Temperature This is my second slow cooker as I wanted another one for the cottage. I had to change it twice at the store as it does not heat enough. After 8 hours, vegetables are still crunchy. Guess what ? my third one has the same problem. The store refuses to give me my money back. Any suggestion ? (beside buying a Rival ?) Thanks !

My Hamilton Beach slow cooker stopped going to keep warm after time was up, model 33966C

If your Hamilton Beach slow cooker model 33966C is no longer switching to the "keep warm" setting after the cook time is up, there could be a few possible causes:
  1. The thermostat may be malfunctioning. The thermostat controls the temperature of the slow cooker and if it's not working correctly, it could prevent the slow cooker from switching to the "keep warm" setting.
  2. The timer may be malfunctioning. The timer controls the cook time and if it's not working correctly, it could prevent the slow cooker from switching to the "keep warm" setting after the cook time is up.
  3. The heating element may be malfunctioning. If the heating element is not working properly, the slow cooker may not be able to maintain the correct temperature to switch to the "keep warm" setting.
  4. The lid may not be properly sealed. If the lid is not properly sealed, heat may be escaping and the slow cooker may not be able to maintain the correct temperature to switch to the "keep warm" setting.
It is recommended to try to unplug the slow cooker for a few minutes and then plug it back in to see if that solves the problem. If the problem persists, it may be best to contact Hamilton Beach customer service for further assistance or to have the slow cooker repaired or replaced.

Corningware sc40 programmable slow cooker not heating

If your Corningware SC40 programmable slow cooker is not heating, there are a few things you can check:
  1. Check that the slow cooker is properly plugged in and the outlet is working.
  2. Check the temperature setting. Make sure the temperature is set to a level that should be producing heat.
  3. Check the lid. Make sure the lid is on securely and there are no gaps where heat can escape.
  4. Check the heating element. If the heating element is not working, the slow cooker will not heat up. You may need to replace the heating element or have it serviced by a professional.
If none of these solutions solve the problem, it may be best to contact the manufacturer or a professional appliance repair service for further assistance.

Della 12 Quart 1600-Watt Electric Pressure Cooker Multi-Functional Timer Slow Cook XL Part number: 048-GM-48261 Unable to get this cooker to slow cook.

it is possible that you have misunderstood the instructions
for a slow cooker you have low medium and high
press slow cook and on low and in 8 hours the food is cooked
I see from your statements that you expect the cooker to be set on slow cook but cook at a high temperature fast
if it says slow cook --9 hours and the temp is 125 degrees , have you waited 9 hours to see if it is cooked as the slow cooking process is by the gradual build up of heat in the container that is not expelled by radiation to the air
in a pressure cooker , that build up of heat also builds up pressure and so it cooks better
other solution--- if it is not right return it for a warranty refund or if out of warranty , junk it and get a different make

On heat setting "low", how long before boiling starts? Assume water inside.

Always add hot stock to a slow cooker for best results. They never boil food.

Can you boil in a slow cooker?

Generally, with enough heat and good insulation, water will boil. Boiling is caused by non-uniform heating - some spots are hotter.
My wife's slow cooker boils even on the low setting -slowly, but it boils.
Our rice cooker never used to boil until I burned tomato rice in it (OOPs). Don't make tomato rice in a rice cooker.

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.

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.
