HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY

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.
POWER CORD INSTRUCTIONS:
A short power-supply cord is used to reduce the risk resulting from
it being grabbed by children, becoming entangled in, or tripping
over a longer cord.
NOTICES:
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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, its rough bottom may scratch some surfaces if
caution is not used. Always place heat resistant protective padding under
the stoneware before setting on a table, countertop or other surface.

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.
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.Plug in your Crock-Pot® slow cooker and select the temperature
setting. Refer to your specific recipe for precise cook times.
NOTE: Some models feature a WARM setting. WARM is ONLY
for keeping already cooked food warm. DO NOT cook on the
WARM setting. We do not recommend using the WARM setting
for more than 4 hours.
3.When cooking is done, unplug your slow cooker and allow it to
cool before cleaning.

HOW TO USE YOUR SLOW COOKER (CONT.)
USAGE NOTES:
•If you suspect that the power has gone out, the food inside
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 example, for a recipe calling for a cooking time of 7
to 9 hours on LOW, cook for 8 hours.
•To avoid over or under-cooking, always fill the stoneware 1/2
to 3/4 full and conform to recommended cook times.
•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 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 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.
•This appliance has no user serviceable parts. Any servicing
beyond that described in the Cleaning Section should be
performed by an Authorized Service Representative only. See
Warranty Section.
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
•
-8-
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.
-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.
-10-
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.
