COOKING RECIPES
Guide To Slow Cooking
Your favorite traditional recipes can be
adapted easily by halving the amount
of liquid and increasing the cooking time
considerably. See the guide below for
suggested cooking times and settings
when adjusting your favorite recipes.
1. Prepare your recipe according to
directions.
2. Place prepared food into the
removable ceramic pot and cover
with the glass lid.
3. Plug the unit into an electrical outlet
and set the time and desired
temperature setting. It is not
necessary to stir the ingredients
during the cooking process.
4. Cooking times may differ by the
amount of ingredients, room
temperature and many other factors.
Adjust the cooking time in reference
to the actual result.
5. Repeatedly removing the glass lid
will decrease the temperature in the
ceramic pot and lengthen the
cooking times.
6. Certain dishes may not cook if the
room temperature is below 41°F or
5°C.
7. When finished, press the "Stop"
button and unplug the unit. You can
serve the meal in the ceramic pot.
8. When removing the glass lid, tilt so
that the opening faces away from
you to avoid being burned by the
steam. Note: The glass lid and the
ceramic pot are hot. Use a cloth or
pot holder to hold them. Exercise
caution to avoid burns.
9. The sides of the metal housing of the
slow cooker get very warm. Use
oven mitts or pot holders to remove
the ceramic pot.
10. Let ceramic pot and glass lid cool
completely before washing.

Slow Cooker
Recipe Time
4-6 hours on
LOW
6-8 hours on
LOW
8-12 hours on
LOW
Note: These times are approximate.
Times can vary depending on ingredients
and quantities in recipes.
All food should be cooked with the glass
lid in place. Each time the lid is lifted,
both the heat and moisture in the food
are lost. Cooking times should thus be
extended by approximately 30 minutes.
Liquid Amounts
When food is cooking in your slow
cooker, very little moisture boils away. To
compensate this, it is advisable to halve
the liquid content of traditional recipes.
However, if after cooking, the liquid
content is excessive, remove the lid and
operate the slow cooker on the high
setting for 30-45 minutes or until the
liquid reduces by the desired amount.

Always allow sufficient time for the food
to cook. It is almost impossible to
overcook food in a slow cooker,
particularly when using the low or keep
warm settings. Most recipes contained

4 lbs.
stewing beef, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/2 cup
flour
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
black pepper
3 cups
beef broth
2 tsp
Worcestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
2
bay leaves
2 tsp
paprika
8
small potatoes, diced
4
small onions, diced
4
celery stalks, sliced
• Many recipes call for cooking all day.
You can also prepare the recipe the
night before by placing all ingredients
in the ceramic pot, cover and
refrigerate overnight. In the morning,
simply place the ceramic pot in the
slow cooker and select the time and
temperature setting.
• Meat & Poultry require at least 7 to 8
hours on LOW. Do not use frozen
meat in the slow cooker. Thaw any
meat or poultry before slow cooking.
• Trim all visible fat from meat or poultry.
• Cook dried beans 1-2 hours on high
setting, then add remaining ingredients,
cook on low for the remaining time.
• When cooking curries and casseroles,
richer, more intensive flavors will
develop when the first stage is
prepared by traditional methods, i.e.
brown the onions, meat and spices
first in a non-stick pan.
Little or no stirring is required when using
the low or keep warm setting. when using
the high setting, stirring ensures even
flavor distribution.

•
form a tight fit on the ceramic pot but
should be centered on the ceramic pot
for best results. Do not remove the
glass cover unnecessarily - this will
result in major heat loss. Do not cook
without the glass cover in place.
Stirring is not normally needed when
using a slow cooker. However, if
cooking on high, you may want to stir
occasionally.
Slow cooking retains most of the
moisture in foods. If a recipe results
in too much liquid at the end of the
cooking time, remove glass cover,
turn the control knob to high, and
reduce the liquid by simmering. This
will take 30-45 minutes.
The slow cooker should be at least
half-filled for best results.
If cooking soups or stews, leave a
2-inch space between the top of the
ceramic pot and the food so that the
food may be allowed to simmer.
