When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and/or injury to persons, including the following:
- Read all instructions.
- This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they are closely supervised and instructed concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
- Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children. Children should be supervised to ensure that they do not play with the appliance.
- Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
- To protect against electric shock, do not immerse cord, plug, or base in water or other liquid.
- Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before putting on or taking off parts.
- Do not operate any appliance with a damaged supply cord or plug, or after the appliance malfunctions or has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Supply cord replacement and repairs must be conducted by the manufacturer, its service agent, or similarly qualified persons in order to avoid a hazard. Call the provided customer service number for information on examination, repair, or adjustment.
- The use of accessory attachments not recommended by the appliance manufacturer may cause injuries.

Other Consumer Safety Information
This product is intended for household use only.
This product is only intended for the preparation, cooking, and serving of foods. This product is not intended for use with any nonfood materials or products.
⚠️WARNING Electrical Shock Hazard: This appliance has a polarized plug (one wide blade) that reduces the risk of electric shock. The plug fits only one way into a polarized outlet. Do not defeat the safety purpose of the plug by modifying the plug in any way or by using an adapter. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, have an electrician replace the outlet.
A short power-supply cord is used to reduce the risk resulting from it being grabbed by children, becoming entangled in, or tripping over a longer cord.
LID AND CROCK: PRECAUTIONS AND INFORMATION
- Please handle crock and lid carefully to ensure long life.
- Avoid sudden, extreme temperature changes. For example, do not place a hot lid or crock into cold water, or onto a wet surface.
- Avoid hitting crock or lid against faucet or other hard surfaces.
- Do not use crock or lid if chipped, cracked, or severely scratched.
- Do not use abrasive cleansers or metal scouring pads.
- The bottom of crock is very rough and can damage countertop. Use caution.
- The crock and lid can become very hot. Use caution. Do not place directly on any unprotected surface or countertop.
- The crock is microwave-safe and oven-proof, but never heat crock when empty. Never place lid on a burner or stove top. Do not place lid in a microwave oven, conventional oven, or on stove top.
REMOVING LID AND CROCK
When removing lid, tilt so that opening faces away from you to avoid being burned by steam.
The sides of the slow cooker’s base get very warm because the heating elements are located here. Use handles on base if necessary. Use oven mitts to remove crock.
Parts and Features
*To order parts:

For best results, fill the crock at least half full but no more than 1 inch (2.5 cm) from the rim. If only half-filled, check for doneness 1 to 2 hours earlier than recipe time.
How to Use Your Slow Cooker
⚠️WARNING Food Safety Hazard. Food must be hot enough
to prevent bacterial growth before using WARM setting. The WARM setting should only be used after a recipe has been thoroughly cooked. Do not reheat food on WARM setting. If food has been cooked and then refrigerated, reheat it on LOW or HIGH and then switch to WARM. Visit foodsafety.gov for more information.
BEFORE FIRST USE: Wash lid and crock in hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry.
Wattage has been adjusted to compensate for heat lost through vent holes.
Rotate control knob to LOW or HIGH. Do not cook on WARM.
NEVER lock clips during cooking.
When finished, turn OFF (O) and unplug.
Secure wire clips for transport.
Cleaning and Care
⚠️WARNING Electrical Shock Hazard. Disconnect power before cleaning. Do not immerse cord, plug, or base in any liquid.
Remove crock and let cool.
DO NOT use the “SANI” setting when washing in the dishwasher.
“SANI” cycle temperatures could damage your product.
To prevent lingering food smells, found in most plastic containers,clean rubber lid gasket with hot, soapy water after each use. Store with lid ajar.
Tips for Slow Cooking
- The crock should be at least half-filled for best results. If only half filled, check for doneness 1 to 2 hours earlier than recipe time.
- Stirring is not necessary when slow cooking. Removing glass lid results in major heat loss and the cooking time may need to be extended. However, if cooking on High, you may want to stir occasionally.
- If cooking soups or stews, leave a 2-inch (5-cm) space between the top of the crock and the food so that the recipe can come to a simmer.
- Many recipes call for cooking all day. If your morning schedule doesn’t allow time to prepare a recipe, do it the night before. Place all ingredients in crock, cover with lid, and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, simply place crock in slow cooker.
- Some foods are not suited for extended cooking in a slow cooker. Pasta, seafood, milk, cream, or sour cream should be added 2 hours before serving. Evaporated milk or condensed soups are perfect for slow cooking.
- The higher the fat content of meat, the less liquid is needed. If cooking meat with a high fat content, place thick onion slices underneath so meat will not sit on (and cook in) fat.
- Slow cookers allow for very little evaporation. If making your favorite soup, stew, or sauce, reduce liquid called for in original recipe. If too thick, liquid can be added later.
- If cooking a vegetable-type casserole, there will need to be liquid in the recipe to prevent scorching on the sides of crock.
- If cooking a recipe with root vegetables, place root vegetables in the bottom of the crock.
Food Safety Tips
- Do not use frozen, uncooked meat in the slow cooker. Thaw any meat or poultry before slow cooking.
- Visit www.foodsafety.gov for more information on safe internal cooking temperatures.
- 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 into refrigerator.
- Never allow undercooked or raw meat to sit at room temperature in the slow cooker. Once meat is placed into the crock, it should be cooked immediately (unless prepping slow cooker the night before, where crock should be placed into the refrigerator).
IF YOU LIVE IN A HIGH-ALTITUDE AREA:
The Extension service will have detailed information about cooking for your area. To locate the Cooperative Extension service in your county, please visit: http://www.csrees.usda.gov/Extension/.
For best results, fill the crock at least half full but no more than one inch from rim. Always follow package directions.
