THE BENEFITS OF SLOW COOKING
Health: The gentle cooking action reduces damage to vitamins and retains more of the
nutrients and flavours.
Economy: Long, slow cooking can tenderise cheaper, tougher cuts of meat, and uses about a
quarter of the power of the small ring on the average hob.
Convenience: Prepare the ingredients the night before, put them in the slow cooker in the
morning, before you leave for work, and have a delicious meal waiting for you when you get
home.

GENERAL
•
Thaw frozen food completely before adding it to the cooking pot.
•
Brown the meat and sauté the vegetables in a pan or the cooking pot.
•
You can use the cooking pot for searing browning, sautéing or frying,suitable for gas and
electric hobs only, prior to using the slow cooker.
•
Don’t cook on low without first preheating the cooking pot in the slow cooker on the high
setting for at least 20 minutes.
•
Soak dried peas and beans for 8 hours (or overnight) before cooking, to soften them.
WARNING boil dried beans (e.g. red kidney beans) for at least 10 minutes before adding to
the slow cooker. They’re poisonous if eaten raw or undercooked.
•
You don’t need to soak lentils overnight.
•
Store ingredients prepared beforehand (e.g. the night before) in containers in the fridge.
Don’t put the slow cooker or the cooking pot into the fridge.
•
Root vegetables, tubers, and bulbs (carrots, potatoes, onions) take much longer to cook
than meat, so cut them down to about 5mm (¼ inch) thick slices, sticks or dice, and sauté
them gently for 2-3 minutes in the cooking pot on a hob.
•
All vegetables (including dried veg) must be immersed in the cooking liquid.
•
When cooking with rice, use at least 150ml (¼pt) of cooking liquid for each 100g (4oz) of
rice. We’ve found that “easy-cook” rice gives the best results.
•
Pasta isn’t suitable for slow cooking, it becomes too soft. If your recipe requires pasta, it
should be stirred in 30-40 minutes before the end of the cooking time.
COOKING MODES
•
low for traditional “slow cooking”. You must preheat the cooking pot in the slow cooker on
high for at least 20 minutes before cooking on low.
•
high for “fast cooking”, using the slow cooker as an electric stewpot. Keep an eye on it, to
make sure that the food doesn’t dry out. If it looks like drying out, add hot water.
•
warm for keeping food warm – but only after it has been cooked to readiness in the slow
cooker.
CAUTION Don’t use the low setting to heat food up – you won’t kill the bugs.
PREPARATION
1.
Connect the plug to the wall power outlet and switch the power on.
2.
The display screen will flash “ 00:00” 4 times along with all 3 indicator lights.
3.
The display screen will then flash “----“ indicating that the slow cooker is in standby mode.
4.
Put the meat and vegetables into the cooking pot and add the boiling cooking liquid.
USING WITHOUT DELAY START
1.
Select low or high temperature by pressing the select button until corresponding red
mode light comes on.
2.
Then, set the cooking time by pressing the time/delay timer button. Repeatedly press the
button to adjust the time in 30 minute increments (30 minutes to 10 hours).
3.
Once the desired cooking time is set the display will flash three times then begin to count
down. Cooking has now started.
4.
After the cooking time has ended, the slow cooker will switch to the warm setting. Some
food will deteriorate if kept in “warm” mode for extended periods of time.
4
5.
When ready to serve, switch off the wall power outlet and remove the plug from the socket.
USING WITH DELAY START
This feature allows you to delay the start of cooking in one hour increments.
1.
2.
Follow steps 1 and 2 under Using Without Delay Start.
Press and hold the time/delay timer button for 2-3 seconds. The display will flash and
display AA:0x (where x is the cooking time you have set plus 1 hour). For example, if you set
a cooking time of 7 hours, the display will show AA:08. Each additional press of the time/
delay timer button will add one hour to the delay (first press = AA:08, second press =
AA:09, etc).
Don’t worry if you’ve set a cooking time which includes 30 minutes (e.g. 7:30, 8:30, etc.). It’ll
disappear when you’re setting the start delay due to the limitations of the display but still be
counted during cooking. The total cooking time plus delay start time cannot exceed 12 hours.
So, if you’ve set a 10 hour cooking time you can only set a 2 hour delay before cooking starts.
SERVING
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Check that the slow cooker is off
Using oven gloves, remove the lid, and put it on a heatproof surface.
It’s best to ladle the food from the slow cooker into serving dishes or plates.
Don’t carry the slow cooker, the trailing cable may catch on something.
You may use oven gloves to lift the cooking pot, complete with the lid, but it’s hot and it’s
heavy – so take care.
TIP
Cleaning can be made much easier if you immediately remove all the cooked food from the
cooking pot, then fill it with warm water.
NOTES
•
•
•
•
•
•
If the time/delay timer button is not pressed, the cooking time that appears on the display
screen will be the default time (6 hours) and cooking will commence.
During cooking, the time can be changed at any stage by pressing the time/delay timer
button.
To cancel the setting or time selected, press the select button until none of the indicator
lights are illuminated. After the time flashes 4 times, the display screen will then flash “----“
indicating that the searing slow cooker has returned to standby mode.
At the end of the cooking time the slow cooker will automatically switch to the warm
setting (light will flash) and the display screen will begin to count down from 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes has elapsed, the slow cooker will automatically remain on warm and the
display will begin to count down for 10 hours.
Once 10 hours has elapsed the slow cooker will automatically switch to standby mode.
SEARING
For recipes that need ingredients to be seared, browned or sautéed.
•
Always use silicone, heatproof plastic or wood utensils to avoid scratching nonstick surface.
•
Never use metal spoons, spatulas, tongs, forks or knives as these will damage the non-stick
surface.
•
If your recipe calls for searing, browning or sautéing ingredients prior to slow cooking,
remove the cooking pot from the slow cooker and place it directly on a hob to cook
ingredients as per a normal frypan.
5
•
Hob use is only suitable for gas and electric hobs. Not suitable for induction hobs.
•
Do not leave the cooking pot unattended when cooking on the stove.
•
Do not use the lid when searing on the stove top, otherwise ingredients will not sear or
brown.
•
Once food is seared or browned as required, add other ingredients and stir though.
•
Using oven gloves grasp both handles and carefully place the cooking pot back into the
slow cooker.
GRAVY/SAUCE
Slow cooking retains more of the juices than normal cooking. This tends to increase the volume
of cooking liquid, and thin the sauce or gravy. To allow for this, sauces should initially be thicker
than normal. Anything to be sautéed could be tossed in seasoned flour beforehand, to thicken
the gravy/sauce.
CARE AND MAINTENANCE
1.
Unplug the slow cooker (switch the socket off first, if it’s switchable).
2.
Using oven gloves, remove the lid and the cooking pot and put them on a heatproof
surface.
3.
If you don’t intend to wash up right away, fill the cooking pot with warm water, otherwise
residual heat may bake food debris on to the cooking pot, making its eventual removal
more difficult.
4.
Wash the lid and cooking pot in hot soapy water, using a cloth or sponge, then rinse and
dry thoroughly. Don’t use scouring pads.
5.
All other surfaces, internal and external, should be wiped with a damp cloth. You may use a
little washing-up liquid, if necessary.
6.
Dry all surfaces thoroughly before re-using the slow cooker or storing it away.
7.
You may wash the cooking pot and lid in a dishwasher, but the harsh environment inside
the dishwasher may affect the surface finishes.
•
Any damage should be cosmetic, and should not affect the functionality of the cooker.
•
Don’t immerse the body of the slow cooker in water or any other liquid.
•
Don’t put the body of the slow cooker in a dishwasher.
•
Don’t use harsh or abrasive cleaners or solvents.

COOKING GUIDELINES
Vegetables
Slow cooking is ideal for vegetables. There’s little evaporation, so all the juices and flavours are
retained.
Root vegetables like potato, carrot, turnip, and swede, need more slow cooking than meat. Cut
them into 5mm (¼”) slices, sticks or dice, and immerse in the cooking liquid. Cooking times vary
with the type and age of the vegetables. Experience will soon show the best times for your own
taste. Quickly cooked vegetables, like frozen peas and sweetcorn, must be thawed, then added
half an hour before the end of cooking. Don’t slow cook baked potatoes in their jackets.
Pulses (Beans, Peas and Lentils)
WARNING boil dried beans (e.g. red kidney beans) for at least 10 minutes before adding to the
slow cooker. They’re poisonous if eaten raw or undercooked.
Don’t soak lentils. Soak dried peas or beans overnight. Drain and rinse, then boil for 10 minutes,
in the cooking liquid, before adding to the cooking pot. Season at the end of cooking. For
canned beans or peas, simply drain and add them 30 minutes before the end of the cooking
time.
Fish
Cooking fish in the cooking pot develops delicate flavours slowly, retains the flavour and
nutritive value, and holds the fish together. Don’t cook fish for long periods.
1.
Grease the base of the cooking pot with butter or margarine.
2.
Clean, trim and wash the fish (rolled fillets and steaks are most suitable). Frozen fish should
be completely thawed before slow cooking. Dry and place in the cooking pot.
3.
Season well, sprinkle with lemon juice, then add hot stock, water or wine
4.
Dot some butter over the fish, and cook on low for 2-3 hours.
Meat
Slow cooking tenderises cheaper cuts, and reduces shrinkage and evaporation, retaining flavour
and nutritive value. The size and shape of the joint, its quality, and the proportion of lean, fat
and bone, all affect cooking times. When testing a dish to see if it’s cooked, don’t forget that
root vegetables usually take longer to cook. Thaw frozen meat completely before cooking.
Recipe times are given only as a guide. Where a different cut of meat is used cooking times may
need to be adjusted. Avoid meat with a high proportion of fat, or trim the excess fat. Small joints,
up to 800g (1½lb), can be cooked, depending on shape and fit. The meat mustn’t force the lid up.
1.
Season the meat, then brown on all sides in the cook pot.
2.
Transfer the cook pot to the slow cooker and cook at high for the time shown.
3.
Pork joints with rind may be grilled for 10 minutes to crisp.
4.
If possible, turn joints once during cooking, to ensure even tenderness.

A FEW RECIPES TO START YOU OFF
•
Cooking for more than an hour over the times in the recipes may affect the flavour.
Nevertheless, if these times don’t suit you, feel free to experiment. Slow cooking is very
forgiving.
•
Use metric or imperial measures, don’t mix them, they’re not exact equivalents.
•
Be careful with quantities. After all the ingredients are put into the cooking pot, it shouldn’t
be more than about threequarters full, to allow for expansion. If you overfill, it may spit hot
water, and it may overflow during use.
•
Slow cooking can leave too much liquid. If you want to adjust this, remove the lid, stir in a
teaspoon of flour, and cook at high, stirring, till the sauce thickens/reduces.
•
For recipes that dont need ingredients searing put the cooking pot in the slow cooker, fit
the lid, then preheat on high for 20 minutes before putting anything into the cooking pot.
