Hold one in your hand
and spread about ¼ cup of masa dough
onto the husk. You want to cover 2/3 of the
husk toward the wider end. Place about
2 to 4 tablespoons of chile on top of the
masa (this will differ depending on the size
of the corn husks). Fold the narrow end of
the husk up into the tamale and then roll the
sides together to enclose.
7. Repeat with remaining tamales.
8. Fill multicooker pot with 2 quarts of water
and set the unit to Steam fitted with the
steaming rack. Place 12 of the tamales
onto the rack and set timer to 1½ hours.
Check after 1 hour has passed – the husk
should easily peel away from the side and
the masa should be set. Repeat this step,
making sure that there are 2 quarts of water
in the cooking pot, and steam the remaining
tamales.
*Masa harina is flour made from the dried
corn dough used to make tortillas and can
be found in speciality food stores or in the
international aisle of most supermarkets.

Shrimp & Chorizo
Gumbo
Not exactly a purist’s version of gumbo, but a
delicious one just the same!
Settings: Brown/Sauté
Slow Cook
Makes about 14 cups
¼
teaspoon vegetable oil
1
pound chorizo or andouille sausage
cut into ½-inch dice
½
cup dry white wine, divided
½
cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
¾
cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
1
large onion, peeled and finely
chopped
4 to 5 large celery stalks, finely chopped
1
large green pepper, finely chopped
4
garlic cloves, finely chopped
2
tablespoons Creole seasoning
½
teaspoon sea or kosher salt
2
cans (14.5 ounces each) diced
tomatoes, drained
1
bay leaf
10
cups shrimp stock* (see page 7)
10
ounces okra (about 22 to 24 pieces),
cut into ¼-inch slices, fresh or
frozen
pounds large shrimp, peeled,
deveined and rinsed

1. Put the oil into the cooking pot of the
Multicooker set to Brown/Sauté at 400°F.
Once the oil is hot, add the chorizo/sausage
and cook until browned all over, about 6
to 10 minutes. Carefully degrease the pan
either by sopping up the grease with paper
towels, or by removing pot and carefully
pouring off the grease into a separate
container. Return the pot to the base (if
removed). Stir in ¼ cup of the white wine
in order to scrape up all the brown bits that
may have accumulated on the bottom of the
pot. Remove sausage and reserve.
this step as the roux could burn if it is not
occasionally stirred and a low heat is not
maintained.
3. Once the roux has reached the appropriate
color, raise temperature to 325°F, stir in the
onion and celery; sauté for about 5 minutes.
Stir in the green pepper and garlic and
continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Stir
in the remaining ¼ cup of white wine, and
again scrape any brown bits that may have
accumulated on the bottom of the cooking
pot. Stir in Creole seasoning and salt – stir
over heat for 1 minute. Stir in drained, diced
tomatoes and bay leaf. Once all ingredients
are well incorporated, slowly whisk in the
shrimp stock, using a nonstick whisk.
Continue whisking until all ingredients are
incorporated.
4. Add the reserved cooked sausage. Cover
and switch unit to Slow Cook on Low for 4
hours. Once unit switches to Keep Warm,
stir in the okra; switch to Brown/Sauté
at 300°F to simmer for an additional 30
minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning.
5. The final step is to stir in the shrimp. The
shrimp will take only 5 minutes to cook
so wait until just before serving to add.
If desired, set to Warm on Slow Cook
for serving. Tip: Gumbo is best served in
shallow bowls over rice.
*Shrimp stock is a key ingredient for this
dish, and is easy to make with the shells
from the shrimp used in the recipe. However,
if necessary, vegetable broth can be
substituted.
Note: Should there be excessive grease
remaining in the bottom of the pot after
browning sausage in Step 1, refer to the
instructions on page 8 of the instruction book
for removal.

2. Lower the heat to 300°F and add the butter.
Once butter has melted, stir the flour into
the butter with a wooden spoon so that
the mixture comes together – this is called
a roux. Continue stirring roux until it is
smooth and resembles the color of peanut
butter, approximately 30 to 40 minutes. It is

A traditional Indian dish based on lentils.
Each version is different, depending on
ingredients and spices used. This one
adds spinach at the end for some color
and extra nutrients.
Don’t be intimidated by the amount of chili
powder in the recipe; most store-bought
varieties lean on the side of mild. However,
spice lovers can turn up the heat by just
increasing the cayenne or stirring in
some puréed chipotle chiles.

*If you have the time, you can brown the meat
prior to slow cooking. Do this on Brown/Sauté
at 400°F as the first step. If you do this, use
more beef stock in the recipe, closer to 4 cups.
Your yield may be slightly less as well.
**The goal is to have tender meat that falls
apart when finished – a result of a long, slow
cooking process. That being said, if time is of
the essence, you may reduce the cooking time
to 8 to 10 hours.

can simmer in the multicooker the better the
flavors will be. It freezes beautifully, so it can
be enjoyed again.

5. Prepare the gravy. Add the remaining butter
to the cooking pot. Once it is melted and
foamy, stir in the flour. Stirring constantly
with a wooden spoon, cook until the butter/
flour mixture is lightly browned. Once it is
browned, slowly stir in the broth. Bring to a
boil and let cook until thickened, about 10
minutes. Reduce heat to 300°F and stir in
the sour cream.
6. Put all of the reserved meatballs into the
cooking pot with the gravy. Raise heat to
350°F and bring to a boil. Let boil for about
10 minutes to coat the meatballs with the
thickened gravy.
7. Reduce heat to 250°F and keep on this
temperature until ready to serve. (Note: the
meatballs can be served right after boiling
in Step 6. This additional time is optional,
but adds to the flavor and cohesiveness of
the dish.)

1. Put the milk into a large liquid measuring
cup and add the bread. Let soak; reserve.
2. While the bread is soaking, combine the
celery, turkey, onion, salt, pepper, baking
powder, spices and egg in a large mixing
bowl. Squeeze the milk out of the bread
and add the bread (discarding the milk) to
the turkey mixture. With gentle hands, mix
together until fully combined. You want to
mix as little as possible, because if you
over-mix, the meatballs will be tough. Form
into 1-inch meatballs.
3. Put ½ tablespoon of the butter into the
cooking pot of the Multicooker set to
Brown/Sauté at 375˚F. Once the butter melts
and is hot and foamy, add the meatballs in
about four batches so not to overcrowd the
pan (overcrowding the pan will lead to poor
browning and bring down the heat).
4. Turn the meatballs every minute or two until
fully browned. Remove, reserve and repeat
with remaining meatballs. Once all are
browned, remove and reserve together.

minutes total.
2. Once the sausages are browned, put
them into the pot and reduce the heat to
350°F. Add the oil. Once oil is hot, add the
onions and cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until
softened and translucent – this brings out
the sweetness of the onions, which adds to
the dish.
3. Raise the heat again to 400°F and add the
wine. Bring the wine to a boil and let cook
until reduced by about two thirds, stirring
occasionally.
4. Finally, reduce the heat down to a
simmer, to about 300°F, and stir in the
Dijon. Simmer until completely coated
and slightly thickened.
5. Garnish with parsley and serve.

nonstick cooking spray
quart water for steaming, plus more
for assembling wontons
ounces ground pork
tablespoon finely chopped ginger
tablespoons finely chopped scallions
tablespoon reduced-sodium soy
sauce, plus more for serving
teaspoons sesame oil
teaspoons rice vinegar
tablespoons chopped apple, (about
¼ of a peeled and cored apple)
pinch ground mustard
wonton wrappers
1. Lightly coat the steaming rack with nonstick
cooking spray. Reserve.
2. Put 1 quart of water into the cooking pot of
the Multicooker.
3. Put all ingredients except the wonton
wrappers into a large bowl. Gently toss with
hands to fully combine, making sure not to
over-mix or the filling will be too tough.
4. Set up your work station with a small bowl
of water and a pastry brush, large plate or
cutting board, package of wonton wrappers,
and wonton filling. On a clean surface, line
up 3 to 6 wonton wrappers at a time. Place
about ½ tablespoon of filling in the middle
of each wrapper. Brush the edges of the
wrappers with a small amount of water and
fold bottom point up, making a triangle.
Either crimp all edges like a pleat or fold
up the two end points and pinch to seal,
using more water if needed. Continue to fill
the remaining wontons. Keep the prepared
wontons on a clean tray or cutting board
and cover with plastic so as not to dry out.
Transfer all filled dumplings to the steaming
rack and place rack in the unit; cover.
5. Set the unit to Steam. Let steam for about
15 minutes.
6. These are delicious served with soy sauce.
