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.

Broken pot to a crock pot


Here is Rival's parts page for your model. They show two different versions for your number, and the stoneware for both are out of stock. But there's a "contact us" link so maybe they can tell you when the parts will be available, or recommend another suitable replacement.

Our cermaic pot of our crock pot cracked when using it today is this a common problem its only a year old and has been used two times...


No this is not a common problem.
The ceramic bowl should last for years if handled correctly.
It may have had an unseen stress crack causing the premature failure.

Avoid putting cold liquid or items into the hot ceramic bowl/pot. This will cause the bowl/pot to crack and can be very unsafe when it pops. The reverse is also true, avoid putting hot liquid or items into the cold ceramic bowl/pot.

It is the sudden changes in temperature that can cause cracks to form.

Hope this helps!

You might try the automotive adhesive that is used to glue rear-view mirrors to the windshield. I have never tried this, so you are on your own.

Funny smell coming from Rival 38601 Smart Pot 6-Quart


I had a similar smell coming from my crock Pot when I used it the first couple of times. After about the second or third time, the smell went away. I always figured it was the metals and such heating up to such a high temperature for the first time.

It never seemed to effect the taste fo the food....and my family is still alive!! :)

Hope this helps!

Ultrex pressure cooker model innova 14240


Pressure cookers are only slightly more complicated than crock pots. In fact, you can think of them as the opposite of Crock pots. Where a crock pot needs 2-3 times as long to cook something, the pressure cooker needs only 1/2 to 1/3 of the time.

These are not that complicated and haven't changed in the last 50 years. The only real hard part is being sure is doesn't explode; not that hard: don't cook things that would foam, like pasta or potatoes. Just read some recipes on the internet or get a recipe book at a bookstore, used book store (super-cheap)or the library. My best advice is to make sure you use the lowest possible heat that still allows steam to escape at a whisper. That will keep things from burning (or scorching) on the bottom, which can give a harsh taste and make clean-up more work. Just do it.
