SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
GROUNDING
WARNING!
Improperly connecting the grounding wire can result in the risk of electric shock.
Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is
properly grounded. Do not modify the power cord plug provided with the appliance.
Never remove the grounding prong from the plug. Do not use the appliance if the
power cord or plug is damaged. If damaged, have it repaired by a service facility
before use. If the plug will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a
qualified electrician.
GROUNDED APPLIANCES: APPLIANCES WITH THREE PRONG PLUGS
1.
Appliances marked with “Grounding Required” have a three wire cord and three prong
grounding plug. The plug must be connected to a properly grounded outlet. If the
appliance should electrically malfunction or break down, grounding provides a low
resistance path to carry electricity away from the user, reducing the risk of electric
shock. (See Figure A.)
2.
The grounding prong in the plug is connected through the green wire inside the cord
to the grounding system in the appliance. The green wire in the cord must be the
only wire connected to the appliance’s grounding system and must never be attached
to an electrically “live” terminal. (See Figure A.)
SKU 54811
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353
PAGE 8
3.
Your appliance must be plugged into an appropriate outlet, properly installed and
grounded in accordance with all codes and ordinances. The plug and outlet
should look like the one in the following illustration. (See Figure A.)

Appliances marked “Double Insulated” do not require grounding. They have a
special double insulation system which satisfies OSHA requirements and complies
with the applicable standards of Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., the Canadian
Standard Association, and the National Electrical Code. (See Figure B.)
5.
Double insulated appliances may be used in either of the 120 volt outlets shown

EXTENSION CORDS
1.
Grounded appliances require a three wire extension cord. Double Insulated
appliances can use either a two or three wire extension cord.
2.
As the distance from the supply outlet increases, you must use a heavier gauge
extension cord. Using extension cords with inadequately sized wire causes a
serious drop in voltage, resulting in loss of power and possible tool damage.
(See Figure C.)
3.
The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater the capacity of the cord. For
example, a 14 gauge cord can carry a higher current than a 16 gauge cord.
(See Figure C.)
4.
When using more than one extension cord to make up the total length, make sure
each cord contains at least the minimum wire size required.
(See Figure C.)
5.
If you are using one extension cord for more than one appliance, add the nameplate
amperes and use the sum to determine the required minimum cord size.
(See Figure C.)
6.
Make sure your extension cord is properly wired and in good electrical condition.
Always replace a damaged extension cord or have it repaired by a qualified electrician
before using it.
7.
Protect your extension cords from sharp objects, excessive heat, and damp or wet
areas.

SKU 54811
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353
PAGE 12
9.
CAUTION! When handling the Slow Cooker, always use oven mittens.
10. NOTE: When the Slow Cooker is plugged in, and its Temperature Control Knob
(3) is set to “Keep Warm”, “Low”, or “High”, the unit’s warming element will
constantly be on. When finished cooking, make sure to turn the Temperature
Control Knob to its “OFF” position and unplug the Power Cord from its electrical
outlet.
11. When finished using the Slow Cooker, make sure to allow the appliance to completely
cool. Then immerse the Inner Pot (4) and Lid (5) in warm, clean water and thoroughly
wash with anti-bacterial soap. Then, dry. Also, wash the exterior surface of the Outer
Shell (1) with a clean, damp cloth and anti-bacterial soap. Then, dry. DO NOT
IMMERSE THE OUTER SHELL IN ANY LIQUID.
12. Make sure to store the Slow Cooker in a clean, dry, safe location out of reach of

TIPS ON COOKING WITH THE SLOW COOKER
1.
The Lid (5) of the Slow Cooker should be centered on the Inner Pot (4) for best
results when cooking. Do not remove the Lid unecessarily, as this results in heat
loss.
2.
Stirring is not necessary when cooking on “Low”. However, when cooking on
“High” you may want to stir occasionally.
3.
Slow cooking retains most of the moisture in foods. If a recipe results in too
much liquid at the end of cooking time, remove the Lid (5). Turn the Temperature
Control Knob (3) to its “High” setting, and reduce the liquid by simmering. This
will take about 30 to 45 minutes.
4.
The Slow Cooker should be at least half-filled for best results. Reduce cooking
time if below half-filled.
5.
If cooking soups or stews, leave a 2 inch distance between the top of the Inner
Pot (4) and the food so that the recipe can come to a simmer.
6.
Many recipes call for cooking all day. If your morning schedule doesn’t allow time
to prepare a recipe, do so the night before. Place all ingredients in the Inner Pot
(4). Cover the Inner Pot with its Lid (5), and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, simply place the Inner Pot in the Outer Shell (1) of the Slow Cooker, and
select the appropriate heat level.
SKU 54811
For technical questions, please call 1-800-444-3353
PAGE 13
7.
Slow Cookers have very little evaporation. If making your favorite soup, stew, or sauce,
reduce the liquid or water called for in the original recipe. If too thick, liquids can be
added later.
8.
If cooking a vegetable type casserole, add liquid in the recipe to prevent scorching on
the sides of the Inner Pot (4).
9.
Some ingredients are not suited for extended cooking in the Slow Cooker. Pasta,
seafood, milk, cream, or sour cream should be added to the recipe 2 hours before
serving. Evaporated milk or condensed soups are perfect for the Slow Cooker.
10. Many things can affect how quickly a recipe will cook. The water and fat content of the
food, the temperature of the food, and the size of the food will all affect the cooking
time. Food cut into small pieces will cook faster than a whole roast or poultry.
11. Most meat and vegetable combinations require at least 7 hours on the “Low” setting.
12. The higher the fat content of the meat, the less liquid is needed. If cooking meat
with a high fat content, place thick onion slices underneath so the meat will not
sit and cook in the fat.
INSPECTION, MAINTENANCE, AND CLEANING
1.
WARNING! Make sure the Temperature Control Knob (3) of the Slow Cooker is
in its “OFF” position, the Power Cord (6) is unplugged from its electrical outlet, and
the appliance has completely cooled before performing any inspection, maintenance,
or cleaning procedures.
2.
Before each use, inspect the general condition of the Slow Cooker. Check for cracked
or broken parts, damaged electrical wiring, and any other condition that may affect its
safe operation. If abnormal noise or vibration occurs, have the problem corrected
before further use. Do not use damaged equipment.
3.
After each use, immerse the Inner Pot (4) and Lid (5) in warm, clean water and
thoroughly wash with anti-bacterial soap. Then, dry.
4.
After each use, wash the exterior surface of the Outer Shell (1) with a clean, damp
cloth and anti-bacterial soap. Then, dry. Do not use abrasive cleaners, as they will
damage the exterior of the appliance. DO NOT IMMERSE THE OUTER SHELL IN
ANY LIQUID.
