How is it used as a slow cooker


It is already a slow cooker. You just add your ingredients and plug it in and wait patiently, because it takes a longtime to cook in a slow cooker. I have one.Usually 10-12 hours.

Stew was supposed to cook for one hour. Not close to done. Still on but no idea how long it will take. Was set to slow cook as recipe said.


When you use a slow cooker, you must either boil the food before adding it to the slow cooker or add an hour to the cooking time to bring it up to a simmer. That is the time that the cooking actually starts to make the meat tender. Stewing beef would take at least 2.5 to 3 hours. The only way you would do it in an hour is you used fillet steak.

Is it ok to fill my slow cooker all the way to the top?


You should try to avoid filling your slow cooker all the way. Most manufacturers suggest leaving 1-1.5 inches of space to allow sufficient room for the foods to simmer during cooking. This will eliminate any occurrences of bubbling over during the simmering process, keeping your counters clean.

The outside of my slow cooker gets very hot, is that normal? Also, on the low setting the ingredients seem to at a pretty high boil.


Yes, many models have hot outsides. To check temp, fill with water, put on low for 1 hour, check with an instant read thermometer. If it is over about 200 (normal low temp), your pot is running very hot.
