Question about Select Brands SC-25 2.5-Quart
We purchased a durabrand HSC20 slow cooker for the first time and there are no instructions on how to use it. I can understand that the various setting make the outer casing get hot, But do you need to put water inside it so that the ceramic pot cooks the food or do you just leave it standing?
Sorry we are complete slow cooker virgins and are trying to safe than sorry!
Slow cookers do not need water in the base unit to cook the food in the ceramic insert. The ceramic insert gets hot from the base and cooks the food. Here is a good guide to cooking with a slow cooker. enjoy

In reply to other problems, I have a Durabrand HSC20 Slow Cooker and same as others find the instructions somewhat limited. I telephoned ASDA customer support who told me the auto function is for example, say you got up late like me...and you put a casserole in the slow cooker at 12 noon, you want it to be ready for 7pm, use the auto switch as this brings the food to the boil quickly cooks it for an hour and a half then lowers the temperature for the remainder of the cooking time...clever huh?
The cooker will cook a small joint of meat without liquid or a small chicken, the meat just falls off the bone!
I also use casserole mixes such as Colemans and Asda's own and have got really good results.
Hope this helps.

I have one of these and yes the instructions are rubbish!
I usually put mine on in the morning pre 9, to have it ready for around 6pm.
My advise is to brown any meat - just lightly to seal it, then add your onion/veg herbs e.t.c, add a small amount of water, say 30mls (if the recipe has no stock) then put your meat on top. Lid on, turn to low and leave.
Delicios meat that fall from the bone and the veg should be done too.
