IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always
be followed, including the following:
1. READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE USING.
2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
3. To protect against electrical shock, do not immerse cord, plug, or
heating base in water or other liquid.
4. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near
children.
5. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Use oven
mitts or allow to cool before putting on or taking off parts.
6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the
appliance malfunctions or has been damaged in any manner. Return
appliance to the manufacturer (see warranty) for examination, repair, or
adjustment.
7. Do not use outdoors.
8. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or counter or touch heated
surfaces.
9. Do not place on or near a hot gas or electric burner or in a heated
oven.
10. Extreme caution must be used when moving an appliance containing
hot oil or other hot liquids. Always use oven mitts when moving your
heated slow cooker.
11. Do not use appliance for other than intended use.
12. Avoid sudden temperature changes, such as adding refrigerated foods
or cold liquids into a heated pot.
13. To disconnect, press/switch OFF then remove plug from wall outlet.
14. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the
manufacturer may cause injuries.
15. Keep 6 inches clear from the wall and 6 inches clear on all sides.
16. CAUTION: To prevent damage or shock hazard, do not cook directly in
the heating base. Cook only in the stoneware provided.
This appliance is for HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY.
There are no user-serviceable parts inside. Do not attempt to service this product.
A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the hazards resulting from
entanglement or tripping over a longer cord. AN EXTENSION CORD MAY BE
USED WITH CARE; HOWEVER, THE MARKED ELECTRICAL RATING SHOULD
BE AT LEAST AS GREAT AS THE ELECTRICAL RATING OF THE SLOW COOKER.
The extension cord should not be allowed to drape over the counter or
tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over unintentionally.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Some countertop and table surfaces are not
designed to withstand the prolonged heat generated by certain
appliances. Do not set the heated unit on a finished wood table. We
recommend placing a hot pad or trivet under your slow cooker to
prevent possible damage to the surface.
NOTE: During initial use of this appliance, some slight smoke and/or
odor may be detected. This is normal with many heating appliances and
will not recur after a few uses.
NOTE: Please use caution when placing your stoneware on a ceramic or
smooth glass cook top stove, countertop, table, or other surface. Due to
the nature of the stoneware, the rough bottom surface may scratch some
surfaces if caution is not used. Always place protective padding under
stoneware before setting on table or countertop.

POLARIZED PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider
than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock,
this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only
one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet,
reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do
not attempt to modify the plug in any way. If the plug fits loosely into the
AC outlet or if the AC outlet feels warm do not use that outlet.

HOW TO USE YOUR CROCK-POT® SLOW COOKER
Place the stoneware into the heating base, add your ingredients to
the stoneware, and cover with the lid.
Plug in your Crock-Pot® slow cooker. The POWER light flashes
indicating that the unit is plugged in, but not turned on.
Press the SELECT button to choose a programmed time and temperature.
Cook time options include 4 or 6 hours on HIGH, or 8 or 10 hours on
LOW. The corresponding light illuminates, the slow cooker heats, and the
internal timer starts counting down the time.
NOTE: WARM is ONLY for keeping already cooked food at the
perfect serving temperature until you are ready to eat. DO NOT cook
on the WARM setting.
When the cooking time has completed, the Crock-Pot® slow cooker
automatically shifts to the WARM setting and the WARM light illuminates.
NOTE: We do not recommend using the WARM setting for more
than 4 hours.
To turn the Crock-Pot® slow cooker off, press the OFF button and
unplug the unit from the outlet.
USAGE NOTES:
• If there is a power outage, when the power is restored the display and
lights blink. All slow cooker settings have been cleared and must be
reset. However, the food may be unsafe to eat. If you are unaware of
how long the power was out, we suggest you discard the food.

HOW TO USE YOUR CROCK-POT® SLOW COOKER (CONT.)
For recipes that require a range of times, select the time closest to the
setting on your Crock-Pot® slow cooker. For instance, to cook a recipe
calling for a cooking time of 7 to 9 hours on LOW, set your Crock-Pot®
slow cooker to 8 hours.
To avoid over- or under-cooking, always fill the stoneware ½ to ¾ full to
conform to recommended cook times (with the exception of certain
cakes and custards, and as guided otherwise in our slow cooker recipes).
Do not overfill stoneware. To prevent spillover, do not fill stoneware
higher than ¾ full.
Always cook with the lid on for the recommended time. Do not remove
the lid during the first two hours of cooking, to allow the heat to build up
efficiently.
Always wear oven mitts when handling the lid or stoneware.
Unplug when cooking is done and before cleaning.
Removable stoneware is ovenproof and microwave safe. Do not use
removable stoneware on gas or electric burner or under broiler. Refer to
chart below.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR CROCK-POT® SLOW COOKER
• ALWAYS turn your slow cooker off, unplug it from the electrical outlet,
and allow it to cool before cleaning.
• The lid and stoneware can be washed in the dishwasher or with hot,
soapy water. Do not use abrasive cleaning compounds or scouring
pads. A cloth, sponge, or rubber spatula will usually remove residue.
To remove water spots and other stains, use a non-abrasive cleaner or
vinegar.
• As with any fine ceramic, the stoneware and lid will not withstand
sudden temperature changes. Do not wash the stoneware or lid with
cold water when they are hot.
• The outside of the heating base may be cleaned with a soft cloth and
warm, soapy water. Wipe dry. Do not use abrasive cleaners.
CAUTION: Never immerse the heating base in water or other liquid.
• No other servicing should be performed.

HINTS AND TIPS
PASTA AND RICE
• For best rice results, use long grain converted rice or a specialty
rice as the recipe suggests. If the rice is not cooked completely
after the suggested time, add an extra 1 to 1½ cups of liquid per
cup of cooked rice and continue cooking for 20 to 30 minutes.
• For best pasta results, first partially cook the pasta in a pot of
boiling water until just tender. Add the pasta to the Crock-Pot®
slow cooker during the last 30 minutes of cook time.
BEANS
• Beans must be softened completely before combining with sugar
and/or acidic foods. Sugar and acid have a hardening effect on
beans and will prevent softening.
• Dried beans, especially red kidney beans, should be boiled before
adding to a recipe.
• Fully cooked canned beans may be used as a substitute for dried
beans.
VEGETABLES
• Many vegetables benefit from slow cooking and are able to
develop their full flavor. They tend not to overcook in your slow
cooker as they might in your oven or on your stovetop.
• When cooking recipes with vegetables and meat, place vegetables
in slow cooker before meat. Vegetables usually cook slower than
meat in the slow cooker.
• Place vegetables near the sides or bottom of the stoneware to
facilitate cooking.
HERBS AND SPICES
• Fresh herbs add flavor and color, but should be added at the end of
the cooking cycle as the flavor will dissipate over long cook times.
-8-
Page 9
HINTS AND TIPS (CONT.)
• Ground and/or dried herbs and spices work well in slow cooking
and may be added at the beginning.
• The flavor power of all herbs and spices can vary greatly depending
on their particular strength and shelf life. Use herbs sparingly, taste
at end of cook cycle and adjust seasonings just before serving.
MILK
• Milk, cream, and sour cream break down during extended cooking.
When possible, add during the last 15 to 30 minutes of cooking.
• Condensed soups may be substituted for milk and can cook for
extended times.
SOUPS
• Some soup recipes call for large amounts of water. Add other soup
ingredients to the slow cooker first then add water only to cover.
If thinner soup is desired, add more liquid at serving time.
MEATS
• Trim fat, rinse well, and pat meat dry with paper towels.
• Browning meat in a separate skillet or broiler allows fat to be drained
off before slow cooking and also adds greater depth of flavor.
• Meat should be positioned so that it rests in the stoneware
without touching the lid.
• For smaller or larger cuts of meat, alter the amount of vegetables
or potatoes so that the stoneware is always ½ to ¾ full.
• The size of the meat and the recommended cook times are just
estimates and can vary depending upon the specific cut, type, and
bone structure. Lean meats such as chicken or pork tenderloin
tend to cook faster than meats with more connective tissue and
fat such as beef chuck or pork shoulder. Cooking meat on the
bone versus boneless will increase required cook times.

7/20/10
6:21 PM
Page 11
HINTS AND TIPS (CONT.)
• Cut meat into smaller pieces when cooking with precooked foods
such as beans or fruit, or light vegetables such as mushrooms,
diced onion, eggplant, or finely minced vegetables. This enables
all food to cook at the same rate.
• When cooking frozen meats, at least 1 cup of warm liquid must
first be added. The liquid will act as a "cushion" to prevent sudden
temperature changes. An additional 4 hours on LOW or 2 hours
on HIGH is typically required. For larger cuts of frozen meat, it
may take much longer to defrost and tenderize.
FISH
• Fish cooks quickly and should be added at the end of the cooking
cycle during last fifteen minutes to hour of cooking.
LIQUID
• For best results and to prevent food from drying or burning,
always ensure an adequate amount of liquid is used in the recipe.
• Ensure the stoneware is always filled a minimum of ½ full and a
maximum of ¾ full, and conform to recommended cook times.
