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

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.

    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.

    I bought Tefal 4 in 1 slow cooker last week and couple of first times it worked OK. Now when I set hours for slow cooking it brings the food to boil in about 6 minutes and then switched to keep warm mode....


    I suspect that is the norm for slow cooking. The cooking temp is brought up and just maintained for the given time. Nothing wrong so :) . You wouldn't want the food to sit in liquid that slow in heating up. It's kinda like bbq'ing. You set the patio on fire and wait till the flames to subside before you put the hot dogs on. I think you are safe. :) - Ned I consulted with a crock pot fanatic, My Wife!

    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.

    Crock pot use


    You should keep the lid on as much as possible. You are correct; once you open the lid, the liquid inside can quickly lose temperature at a rate of 10-15 degrees per minute.

    Additionally, taking the top off allows steam to escape, which reduces the point of cooking in a slow cooker (cooking in a relatively closed system, with the steam condensing back to water and flowing back into the broth).

    It's not doing a whole lot to the flavor (aside from causing the stew to thicken with the loss of water), but it is definitely causing the cooking to take longer than it should.
