Introduction
Thank you for purchasing your new Morphy Richards Slow Cooker.
Your Sear & Stew Slow Cooker will allow you to create an extensive
selection of meals with the added benefit of being able to sear the meat
in the same pan. Searing meat in the cooking pan means that the juices
from the meat combine with the rest of the ingredients creating richer
fuller flavours in your dishes.

Handling The Cooking Pot
• WARNING: The Cooking Pot (3) will become
very hot when in use.
• To prevent the Cooking Pot from slipping when
using to sear, saute or fry the ingredients on your
hob, use an oven glove to support the Cooking
Pot when stirring the food.
• Be careful when using the Cooking Pot on a gas
hob, select the correct size gas ring to fit the
base area of the Cooking Pot. DO NOT use on a
wok burner or oversized gas hob.
• Do not use metal utensils to stir food in the
Cooking Pot as this will scratch and remove the
non stick coating. Use either wood or silicone
plastic utensils.
• WARNING: The Lid handle (1), the Base Unit (4)
and the Cooking Pot (3), as well as the outside
of the Base Unit, all become hot during cooking.
Always use oven gloves when handling ANY
part of the Slow Cooker during cooking.
Handling The Glass Lid
• When removing the Glass Lid (2), tilt so that
opening faces away from you to avoid being
burned by steam.
Foods For Slow Cooking
• Most foods are suited to slow cooking methods,
however there are a few guidelines that need to
be followed.
• Ensure all frozen ingredients are thoroughly
defrosted prior to cooking.
• Cut root vegetables into small, even pieces, as
they take longer to cook than meat. They can be
gently sauteed for 2-3 minutes before slow
cooking. Ensure that root vegetables are always
placed at the bottom of the Cooking Pot (3) and
all ingredients are immersed in the cooking liquid.
• Trim all excess fat from meat before cooking, as
the slow cooking method does not allow fat to
evaporate.
• If adapting an existing recipe from conventional
cooking, you may need to reduce the amount of
liquid used. Liquid will not evaporate from your
Slow Cooker to the same extent as conventional
cooking.
• Never leave uncooked food at room temperature
in your Slow Cooker.
6
• Uncooked kidney beans must be soaked
overnight and boiled for at least 10 minutes to
remove toxins before use in a Slow Cooker.
• Insert a meat thermometer into joints of roasts,
hams or whole chickens to ensure they are
cooked to the desired temperature.
• Do not use your Slow Cooker to reheat food.
Slow Cooking Tips
• The Slow Cooker must be at least half full for best
results.
• Slow cooking retains moisture. If you wish to
reduce liquid, remove the lid after cooking and
turn the control to High. Reduce the moisture by
simmering for 30 to 45 minutes.
• If cooking soups, leave 5 cm gap from the rim of
the Cooking Pot (3) and the food surface to allow
for simmering.
• Removing the Glass Lid (2) will allow heat to
escape, reducing the efficiency of your Slow
Cooker and increasing the cooking time. If you
remove the lid to stir or add ingredients, you will
need to allow 10-15 minutes extra cooking time
for each time you remove the Glass Lid.
• Many things can affect how quickly a recipe will
cook, including water and fat content, initial
temperature of the food and the size of the food.
Check food is properly cooked before serving.
• Many recipes will take several hours to cook. If
you don’t have time to prepare food in the
morning, prepare it the night before, storing the
food in a covered container in the fridge. Transfer
the food to the Cooking Pot and add boiling
liquid/stock. In most of the recipes in this book,
the meat ingredients are browned first to improve
their appearance and flavour.
• If you are short on preparation time and would
prefer to skip the searing stage, simply add your
meat and other ingredients into your Slow Cooker
and cover with boiling liquid/stock. You will need
to increase the recipe cooking time as follows:
High setting +1hr, Medium setting +1-2 hrs, Low
Setting +2-3hrs.
• Most meat and vegetable recipes require 8-10
hours on Low, 5-7 hours on Medium and 4-6
hours on High.
• Some ingredients are not suitable for slow
cooking. Pasta, seafood, milk and cream should
be added towards the end of the cooking time.
• Pieces of food cut into small pieces will cook
quicker. A degree of ‘trial and error’ will be
required to fully optimise the potential of your
Slow Cooker.
460012 rev1.qxp_Layout 1 26/01/2018 15:20 Page 7
• All food should be covered with a liquid, gravy or
sauce. In a separate pan or jug, prepare your
liquid, gravy or sauce and completely cover the
food in the Cooking Pot (3).
• When cooking joints of meat, ham, poultry etc,
the size and shape of the joint is important. Try to
keep the joint in the lower 2/3 of the pot. If
necessary, cut into two pieces. Joint weight
should be kept within the maximum limit of 1kg.
• For ham and brisket fill with hot water to just
cover the joint. For beef, pork or poultry cover to
1/3 depth.
Care And Cleaning
Caring For The Glass Lid
And Cooking Pot
• Please handle the Glass Lid (2) and Cooking Pot
(3) carefully to ensure long life.
• Avoid sudden, extreme temperature changes to
the Glass Lid. For example, do not place a hot lid
into cold water or onto a wet surface.
• Avoid hitting the Glass Lid against any hard
surfaces.
• Do not use the Glass Lid if chipped, cracked or
severely scratched.
• Do not use abrasive cleansers or metal scouring
pads.
• Turn off and unplug you Slow Cooker from the
mains. Allow to cool completely before cleaning.
• Do not use metal utensils or abrasive cleaners
when cleaning.
• Remove the Glass Lid (2) and Cooking Pot (3) and
clean in hot soapy water.
• Wipe the sides of the main unit with a damp
cloth.
• The Glass Lid and Cooking Pot are dishwasher
safe.
• Never heat the Cooking Pot when empty, when
searing or browning add the meat as soon as the
oil is hot.
• Never place the Glass Lid or Cooking Pot under a
grill, in the oven, in a microwave or toaster oven.
• Never place lid directly on a burner or hob.
• Do not use metal utensils when searing or to stir
food in the Cooking Pot as this will scratch and
remove the non stick coating. Use either
wooden or silicone plastic utensils.
DO NOT IMMERSE THE MAIN UNIT IN WATER
Troubleshooting
Problem
• Food is undercooked.
• Food is overcooked.
Reason
Solution
• Loss of power
• Test the mains outlet with a
lamp known to be working.
• Food cooked on wrong setting
for cooking time
• Check the Control Knob
position and the recipe details.
• Glass Lid not placed correctly
on the Cooking Pot
• Check the Glass Lid is
correctly placed and nothing is
obstructing it.
• Cooking Pot was under half full
• Your Slow Cooker has been
designed to thoroughly cook
food in a filled Cooking Pot. If
the Cooking Pot is only
half-filled, check to see if the
food is cooked 1 to 2 hours
earlier than recipe time.
• Check the Control Knob
position and the recipe details.
• Food cooked too long
• Cooking Pot placed in Base
Unit while still very hot.
• Cooking time may be
shortened. Check food is
cooked 30 minutes to 1 hour
earlier than the stated recipe
time.

Recipes
We have developed over 25 recipes for you to use in the Sear and Stew Slow Cooker. From
soups for starters, curries for mains and pears in red wine for dessert, there are choices for
all tastes.
The cooking times given in the following recipes are for the Medium setting. Should you want
to increase or decrease the cooking time, please refer to the cooking guide below. Please
note that these cooking times are for guidance only and may vary depending on food type
and personal tastes.
For example if the recipe says cook for 4-6 hours on Medium and you require the cooking
time to be a shorter, cook on High, which will reduce the cooking time to 3-4 hours. To
increase the cooking time, choose Low which will increase the cooking time to 6-8 hours.
The recipes are based on the maximum working volume of the slow cooker 2.5 litres / 41/2
pts. This allows a 2cm space between the top of the pot and the food.

New England beef
Ingredients:
• 1kg topside beef
• 1 bouquet garni
• 1tsp thyme
• 1tsp black peppercorns
• 4 shallots
• 225g carrots, sliced
• 100g swede, diced
Method:
1 Put the beef into the Cooking Pot and add all the remaining
ingredients. Cover the beef with cold water (1.2L should be
sufficient to submerge the joint.) Place the lid on and bring to a
simmer on the hob.
2 Season well and then transfer the Cooking Pot into the Base Unit,
cover with the Glass Lid.
3 Cook for approximately 5-7 hours on the Medium setting.
4 Take the beef out of the Cooking Pot with a slotted spoon and allow
to cool for 10 minutes. The cooking liquid can be used as a base to
make gravy.
5 Cut the beef into slices and spoon a little of the cooking liquid over.
Serve with vegetables and garnish with fresh parsley.
IMPORTANT: When buying a joint of meat, ensure it will fit into the
Cooking Pot, so when it is covered with liquid it will be 2.5cm below
the rim. The joint must not stick out above the rim and there should
be enough room to cover the meat with water. The shape of the
meat is just as important as the weight.
