Using a Slow Cooker

  • Use fresh or thawed (not frozen) meat or poultry in the slow cooker.
  • If called for in a recipe, brown the meat or poultry just prior to cooking in the slow cooker. Ground meat must always be fully cooked before adding to other ingredients in the slow cooker.
  • Fill the slow cooker at least one-half but no more than three-quarters full.
  • Keep the lid on! Each time the lid is removed, the cooking time may increase by 15 - 25 minutes.
  • Ingredients such as pasta, seafood, milk, cream and sour cream should usually be added to the slow cooker in the last hour of cooking.
  • Cooking times may vary with makes and models of slow cookers.
  • Keep electrical cords of appliances at the back of the counter. Pets and young children won’t be tempted to tug on them.
