Question about Breville Crock Pots & Slow Cookers

Open Question

I purchased a Breville Fast Slow cooker today & was very excited to use it. Trying a beef casserole, I seared the onions, set them aside, seared the meat & added the wine & herbs, set it for 20 mins. All going fine up until now. I realeased the pressure & took the lid off to add the vegs. Now the lid will not lock back in place. I have aligned it correctly but it will just not go back into the lock position. Am I doing something wrong or what could it be??

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

SOURCE: durabrand replacement slow cooker lid

freddiej - my base got 'fried' somehow and won't work now. I have the lid & inside I would be happy to send to you if you can't find the manufacturer. 
I can't even find out how to order another base. Durabrand is obviously the maker of many, cheaper items like cookware and electronic speakers.
you can contact me at libertybrooke at yahoo.com if you want the lid.
God bless.

SOURCE: Presto Pressure Cooker Model 606

I have an old presto. The single weight is usually a 15psi weight. Cooking times vary with different foods and you could easily find a guide on the internet. Usually use about an inch of water, place in food, cover, and heat on high until weight starts jiggling. This is when you turn down heat until weight only jiggles 2-3 times per minute. This is also when you start timing the cooking. Hope I've helped,
Dan

I have never had a slow cooker in my life and found this one in a garage sale without the manual. How does it work?


Yes you can use any cheaper cuts of meat or chicken and yes less liquid is used in slow cookers. add hard veges n use green veges for end of cooking time. cook for 6 or 8 hrs on low. Yeilds ecellent results. Find slow cooker books for great meals n desserts. I use mine every week.

No instruction for slow cooker


Difficult to say, obviously it depends on the brand and model of the slow cooker, because wattages vary. I would suggest checking out the website for the manuafacturer or calling their Customer Care Center to obtain a copy of the Owners manual if you don't already have one.

Poor fitting lid


Most lids on crocks are loose fit due to pressure release that is required in most receipts... read your receipt for example BEAN SOUPS, or LENTILS and you will find that the should be tilted for proper cooking.
Cooking time in a crock is different from stove top or oven cooking... Remember the saying that "Heat cooks and fire burns" ... well, never is this more true than with your new slow cooker. So here are a few examples for you to try:
FIRST RECEIPT: take out some fresh or frozen meat your choice' dice up and onion or simply just cut the onion in 1/2 for easy removal later. I tend to season/salt>>> my pork, lamb , and chicken; however I do season/salt beef if I am only cooking it in water>>> for like tender shredded beef tacos. Anyway set your crock on high in the morning or at night before going to bed
( warning do not leave your crock unattended if you have children under 12 years of age around that might try to serve themselves when the crock is cooking)and don't except to have the children not want to investigate you savory dish>> they might and will get 2nd degree burns from a 215 degree cooking temp.
SECOND RECEIPT>>
Try a 7 or 15 Bean Soup add your smoked turkey or pork ham to the pot with seasoning/salt and an onion. set on high and go to work . When you cook home you and or your family will be delighted to find a wonderful home cooked meal waiting for your taste buds to enjoy!!!
good luck
