low or warm temperature without setting a cooking time.

Using the Program Mode
If you'll be busy or away when your food is finished cooking,
use the PROGRAM mode. It's easy. Simply input the amount of time
your food needs to cook and select the HIGH or LOW heat setting.
As food cooks, the illuminated display on the control panel will
alternate between the heat setting and the remaining time. When
the cooking cycle is complete, the Set & Forget Programmable Slow
Cooker will automatically shift to WARM setting.
Using the Probe Mode
For many foods, especially large cuts of meat, the internal
temperature is the best test for doneness. The temperature probe
takes the guesswork out of slow cooking. Select the desired
internal food temperature and the slow cooker will automatically
shift to WARM once the temperature is reached. By using the
cooking guide for the PROBE mode below, you can estimate the
amount of time the food will need to cook:
Cooking Guide for Probe Mode: NOTE: For 6-quart slow cooker only.
Adjust the size and weight of food. If cooking dense vegetables
(such as potatoes or other root vegetables) with meats, check for
doneness when desired meat temperature is reached. These types of
vegetables may take longer to cook when cooked with meats/foods
such as those listed in the Cooking Guide above.
Using the Manual Mode
On days when you want to keep things simple, you can simply
select between the HIGH and LOW heat setting to cook your food.
When your food is ready, turn the unit OFF or select the WARM
setting until you're ready to serve your food.
SLOW COOKER TIPS
If you're not familiar with slow cooking, there are a few things
you should know about this method of cooking. First, how high you
fill the crock (sometimes called the insert pan, stoneware,
cookware or vessel) is important. To prevent overcooking, the
crock should be filled half-full to no more than one inch from
the rim. However, this does not mean to fill the crock with
liquid. If cooking soups or stews, leave a 2-inch (5 cm) space
between the top of the crock and the food so the recipe can come
to a simmer.
Secondly, if you lift the lid during cooking, your cooking time
will increase due to heat loss. Unless your recipe specifically
calls for stirring, resist lifting the lid. Last but not least,
if you want to store leftovers after cooking, do NOT place the
entire crock in the refrigerator since contents will take too
long to cool. Instead, divide leftovers into smaller containers
and place in the refrigerator.
A slow cooker is great for foods that are not naturally tender,
such as meat with a lot of connective tissue. These are the
least-expensive cuts but also the most flavorful. Like braising,
slow cookers tenderize meat slowly as it cooks. If you choose
cuts such as chuck roast, pork butt, short ribs or chicken
thighs, you won't be disappointed with the results. If fat is an
issue, refrigerate the contents after cooking and skim off the
extra fat before serving. Note: you must thaw frozen meat and
poultry before adding it to the slow cooker.
Cooking Side Dishes or Dessert
Main courses, soups and "one-pot" meals are not the only things
that slow cookers are great for preparing. They are also perfect
for making side dishes and dessert, especially when your main
oven is full. Check out the recipes found at HamiltonBeach.com
that were developed and tested by the culinary experts in the
Hamilton Beach Test Kitchen.
How to Adapt Recipes
You can convert your favorite recipes to slow cooker recipes if
you learn these important differences first:
* Liquids do not evaporate in a slow cooker. So unless you are
cooking rice, pasta, or beans, reduce amount of liquid to 1/2 of
the amount called for in your recipe.
* Fresh vegetables produce the most desirable results. Potatoes,
carrots, onions and garlic should be washed and cut in uniform
pieces, then placed in the bottom of the crock. Canned and frozen
vegetables take less time to cook and can produce overcooked
* Ground beef should be browned and drained before slow cooking
to remove grease.
* Tender foods such as pasta, asparagus and snow peas should be
added in the last hour of cooking.
* Dairy products such as cheese, milk, and sour cream should be
added in the last half hour of cooking.
* Seafood such as shrimp, scallops, and fish should be added in
the last 15-30 minutes of cooking.
CARE AND CLEANING
The removable stoneware crock and the lid are dishwasher safe.
To clean the base, unplug and let cool, and then wipe it down
with a damp cloth. Do not immerse the cord, plug or base in any
liquid. Some slow cookers have steam vent holes in their lids;
the Set & Forget Programmable Slow Cooker has a probe hole. If
you are not inserting the probe for using probe mode, leave the
hole open and do not plug it with paper towels or other objects.
Vent holes allow steam to escape and the wattage of the unit has
been adjusted to compensate for any heat loss.
