Question about Crock Pots & Slow Cookers

After the slow cooker boils is it better to turn it down to low

Is it true that once the slow cooker reaches boiling point on high does it stay the same temperature if you turn it down to low and it still boils

It is a slow cooker for the purpose of slow cooking so turn it to low and it will keep cooking
If you want fast cooking on high temp use a pot or a pan .it will be cheaper.

Should the lid have a steamer hole in it?


Slow cooking is done at below boiling point, so the lid doesn't require a steam hole. That is why you need to boil such things as beans before putting them into the slow cooker, as otherwise they never reach that temperature and can give you belly ache.

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.

    Can you boil in a slow cooker?


    Generally, with enough heat and good insulation, water will boil. Boiling is caused by non-uniform heating - some spots are hotter.
    My wife's slow cooker boils even on the low setting -slowly, but it boils.
    Our rice cooker never used to boil until I burned tomato rice in it (OOPs). Don't make tomato rice in a rice cooker.

    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.

    Cooks too hot/fast


    Hi Wendigo,

    Crock pots are not exact, they only have a "target" minimum temperature (to be sure they kill bacteria). It's possible you just have a relatively strong heating element.

    Also, remember that the boiling point of liquids changes considerably with your altitude, so if you're in a mountainous region you may be seeing "boiling" at a lower temperature than you expect.

    once the slow cooker reaches a temperature set point it shuts off. when the internal temperature drops the thermostat turns on again, otherwise even at a low heat, everything inside would boil away. Hence the term "slow cooker."
