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

Paula deen pressure cooker. Can I use it for slow cooking? What is temp of keep warm? Could put lid on loose. Also, timing notches are mixed into keep warm button. I overcooked my first batch


A pressure cooker is NOT anything close to a slow cooker. The cooking philosophy are practically totally opposites. A pressure cooker basically cooks your food in a fraction of time because it is under pressure. A slow cooker takes hours.

The whole idea of using a pressure cooker is that it is sealed and applies pressure to cook the food faster. The lid needs to be sealed for the pressure cooker to operate properly. It is frequently referred to as "infusion" cooking now days.

You need to read the instruction book that came with the pressure cooker. Pressure cookers usually cook for less than an hour--my homemade pressure cooker spaghetti sauce is cooked in less than 30 minutes. They are nice and were very popular long before anyone thought of microwaves and slow cookers. However, there are some precautions to be taken. There must be water or liquid in a pressure cooker. The rubber seal needs to be cleaned frequently and, when the rubber seal warps/stretches and no longer seals, it needs to be replaced. There are also certain foods that CANNOT be cooked in a pressure cooker like rice, dry beans, etc. The pressure control valve operates to regulate the amount of pressure and releases extra pressure otherwise the unit would blow up (very dangerous!). Most pressure cookers (required on all new ones) have a small rubber emergency stopper that will "blow off" in case the pressure is too high. I've seen this happen and my mother cleaning potatoes & meat from the ceiling!

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.

    Just been given crock pot with 3 settings can you explain them no manual came with pot


    It sure would help us to help you if you could get the model number off of the bottom of the unit. I can probably locate a user's manual with that information. Try this site to locate the manual: (my best guess without a model number)
    http://safemanuals.com/314159.php?k=84c8d7db0922eceeab89e8e236b92e45&ID=2854106&q=CROCK%20POT%20SMART%20POT
    (209k)
    Find the little blue print that says enter security code and then you can dounload the manual.
    The settings should be OFF High 4 High 6, Low 8 Low 10 and warm.

    1. Place food in stoneware according to recipe.


    2. Plug in Smart-Pot™ slow cooker. The Power light will begin to flash

    indicating that the unit is plugged in, but not turned on.

    HOW TO PROGRAM YOUR SMART-POT™ (CONT.)

    3. Push the Cook Time button to scroll through the timed cooking

    options. Push once and the 4 hour light will illuminate, twice and the

    6 hour light will come on, etc. Select the time based on the length of

    time indicated in the recipe. Two time options are usually given. The 4

    and 6 hour settings are the HIGH temperature setting and may be

    used when you want your food done quicker. The 8 and 10 hour

    settings correspond to the LOW temperature setting and is used for all

    day cooking. In addition your Smart-Pot™ can be set to the Warm

    Setting by scrolling through the timed cooking options until the warm

    light illuminates.


    NOTE: The Warm setting is for keeping already hot food warm. Do not use

    the warm setting to cook or reheat food.


    4. When the cooking time is completed, the Smart-Pot™ slow cooker will

    automatically shift to the Warm setting and the Warm light will come

    on. NOTE: We do not recommend using the Warm setting for more

    than 4 hours.


    5. To turn the Smart-Pot™ off push the OFF button. Unplug unit from the

    wall outlet.


    6. For other recipes that give a range of times, select the time closest

    to the setting on your Smart-Pot™. For instance a recipe calling for

    cooking time of 7 to 9 hours on LOW, set your Smart-Pot™ to 8 hours.

    NOTE: If power goes off then power light will blink and settings must be

    reset. If cook time is changed before the cycle is complete the time will
    reset to the new setting.

    I need an owners manual for the SCVC651


    I couldn't find the specific manual for this, but I did find some basic instructions on a personal review:
    "Rival calls this a SmartPot and describes this unit as "programmable". All this really means is that you can program the slow cooker to cook either on "High" or "Low" for up to 20 hours, in 30 minute increments and then it will automatically switch to the "Keep Warm" setting and keep your meal warm for hours. You cannot program multiple steps, such as going from the "High" to the "Low" setting. The red, LCD clearly displays the remaining cook time.
    Simply plug in the slow cooker, and then push the clearly marked buttons (with a pleasant, audible tone) to move from "Low" to "High" to "Keep warm" settings. Then push the Timer Button to set the desired cook time."

    Hopefully, this helps answer your questions!

    This slow cooker has 3 settings LOW, HIGH, & WARM
    When you plug the slow cooker in the display should show a "0". When you press the "COOK TIME" button, the display should go to 1 then 2 then 3 etc. each time the "COOK TIME" button is pressed.
