SOURCE: can I buy a temperature knob for my slow cooker

Check for a listing for "appliances-household-supplies & parts" in the yellow pages. Call them and ask if they carry knobs. If they do, take your slow cooker with you to make sure you get the correct knob. Best of Luck

Which base are you referring to? The removal black base yes, you need to add water according to what you are cooking for example a stew, a chicken, beans etc., The cooking element, which is the base after you remove the black base in which the glass cover fits over you do not need to add water.

Do i need to add water to my slow cooker if so where do put it


All the ingredients in a crock-pot meal go into the ceramic pot. You don't add any water to the cooker itself. The cooker is basically just a holder for the pot and provides the heat. Any liquid goes into the pot with the rest of the goodies. The pot on many models is removable for serving and cleaning, while the base should be kept away from water (like any other electrical appliance).

If you need a manual for your cooker, you can try here for Rival brand models, here for Hamilton-Beach products, and here for West Bend. Chances are you'll find your model or one similar enough that it should clear up any questions.

Now, what's on the menu?

Use of an old slow cooker


NO!
it should say on the metal below the ceramic pot to not get it wet

slow cookers make enough heat to heat the contents of the ceramic pot.

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
