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 inherited a west bend slow cooker model 84624 and dont have a manuel for it. I am concerned with the 300 watt is this normal? Or is that very low? I dont know how long to cook in this or amounts...


  • 1 Use setting 1 (warm #1) only to warm rolls and muffins. At 140 degrees Fahrenheit, this setting should not be used for cooking.
  • 2 Use setting 2 (warm #2) to keep cooked foods warm until they're ready to be served.
  • 3 Use settings 3, 4 and 5 (low, medium high) for cooking. The setting you choose determines the length of time the food will cook. A typical meal with meat and vegetables needs 7 to 10 hours to cook at the low or #3 setting, 4 to 6 hours at the medium or #4 setting, and 2 to 3 hours at the high or #5 setting.

  • All West Bend slow cooker models eventually simmer at the boiling point, or 212 degrees. The setting simply determines how quickly the cooker will reach that temperature.


    300 watt is not a huge consumption of electricity, depending of course on, how often, how long and how high temperature.

    HOW TO USE AUTO SETTING


    It looks rather like my slow cooker which has a 3 position switch with LOW, HIGH and AUTO.
    AUTO uses a thermostat control to prevent the contents from boiling. Useful if being left unwatched. HIGH setting can cause burning if contents not stirred, and LOW setting is only of use to keep things warm. Hope that helped.

    Whats the differences with the low high and auto settings on a slow cooker which setting is considered best for cooking stews


    The difference is the time and how warm it cooks. Low cooks a slow, lower heat - cooks 6-8 hours. And High is a faster cook at 4-6 hours. I tend to use low for stews and chilis.

    How long to cook beef stew on auto setting


    At least four hours. All day will make it tenderer and more flavoursome, but turn it to low when it starts to bubble.

    Hi - I have a Rival Smart-Pot slow cooker and set it all up to cook a stew just this morning. I set it on low for 8 hours. I have just arrived home (earlier then expected) 5 hours later to find the lights...


    It could be you lost ac power from the power company during the day (if only for a few seconds).
    Did you notice anything else in your house that was affected (VCR, alarm clock,etc.)?

    Why does my crock pot cook at too high a heat?


    With something that small, there is not a lot of resources for parts and repair. The item is considered a throw away. You could contact customer service at RIVAL and see what they say about the issue. Could be mis-wired or something like that. The only easily replaced part for that is the stoneware.
