I doubt this very much as they do not boil food. It will cook faster if you turn it up though.

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


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.

    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.

    Ronson slow cooker don't know which is high or low


    on setting 1 (low),the slow cooker can operate all day and night if required

    when set to 2 (high) it is very much like a covered pot on the stove.food will cook in half the required time

    AUTO the slow cooker will cook on 2 (high) until the food reaches a pre-set temperature,then switches to 1(low) and maintains a constant slow cooking temperature.Auto is ideal for someone who is leaving the house for the day 8-9 hours please feel free to share this information.If you have any more ? please fell free to contact me.

    Need directions for presidents choice slow cooker


    Heat intensity is warm, 1, 2, 3 (highest)
    How to operate: Plug in. Set timer to amount of hours to cook. Press the SELECT button to scroll thru 4 settings - "warm", "1" (Low), "2" (Medium)", "3" (High). Once the desired cooking temp selected, press the "round circle" power button to begin cooking. The time display will now start to count down to "0:00" When the cooking time has been reached, the slow cooker will automatically go into "warm" mode for a maximum of 6 hours, then automatically turn off. NOTE: Not recommended using the WARM setting for more than 4 hours at a time. NOTE2: To stop the cooking process at any time, press the "round circle" power button. The unit will default to "0:00" time but the indicator light in the "3" high position will remain on.

    Lost Manual - not sure which is high or low


    Hi. I'm a Ronson Service Centre.

    I grabbled this blurb from a Ronson Slow Cooker Manual. Not the same model, but it has the same settings:

    On Setting 1 (Low) the Slow Cooker can operate all day and night if required.
    When set to 2 (High) it is very much like a covered pot on the stove. Foods will cook in ½ the time required for 1 (Low)
    When set to Auto, the Slow Cooker will cook on 2 until the food reaches a pre-set temperature, then switches to 1 and maintains a constant slow cooking temperature.
    “Auto” is the ideal setting for someone leaving the house for the whole day as most food will cook for 8-9 hours and be ready to serve when they return.

    Slow cooker not hot


    If you only have High and Low on the slow cooker this will be normal until it reaches correct temp, the trick is Do not remove the lid once you have started the process, you lose 20 minutes cooking time every time you lift the lid during cooking, if you have timed ex,4,6,or8 hours just set to required cooking time and leave until done. hope this helps clarabella
