Paula deen pressure cooker. Can I use it for slow cooking? What is temp of keep warm? Could put lid on loose. Also, timing notches are mixed into keep warm button. I overcooked my first batch


A pressure cooker is NOT anything close to a slow cooker. The cooking philosophy are practically totally opposites. A pressure cooker basically cooks your food in a fraction of time because it is under pressure. A slow cooker takes hours.

The whole idea of using a pressure cooker is that it is sealed and applies pressure to cook the food faster. The lid needs to be sealed for the pressure cooker to operate properly. It is frequently referred to as "infusion" cooking now days.

You need to read the instruction book that came with the pressure cooker. Pressure cookers usually cook for less than an hour--my homemade pressure cooker spaghetti sauce is cooked in less than 30 minutes. They are nice and were very popular long before anyone thought of microwaves and slow cookers. However, there are some precautions to be taken. There must be water or liquid in a pressure cooker. The rubber seal needs to be cleaned frequently and, when the rubber seal warps/stretches and no longer seals, it needs to be replaced. There are also certain foods that CANNOT be cooked in a pressure cooker like rice, dry beans, etc. The pressure control valve operates to regulate the amount of pressure and releases extra pressure otherwise the unit would blow up (very dangerous!). Most pressure cookers (required on all new ones) have a small rubber emergency stopper that will "blow off" in case the pressure is too high. I've seen this happen and my mother cleaning potatoes & meat from the ceiling!

I've lost the instructions on how to use my slow cooker. Do I need to put water in the base?


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 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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The outside of my slow cooker gets very hot, is that normal? Also, on the low setting the ingredients seem to at a pretty high boil.


Yes, many models have hot outsides. To check temp, fill with water, put on low for 1 hour, check with an instant read thermometer. If it is over about 200 (normal low temp), your pot is running very hot.

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
