Della 12 Quart 1600-Watt Electric Pressure Cooker Multi-Functional Timer Slow Cook XL Part number: 048-GM-48261 Unable to get this cooker to slow cook.

it is possible that you have misunderstood the instructions
for a slow cooker you have low medium and high
press slow cook and on low and in 8 hours the food is cooked
I see from your statements that you expect the cooker to be set on slow cook but cook at a high temperature fast
if it says slow cook --9 hours and the temp is 125 degrees , have you waited 9 hours to see if it is cooked as the slow cooking process is by the gradual build up of heat in the container that is not expelled by radiation to the air
in a pressure cooker , that build up of heat also builds up pressure and so it cooks better
other solution--- if it is not right return it for a warranty refund or if out of warranty , junk it and get a different make

Salmonella on raw chicken, do not wash?

also use separate chopping boards
Cut up chicken does not go with Salad / un cooked foods on same chopping board and hands with cut up chicken does not go with with Salad / un cooked foods
Eggs are another source - had a bad food poisoning incident in Melbourne Australia caused by eggs in Mayonnaise.
Meat never goes on top shelf !

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.

I have never had a slow cooker in my life and found this one in a garage sale without the manual. How does it work?

Yes you can use any cheaper cuts of meat or chicken and yes less liquid is used in slow cookers. add hard veges n use green veges for end of cooking time. cook for 6 or 8 hrs on low. Yeilds ecellent results. Find slow cooker books for great meals n desserts. I use mine every week.

Have lost instruction book, how do I use it?

What sort is it? I have a Sunbeam - I just throw in all the ingredients for say, a casserole, in the morning before work. Leave it on low heat setting, ensuring that I have a tin of tomatoes or a mug of beef or chicken stock to keep everything moist, put the lid on and about 7 hours later hey presto! The meal is ready. No real preparation , I just use a normal meal recipe, and ensure i have enough moisture for the cooking as I would in the oven.

I was given a model CE23221FD RC5 slow cooker and it has no instructions on how to cool anything but rice. I'm a diabetic and the last thing I want to cook is rice. How can i find out how to cook chicken...

Ask whoever gave it to you if the manual is available. Since it wasn't new to you, your comments about it being sold without instructions are not valid. Perhaps it is only a rice cooker and not meant for anything else.

I had the exact same thing happen!

First some common sense, there is no such thing as partially defrosted - it's either frozen or it isn't as far as cooking safety. A slow cooker, even on high, only takes food to simmering temperature and holds it there, and it does it very slowly. Put something frozen inside and cover with glass, the glass gets very cold and then turn it on high and go away for several hours....unless the glass is Corning Ware and rated for freezer to oven, expect it to break one out of ten times. Also, putting frozen food in a slow cooker and thawing while slow cooking gives you a good chance at growing some unhealthy bacteria in the cooker as the meat warms. Meat should always be thawed fully before placing in one of these units, as the directions specify.

To add water or not to add water????

Slow cookers do not need water in the base unit to cook the food in the ceramic insert. The ceramic insert gets hot from the base and cooks the food. Here is a good guide to cooking with a slow cooker. enjoy
