Question about Rival 38601 Smart Pot 6-Quart

Open Question

My crock pot boils on low is this supposed to happen? I constantly have to stir what is in there so it doesn't burn. I could never leave anything in there except a roast without veggies all day.

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.

On heat setting "low", how long before boiling starts? Assume water inside.


it may never boils on low setting that is not enough heat to BOIL guess that's why it's called SLOW cooker

On the dial there is off, low, high and auto. What does the auto do? If I select auto is there a timer on it that shuts the pot down after a time? Is fo what is the time.


There is no timer -- with the dial set to auto, a thermostat opens and closes turning the heating element(s) on and off to keep the pot at a fairly constant temperature. The high setting can continually boil the contents, and can burn the food if not stirred. The low setting is for keeping contents warm.

I'd use "auto", if the pot is not going to be monitored.

I use my crock pot on low and it leaves yellow stains on my counter top. It has never got the counter that hot before to leave burn marks is there something going out on it?


Its insulation is probably gone bad. I would stop using it now, but if you must, put it on a fireproof surface, like your driveway....seriously, spend $30 and get a new one this could be a fire hazard!

HOW TO USE AUTO SETTING


It looks rather like my slow cooker which has a 3 position switch with LOW, HIGH and AUTO.
AUTO uses a thermostat control to prevent the contents from boiling. Useful if being left unwatched. HIGH setting can cause burning if contents not stirred, and LOW setting is only of use to keep things warm. Hope that helped.

Searching for pasta sauce recipe


Barbara....I understand -- I panicked to day when I couldn't find my CROCK-POT recipe book for my Chicken Cacciatore recipe. I think I have that same recipe book -- my CROCK-POT is avocado green. Tthere are two recipes for spaghetti, but I'm assuming that you want the "Italian Meat Sauce" recipe. If not, let me know and I'll send the other one.

Crock Pot Italian Meat Sauce

1 cup chopped onions
1 – 1 ½ pounds ground chuck, browned
2 cloves garlic
1 large can tomatoes (28 oz)
1 6-oz can tomato paste
2 stalks celery with tops, chopped
2 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons dried oregano
¼ teaspoon dried thyme
1 bay leaf
Put all ingredients in CROCK-POT. Stir thoroughly. Cover and cook on Low for 10 to 12 hours. (High: 3 to 5 hours).

Good and bad complaints.


Generally, they are all supposed to be good. It all depends on how we use them. You have undoubtedly been careful with your crock pot to have had it serve you for 30 years! Unfortunately, not all consumers are as careful as you.

Yes, there are instance when a particular line or batch may be faulty due to some manufacturing defects, but these show up immediately, and can always be replaced under warranty.

Don't go by complaints, etc you see on the net. These are the exceptions rather than the rule. That is the nature of ALL electronic/electrical goods - they are bound to fail at some time or the other. (That why we have sites like Fixya!) :) The complaints that you see are exactly that - complaints from a few people who either happened to get a defective product, or haven't used it carefully. The majority, however, are happy with their products :)

Hope that helped!

You should keep the lid on as much as possible. You are correct; once you open the lid, the liquid inside can quickly lose temperature at a rate of 10-15 degrees per minute.

Additionally, taking the top off allows steam to escape, which reduces the point of cooking in a slow cooker (cooking in a relatively closed system, with the steam condensing back to water and flowing back into the broth).

It's not doing a whole lot to the flavor (aside from causing the stew to thicken with the loss of water), but it is definitely causing the cooking to take longer than it should.
