Question about Crock Pots & Slow Cookers

1 Answer

Timer to start and stop cooking

I want to buy a timer like you use to turn on lights and hook my crockpot to this so I can start cooking while I'm at work. I want to turn on the pot and stop the pot with a timer. Is this ok for a crockpot that does not have a built in timer?

Hi the crockpot controls have erased the settings could you tell me what is hi...low or heat

Most crockpots have only two settings: low and high/heat. Use the high/heat setting for dishes that will cook in 2-4 hours. The low setting is for your "all day" cooking, typically 6-8 hours.

Hope this helps.

How can i switch my rival programmable crockpot to warm? It was cooking too long and I'd like to switch it

A crock pot is an ALL DAY cooking methodology and should not be altered. Fire and personal injury are possible results.

Turned on pot and power light keeps blinking. Cannot set to hours needed to cook.

Purchased a new crockpot from Hamilton Beach to resolve this issue.

Replacemnet Liner for Crock Pot.. I want yours

I have a stoneware round, forest green liner for a Rival crockpot. I think it's for a 6 quart because I only buy the larger crockpots for my cooking needs. If you would like this, please email me at so we can exchange addresses.

Rival 38601 Smart Pot 6-Quart Slow Cooker can't get to to go to warm

Here is the manual for this cooker; page E4 and E5 tells you details of programming/timer/temperature. Check through everything and see if you can figure anything out. after cooking, the unit should automatically switch to warm mode, if it isn't doing this then unfortunately i think it needs a replacement control board - probably not worth doing. If you want to give it a try then post again and we can try and source you the bits Hope this helps :)
