POLARIZED PLUG
POLARIZED PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the risk of electric shock, this plug is intended to fit into a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plugin anyway. If the plug fits loosely into the AC outlet or if the AC outlet feels warm do not use that outlet.

POWER CORD INSTRUCTIONS:
A short power-supply cord is used to reduce the risk resulting from
it being grabbed by children, becoming entangled in, or tripping
over a longer cord.

NOTICES:

  1. Some countertop and table surfaces are not designed to withstand the prolonged heat generated by certain appliances. Do not set the heated unit on a finished wood table. We recommend placing a hot pad or trivet under your slow cooker to prevent possible damage to the surface.
  2. During initial use of this appliance, some slight smoke and/or odor may be detected. This is normal with many heating appliances and will not recur after a few uses.
  3. Please use caution when placing your stoneware on a ceramic or smooth glass cooktop stove, countertop, table, or another surface. Due to the nature of the stoneware, its rough bottom may scratch some surfaces if caution is not used. Always place heat-resistant protective padding under the stoneware before setting it on a table, countertop, or another surface.

Change the way you ‘role.
Enjoy delicious casseroles, lasagnas, desserts and more.
The Crock-Pot® Casserole Crock™ Slow Cooker will cook all day while you’re away. And can be easily be taken on the go to parties and potlucks.

CASSEROLE CROCK™ SLOW COOKER COMPONENTS

HOW TO USE YOUR CROCK-POT® CASSEROLE CROCK™ SLOW COOKER

NOTE: This unit is designed to cook recipes low and slow. We recommend using casserole, lasagna, dessert and other recipes that are meant to be slow cooked over a longer period of time.

  1. Place the stoneware into the heating base, add your ingredients into the stoneware and cover with the lid.
    NOTE: Unit should not be in the locked position while cooking.
  2. Plug in your Crock-Pot® Casserole Crock™ Slow Cooker and select the temperature setting. Refer to your specific recipe for precise cook time.
    NOTE: WARM is ONLY for keeping already cooked food warm.
    DO NOT cook on the WARM setting. We do not recommend using the WARM setting for more than 4 hours.
  3. When cooking is done, unplug your Casserole Crock™ and allow it to cool before cleaning.

USAGE NOTES:

  • If you suspect that the power has gone out, the food may be unsafe to eat. If you are unaware of how long the power was out, we suggest you discard the food inside.
  • For recipes that require a range of times, select the time closest to the setting on your slow cooker. For example, to cook a recipe calling for a cooking time of 7 to 9 hours on LOW, cook for 8 hours.
  • To avoid over or under-cooking, always fill the stoneware ½ to ¾ full and conform to recommended cook times.
  • Do not overfill stoneware. To prevent spillover, do not fill stoneware higher than ¾ full.
  • Always cook with the lid on for the recommended time. Do not remove the lid during the first two hours of cooking to allow the heat to build up efficiently.
  • Always wear oven mitts when handling the lid or stoneware.
  • Unplug when cooking is done and before cleaning.
  • Removable stoneware is ovenproof and microwave safe. Do not use removable stoneware on gas or electric burner or under broiler. Refer to chart on following page.
  • The Casserole Crock™ stoneware was designed to use for cooking inside the heating base, and then be removed and transferred directly to the table for serving. Use a trivet to protect your countertop or table when serving from the stoneware.
  • The removable stoneware is also oven-safe. If desired, you can cook your recipe in the oven, and then transfer it to the heating base to take on the go or to keep warm while serving.

TIPS

  • When cooking dishes like bread pudding, strata and pasta, push pieces of bread and pasta into liquid mixture to moisten before cooking.
  • Unless the recipe instructs to do so, do not lift the lid during cooking. Significant heat can be lost and the cooking will be delayed.
  • For a crisper or more browned top, turn off slow cooker when cooking is complete and remove casserole from the base. Transfer to a preheated oven (350 to 400°F) and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Allow casserole dishes to stand for 10 to 15 minutes before serving, allowing the food to set up before cutting or scooping.
  • Coat sides and bottom of casserole dish with cooking spray or butter before cooking to make clean-up easier.
