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 dishes.
* 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.
