As to the the slow cooker recipes...Try going to www.goodbks.com and search for "Fix-It and Forget-It" cookbook for starters.

As to then 4 or 8 hour timing I'm assuming you don't have an owners manual for it. I would start out treating it as a 4-hour timer and adjusting the times for various dishes aas you learn the cookers "personality"

Hope I helped a little!

What temperature does the Ultrex slow cooker cook at on high or low?


Have you used it before or is it new? Slow cookers vary when it comes to cooking on low or high. If you never used it before, I suggest that you find a slow cooker recipe that cooks slow 10-12 hours and see how that works.

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 the user instructions for use


    Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
    I see I am nearly a month late in replying to your post. I just answered another post and when I finished I saw your question.
    This is driectly from the user's manual that you can find here with some difficulty:
    http://safemanuals.com/314159.php?k=84c8d7db0922eceeab89e8e236b92e45&ID=2854106&q=CROCK%20POT%20SMART%20POT
    (Avoid answering questions by looking for the blue text that says "security code" and clicking that) Then enter the 4 digit code to download the manual that is 209k)

    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.

    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.

    That is pretty much the entire user instructions. Everything else is warnings, cautions, and oh yes; don't submerge it in water yadda yadda....

    Hi i have a hamilton beach crock pot that only has low, med, and high to cook with. i cannot find my book that has the times or what to put the crock pot on for port tenderlon and how many hours to cook...


    Most recipes will have different times to cook meat, I would make good use of www.google.com and look at recipes and suggestions there. Generally speaking I would say you're going to cook that on low for about 4 hours, but it really does depend on the amount of meat you're cooking and your personal preference.

    Recipe didn't turn out ...


    It sounds as if the temp was to high for a shorter period of time. Try cooking longer at a lower temperatur.

    Hope that helps; le me know.

    No manual for my old Crock Watcher by Proctor Silex


    The auto setting cooks on high for the first hour, then adjusts the setting to low for the remaining cooking time.
    Auto Shift allows the slow cooker to heat up to high and then internally shift down to low, so it gives more flexibility in cooking time. Example: A certain recipe may take 4 hours on high, 5-6 hours on Auto Shift and 7-8 hours on Low.
