GETTING TO KNOW YOUR 8 QT SLOW COOKER
When turned on for the first time, your
new slow cooker may emit an odor for
up to 10 minutes. This is due to the
initial heating of the materials used in
making the slow cooker. The odor is
safe and should not reoccur after initial
heating.
Before using your 8 Quart Slow Cooker,
remove any labels, stickers or tags that
may be attached to the appliance.

Cut the beef into 6 serving size pieces. Layer half of the beef, mushrooms and
onion rings in the slow cooker; repeat layers. Pour soup over ingredients in slow
cooker. Cover and cook on Low setting for 8 to 10 hours or until beef is tender and
no longer pink.
Before serving, in medium bowl, combine stuffing mix, contents of seasoning
packet, melted butter or margarine and 1/2 cup of the liquid from the slow cooker;
toss to mix. Place stuffing on top of contents in slow cooker. Increase heat setting
to High. Cover and cook an additional 20 minutes or until stuffing is fluffy. Sprinkle

Before Using Your Slow Cooker
Prior To First Use, Clean The Unit Thoroughly
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Before using for the first time, wash the cover and the ceramic pot in hot, soapy
water.
Do not immerse metal housing in water or any other liquid.
Rinse and dry thoroughly.
Plug cord into a 120 volt AC outlet.
Always cook with the cover on and the ceramic pot in position. Remember that
frequent lifting of the cover delays the cooking time.
When cooking a meat and vegetable combination, place the meat in the bottom of
the ceramic pot.
Unplug the slow cooker when cooking is complete. Before cleaning, allow to cool
completely.
The ceramic pot cannot withstand the shock of sudden temperature changes.
Do not use frozen meat or poultry in a slow cooker. Thaw any meat or poultry
before slow cooking.
CAUTION: Be careful when adding additional liquids to ceramic pot Never add cold liquids as this might cause the ceramic pot to
crack. Always warm the liquids before adding.
Setting the Temperature
The slow cooker has been developed with a wrap-around side element concealed in
the unit. This element provides the low, even temperature that makes lengthy
cooking times possible. As a result of the wrap-around element, food will not stick to
the base of the ceramic pot despite the long cooking time and the need to stir food is
almost unnecessary. As food cooks just below boiling point, very little steam is given
off and there is next to no evaporation, all of which provides flavorful, tender and
moist results, even with budget cuts of meat.
LOW: The low heat setting gently
simmers food for an extended
period of time without overcooking
or burning. No stirring is required
when using this setting. Ideal for
vegetable dishes and re-heating.
HI: The high heat setting is used
when baking or cooking dried
beans and will cook food in half the
time required for the low setting. As
food will boil when cooked on the
high setting, occasional stirring of
stews and casseroles will improve
the flavor distribution. Food should
be monitored when using the high
setting, just like cooking in a pot
with the lid on.
WARM:
The warm setting is for holding the
prepared recipe at a perfect
serving temperature. This
setting should only be used after a
recipe has been thoroughly
cooked.
Low
Hi
If food has been
refrigerated, it
must be heated Off

on low or high

WARNING: Do Not Cook on

GUIDE TO SLOW COOKING
STIRRING FOOD
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 warm
settings. Most recipes contained within
this book can be cooked on any one of
the temperature settings, however
cooking times will vary accordingly.
Each recipe in this book will give
specific instructions indicating the
appropriate temperature setting as well
as the suggested cooking times.
Little or no stirring is required when using
the low or warm setting. When using the
high setting, stirring ensures even flavor
distribution.

TIPS FOR SLOW COOKING
• The cover of the slow cooker does not
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.

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, set the cooking
mode to “High”, and reduce the liquid by
simmering. This will take 30-45 minutes.
The slow cooker should be at least halffilled 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.
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 temperature setting.
