Thank you so much for your awesome newsletters and software. I just wanted to let you know that I recommend your products every chance I get. My co-worker is looking for something to get her dad for a retirement gift and she thought it was such a great idea.

Cooking on HIGH

  • Cooking on HIGH for one hour is equivalent to 2 to 2-1/2 hours of cooking on LOW.
  • The HIGH setting of a slow cooker ranges in temperature from 300-325 F.
  • The slow cooker becomes a "soup kettle" as liquids boil and evaporate at this temperature.
  • Due to moisture loss, food can cook dry. Check food periodically to ensure enough liquid remains in the pot. If the liquid boils away, the food may burn.
  • Turn the unit to HIGH and remove the lid to thicken juices by evaporation.
  • Make sure you're home during the final hours of cooking time so you can check the food.
  • Stir food periodically to distribute flavors and to prevent sticking. This will help make the stoneware crock easier to clean.
Cooking on LOW
  • Cooking on LOW for 1 hour is equivalent to cooking on HIGH for 30 minutes.
  • The LOW setting of a slow cooker ranges in temperature from 200-210 F.
  • Liquids only simmer at this temperature.
  • Due to little evaporation or moisture loss, foods become more watery.
  • Foods will not burn or overcook on the LOW setting.
  • Cooking on LOW ensures a "start it and leave it" fuss free meal. No checking or stirring is required.
