No. It will not brown the meat. Just quick brown your meat and then put in the crock to cook. You will have seriously tender meat and it will be brown.

Where can i find a manual for ultrex pressure cooker?

The company had a major recall and went out of business. No manuals appear to be available on the web.
Here are some general instructions you can use:

1 Set up your cooker. Place your Ultrex Pressure Cooker on the stove. Remove the lid and pour in no more than 2 inches of water. Depending on what you are cooking the amount of water will vary. More water will ultimately cook larger amounts of food, but you will need to refer to your specific model's instructions on this matter.
  • 2 Put in the food you wish to cook. Close and lock the lid firm to the pot. Make sure it is locked securely so none of contents boil out of the top.

  • 3 Turn on your burner to high heat for approximately ten minutes. Allow the water to boil.
  • 4 Turn the stove down to a low setting after the water is boiling in the cooker. Flip the pressure valve closed and allow your food to simmer.

  • Set the pressure valve to ten pounds. For vegetables, cook 30 to 45 minutes. For meats, cook 45 to 60 minutes.5
  • 6 Open the pressure valve and allow the pressure to discharge. Unlock and remove the lid to find your fully cooked meal.

    Do you use water in a slow cooker

    Yes you do.
    It will not be like a pan on the stove although, because a crock pot does not lose as much moisture because it has a better seal. So For example
    Stew from a can already has enough moisture in it, so no water.
    A meat roast will want about an inch of water or a can of soup. A crock pot uses lower heat than a stove plus moisture (like steam) to cook.
    Enjoy the slow cooking adventure !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    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).

    Extra metal piece in base

    I have a west bend crockery cooker, model 84316. It was given as a gift. My wife has tried to use it 3 times and each time the outside becomes to hot to touch, while the contents of the removable crock gets only luke warm. I also noticed the bottom of the cooker has turned brown from excess heat, looks like a possible fire hazzard. Does anyone have this problem, is there a recall on this product.

    Yes, it's not unusual for the outside to be too hot to touch. A slow cooker won't get as hot as a bare burner on the stove, but it still gets hot enough to cook meat. The outside has a bit of insulation, but it still may get hot enough to cause pain, melt a bread bag, etc. Be sure and place it where no one will accidentally touch it.

    To add water or not to add water????

    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
