IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
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, remove plug from wall outlet.
14. The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the manufacturer
may cause injuries.
15. Keep 6 inches from 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.

SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
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.
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.
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.

Heating Base
PREPARING YOUR CROCK-POT® SLOW COOKER FOR USE
Before you use your slow cooker, remove all packaging components and
wash the lid and stoneware with warm soapy water and dry thoroughly.
Assembly
1. Place stoneware into the heating base.
2. Lower the lid horizontally down onto the stoneware.
HOW TO USE YOUR SLOW COOKER
1. Place the stoneware into the heating base, add your ingredients to
the stoneware, and cover with the lid (See Fig. 1).
2. Simply plug the unit in.
3. When cooking is done, unplug your slow cooker and allow it to
cool before cleaning.

USAGE NOTES:
• There is one temperature setting. When plugged in, the temperature
of this unit is equivalent to the LOW setting on Crock-Pot® slow
cookers that have HIGH and LOW settings.
• If you suspect that the power has gone out during the day, the food
may be unsafe to eat. If you are unaware of how long the power was
out, we suggest you discard the food inside.
• For recipes that require a range of times, select the mid-range time.
For instance, to cook a recipe calling for a cooking time of 7 to 9
hours on LOW, set your slow cooker to 8 hours.
• To avoid over-or under-cooking, always fill the stoneware 1⁄2 to 3⁄4 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 3⁄4 full.
• Always cook with the lid on for the recommended time. Do not
remove the lid during the first two hours of cooking.
• 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.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR 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 any
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 with cold
water when it is 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
• If you are converting a recipe that calls for uncooked noodles,
macaroni, or pasta, cook them on the stovetop just until slightly tender
before adding to slow cooker.
• If you are converting a recipe that calls for cooked rice, stir in raw rice
with other ingredients; add 1⁄4 cup extra liquid per 1⁄4 cup of raw rice.
Use long grain converted rice for best results in all-day cooking.
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. Cover the beans with three times their volume of
unsalted water and bring to a boil. Boil 10 minutes, reduce heat, cover
and allow to simmer 11⁄2 hours or until beans are tender. Soaking in
water, if desired, should be completed before boiling. Discard water
after soaking or boiling.
• Fully cooked canned beans may be used as a substitute for dried beans.
VEGETABLES
• Many vegetables benefit from slow cook times and low temperatures and
are able to develop their full flavor, specifically those with roots. They
tend not to overcook in your slow cooker as they might in your oven or
on your stovetop.
• When cooking recipes with rooted vegetables and meat, place
vegetables in slow cooker before meat. Rooted vegetables usually cook
slower than meat in the slow cooker.

HINTS AND TIPS
• Place rooted vegetables near the sides or bottom of the stoneware
to facilitate cooking. Stir in chopped or sliced vegetables with other
ingredients.
• Because eggplant has a very strong flavor, you should parboil or sauté
the eggplant before adding it to the slow cooker.
HERBS AND SPICES
• Fresh herbs add flavor and color when added at the end of the cooking
cycle but for dishes with shorter cook times, hearty, fresh herbs such as
rosemary and thyme hold up well. If added at beginning, many fresh
herbs’ flavor will dissipate over long cook times. Ground and/or dried
herbs and spices work well in slow cooking and may be added at
beginning, but use sparingly and taste at end of cook cycle and correct
seasonings including salt and pepper. The flavor power of all herbs and
spices can vary greatly depending on their particular strength and shelf
life and so it is always recommended to taste and adjust seasonings just
before serving.
LIQUIDS
• 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 1⁄2 full and a
maximum of 3⁄4 full, and conform to recommended cook times.
MILK
• Milk, cream, and sour cream break down during extended cooking.
When possible, add during last 15 to 30 minutes of cooking.
• Condensed soups may be substituted for milk and can cook for
extended times.
8
HINTS AND TIPS
SOUPS
• Some soup recipes call for 2 to 3 quarts 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.
• If milk-based soup recipes have no other liquid for initial cooking,
add 1 or 2 cups water. Since milk, cream or sour cream will break
down if heated above boiling point, carefully stir them in at end of
cooking cycle.
MEATS
• For meats, trim fats, wipe or rinse well, and pat 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 to dish.
• If you select a smaller roast, alter the amount of vegetables or potatoes
so that the stoneware is 1⁄2 to 3⁄4 full.
• Always remember, the size of the meat and the recommended cook
time are just estimates. The exact weight of a roast that can be cooked
in the slow cooker will depend upon the specific cut, meat
configuration, and bone structure.
• Cut meat into smaller pieces when cooking with precooked beans, fruit,
or lighter vegetables such as mushrooms, diced onion, eggplant, or
finely minced vegetables. This will enable food to cook at the same rate.
• Lean meats such as chicken or pork tenderloin will cook faster than meats
with more connective tissue and fat such as beef chuck or pork shoulder.
• Meat should be positioned so that it rests in the stoneware and does not
touch the lid.

RECIPES
HINTS AND TIPS
• If you are cooking frozen meats (such as roasts or chickens), you must
first add at least 1 cup of warm liquid. The liquid will act as a “cushion”
to prevent sudden temperature changes. For most recipes containing
cubed frozen meat, cook meats an additional 4 hours on LOW or 2 hours
on HIGH. For large 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.
SPECIALTY DISHES
• Specialty dishes, such as stuffed chops or steak rolls, stuffed cabbage
leaves, stuffed peppers, or baked apples can be arranged in a single layer
so they cook easily and serve attractively.
