Have you used it before or is it new? Slow cookers vary when it comes to cooking on low or high. If you never used it before, I suggest that you find a slow cooker recipe that cooks slow 10-12 hours and see how that works.
Hi, That is so that the crock pot goes on high heat to get things heated up faster and then shifts automatically to low after it is hot...so that it does not over cook your food when left for a whole day...
Hi, well, Auto means that it uses an internal, weight & temperature sensor to determine the Cooking time of whatever is in it. It will then "Cook" until "It" thinks it is "Done" and turn off at the end.
I believe that they are NOT that accurate? But a possible time saver nevertheless.
Pressure cookers are only slightly more complicated than crock pots. In fact, you can think of them as the opposite of Crock pots. Where a crock pot needs 2-3 times as long to cook something, the pressure cooker needs only 1/2 to 1/3 of the time.
These are not that complicated and haven't changed in the last 50 years. The only real hard part is being sure is doesn't explode; not that hard: don't cook things that would foam, like pasta or potatoes. Just read some recipes on the internet or get a recipe book at a bookstore, used book store (super-cheap)or the library. My best advice is to make sure you use the lowest possible heat that still allows steam to escape at a whisper. That will keep things from burning (or scorching) on the bottom, which can give a harsh taste and make clean-up more work. Just do it.
