Cooking unevenly and burning the food

When I cook with the crock pot alot of the meals are burning or cooking unevenly and I don't know why. I am following the receipe for the correct amount of time and it still burns or does not cook evenly. I don't understand what I could be doing wrong? Also the burning smell from the unit When does that go away? I've used the cooker a least 10 times and I still smell the burning from the unit. Thank you.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Can I reheat foods in my Rival Slow Cooker?

No, it's not really safe (the food may not reach a high enough temp.)

Also, if you did try, it would take hours to get hot enough &the food wouldn't be as appealing--dried out etc.

Try reheating in your microwave instead.

My crock pot has 0;I,II and a pic of pot ..what do these symbols mean and how do i know when my food is done

The pot setting is for keeping the cooked food warm. Crock pots are not automatic food cookers User interaction is needed to turn it on or off, much like a stove. In other words, human interaction is required. I suggest using a timer or alarm.

Have lost instruction book, how do I use it?

What sort is it? I have a Sunbeam - I just throw in all the ingredients for say, a casserole, in the morning before work. Leave it on low heat setting, ensuring that I have a tin of tomatoes or a mug of beef or chicken stock to keep everything moist, put the lid on and about 7 hours later hey presto! The meal is ready. No real preparation , I just use a normal meal recipe, and ensure i have enough moisture for the cooking as I would in the oven.

My crock pot leaks!!!! What am I doing wrong.

If you are putting the food inside the ceramic crock and not over filling it, then you are doing nothing wrong and have a cracked crock.
If you are overfilling it and putting the lid on so it bubbles over when the temperature gets up, then you need to add less food or cook on a lower temperature.

I don't know what I would do without a crock pot; filling it with good things in the morning and coming home to a completed meal at the end of the day is a lifesaver.
Bon apetite!

Why does my crock pot cook at too high a heat?

With something that small, there is not a lot of resources for parts and repair. The item is considered a throw away. You could contact customer service at RIVAL and see what they say about the issue. Could be mis-wired or something like that. The only easily replaced part for that is the stoneware.

What is the function of both the Auto and the High setting on the cooker?

I am not sure if it is the same as the Durabrand model I have but mine heats the food to boiling and then cooks and lowers the temperature automatically, it is handy if you are late preparing a meal, for example 12 noon and you want it ready for 7pm? Hope this helps. High settings usually boil quickly and is handy to use for the first hour after that reduce the temperature and you can knock at least an hour off the cooking time. Or you can use high throughout the meal and halve the slow cooking time, however this uses much more electricity than on slow.
