Slow cooker temperatures

I have purchased a 1.5 litre team international slow cooker, and ,trying it for the first time, I find that it boils quite vigerously whatever setting I put it on. Is this normal, and ,if so, what is the point of having high and low settings?

After the slow cooker boils is it better to turn it down to low


it is a slow cooker for the purpose of slow cooking so turn it to low and it will keep cooking
If you want fast cooking on high temp use a pot or a pan .it will be cheaper.

Should the lid have a steamer hole in it?


Slow cooking is done at below boiling point, so the lid doesn't require a steam hole. That is why you need to boil such things as beans before putting them into the slow cooker, as otherwise they never reach that temperature and can give you belly ache.

How to use the slow cooker on the oval cooks essential pressure cooker


I have a Tricity TSC09 6 litre Slow Cooker and I just love it its so handy, if your gone for even 10 hours it keeps your dinner warm after the cooking time runs out. I smashed the lid and was so gutted I tried for hours online to find a replacement lid with no luck. I went shopping and bought a very cheap 6 to 7 Quart or 6 to 6.5 litre Slow cooker / Crock pot of the same shape the removable pot and lid fit. I bought a cookworks, signature, 24 euro 6.5 litre oval dog standard slow cooker and the lid fit, now I also have a removable pot replacement as well just in case I smash that too. So happy I have my Slow cooker back again.

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.

    Can you boil in a slow cooker?


    Generally, with enough heat and good insulation, water will boil. Boiling is caused by non-uniform heating - some spots are hotter.
    My wife's slow cooker boils even on the low setting -slowly, but it boils.
    Our rice cooker never used to boil until I burned tomato rice in it (OOPs). Don't make tomato rice in a rice cooker.

    What is the function of both the Auto and the High setting on the cooker?


    I am not sure if it is the same as the Durabrand model I have but mine heats the food to boiling and then cooks and lowers the temperature automatically, it is handy if you are late preparing a meal, for example 12 noon and you want it ready for 7pm? Hope this helps. High settings usually boil quickly and is handy to use for the first hour after that reduce the temperature and you can knock at least an hour off the cooking time. Or you can use high throughout the meal and halve the slow cooking time, however this uses much more electricity than on slow.

    once the slow cooker reaches a temperature set point it shuts off. when the internal temperature drops the thermostat turns on again, otherwise even at a low heat, everything inside would boil away. Hence the term "slow cooker."
