The stoneware is remarkably durable and is actually designed to be used in a dishwasher for easy cleaning. If the interior is part of the heater, add some dish soap and enough water to cover the bottom, then scrub it clean.
The water will cause the electrical components to fail, or worse, turn into an electrocution hazard. Generally speaking, most items that are part of your Crock-Pot product can be cleaned with a damp cloth and soapy water.
The enamel in Crock-Pot products is meant to be highly durable, but it doesn’t stand up very well to abrasion. So don’t use steel wool, “scrubber” sponges, or highly abrasive materials to clean it.
Having a hard time trying to get some stuck cheese or BBQ sauce off your slow cooker’s bottom? By letting it sit for 10 hours or so, most food will have softened up to the point that you won’t need a specialty brush.
If you’re having a very hard time, fill your crock pot’s container with water and set it to “cook” for a couple of hours. Vinegar and heavy scrubbing with a soft sponge will remove residue.
Vinegar is a cure-all when it comes to cleaning, and yes, it can eat away stains on a crock pot’s interior remarkably well. For extremely tough stains, add baking soda and dish soap to the water trick above.
The baking soda acts as a natural deodorizer and can also help break down grease that’s caked onto the interior of the container. If you splash it with cold water while it’s still warm to the touch, you also run the risk of causing heat shock.
At the risk of sounding a little biased, I tend to be of the school that most slow cookers are fairly similar when it comes to their maintenance. Or, if you want to play it safe, refer to your slow cooker’s owner’s manual.
Let’s say you want to look at your Crock-Pot product’s official instructions, and you just realized that you threw out the manual after you got the cooker. Thankfully, Crock-Pot is an awesome company, and they have a bunch of their manuals and cleaning advice up on their official website.
They’re technically both the same thing, but one refers to a specific company that is famous for making the product. So if you use “crock pot” as a way to discuss a slow cooker, you’re technically not wrong.
Baskets with multiple layers of food (such as French fries) will need to be shaken partially through the cooking cycle. Some maximum food sizes are: French fries: approximately 1 lb.
Steak Muffins: 4 (standard cupcake size) Vegetables: 1/2 lb. Air fryer models 35050 and 35051 have a cooking frying basket that is 7" in diameter and 4" in height.
Remember to allow space between pieces of food to allow hot air to flow through, and multiple layers of food (such as French fries) will need to be shaken partially through the cooking cycle. You can cook a wide variety of foods in an air fryer, from snacks and appetizers to meats and seafood.
Frozen foods like chicken nuggets, mozzarella sticks, and fish sticks can all be cooked using air fry technology. You’ll get even browning on the outside of steaks, pork chops, burgers, and chicken wings while keeping the inside flavorful and juicy.
Even delicate vegetables, flaky fish fillets, muffins and pastries can be cooked in an air fryer. Refer to your Use & Care for foods, amounts, settings, and cooking times.
If you desire an extra-crispy texture, just a light misting of vegetable oil will do the trick. Fresh foods, like chicken wings will require a misting of oil to have a browned and crisp appearance.
Just place the food directly into the frying basket, select your time and temperature or choose from one of the 6- pre-programmed cooking settings. The air fryer will alert you with an audible beep when your food is ready.
When cooking foods that are layered in the basket (such as French fries), shaking the contents of the basket is necessary to ensure even cooking and to prevent the pieces from sticking together. It's a good idea to shake the basket periodically when cooking most foods so all surfaces are exposed to the air flow.
We do not recommend using aluminum foil or parchment paper in the basket because it can block the air flow, which is essential for proper operation of an air fryer. Before cleaning, make sure the air fryer is unplugged and has cooled completely.
Remove the nonstick frying basket and the pan and wash in hot, soapy water. The outside of the air fryer can be wiped with a soft, damp cloth.
You can clean the interior of the air fryer by simply wiping it down with a damp cloth. Follow “How to Use the Air Fryer” in your Use & Care to set timer.
Excessive oil dripped into the Pan or splattered onto the heating coils. Refer to the USDA website for proper cooking oneness temperatures.
Both use a permanent HEPA filter to remove Captures 99% of Pet Dander, Dust, Dust Mites, Pollen, and Mold / Mildew Spores As Small as 3 Microns From the Air. Carbon filters can be purchased on Amazon or by visiting hamiltonbeach.com.
The Pet Air Purifiers can cover 140 sq. The Allergen Reducer functions as an air cleaner by helping to remove particulates (such as pet dander, dust, pollen, mold / mildew spores, and smoke) from the air.
A fan draws air through the sides of the front panel. The permanent filter than removes particles as small as 3 microns from the air at 99% effectiveness.
The purified air is then released through the back of the unit. Do not block the air intake and outlet grills with drapes, curtains, or blinds.
If there still is reduced performance, the Air Purifier carbon filters may need to be replaced and / or the HEPA filter may need to be cleaned. (If applicable) Replace Permanent HEPA and Carbon Filters.
Air purifiers capture a wide range of particle sizes that are airborne and pass through the filter media, some of which may be even smaller than the size of coronavirus similar to that of COVID-19. In the meantime, we recommend that all consumers follow CDC guidelines for protecting oneself from COVID-19 and continue to use their Truer Air Purifiers to improve their indoor air quality.
Carbon Filters should be replaced every 90 days, or sooner, depending on usage conditions. Truer offers 3 types of replacement filters those that are best suited to tobacco, pet or usual household odors.
Replacement Carbon Filters may be purchased online through a number of retailers. Press firmly on Foil Bubble on the cartridge to activate.
A red line will appear a few moments later on the left side of the holder to indicate it has been correctly activated. Slide activated Cartridge into the Plastic Holder on unit.
The activated Cartridge will “count down” for 2 months, indicating that it is time to replace the filter. Pull tab towards the back of the Air Purifier to remove the base.
Always cover ice with a liquid and process in small batches, using the highest speed available, and pulse until satisfied with texture. Always process in small batches and Pulse on and off (limiting run time) until mixture is at its desired texture.
Turn motor on low and allow running while dispensing. It is made from material approved for food contact by the FDA, Food & Drug Administration, and by NSF, National Sanitary Foundation.
If the blades do not spin freely, the cutting unit needs to be replaced. Once the blender base (without container) is cool, plug it in and turn it on to see if it works properly.
Helpful Hint: Rinse the container with a little diluted bleach and water solution. The speeds give flexibility in the amount of power allowed from the motor to satisfy a variety of blending applications.
The blender pulls a higher wattage the first few seconds that it is turned on. This is Peak Power and is important because the first few seconds are the most strenuous on the motor.
Place the blender jar on the base and turn the handle counterclockwise to loosen. It differs among models and types of material used for your specific blenders.
The glass jar is top rack dishwasher safe. The cutting unit is not dishwasher safe and should be washed with hot soapy water.
Helpful Hint: While the container is dishwasher safe, for best long-term use and care you should hand wash and dry it. The rating label is located on the bottom or rear of your blender motor housing.
Raise the lever to its highest point and push the lever to the right or left (depending on your model) until it pops out of its locked position. Raise the center tab up and slide the can opener to the rear.
The screws are located inside the top of the unit along with the cord. Longer screws allow the unit to be placed in the great majority of these households.
It probably does but, because the unit has an automatic shutoff feature, the blade does not pierce the can until the lever is depressed to activate the cutting operation. Place knob on back of lever into large end of keyhole, then push left or right (depending on your model) until it stops.
To open a can, push front of cutting assembly backwards to lift the blade. To remove the cutting assembly for washing, twist release button on front of can opener clockwise and lift out cutting assembly.
If you want to wash the cutting assembly in the dishwasher, remove flip-up magnet first by grasping one side near hinge and pulling out slightly until magnet releases from hinge. To attach: simply slide the brush on (do not be afraid, it will not break).
To detach: simply slide the brush off, using your thumb for strength. Insert a small screwdriver into voltage switch (on belly of steamer).
To fold for storage, allow the unit to cool, lift the handle release and turn one quarter turn, rotate handle into folded position, and lock handle release with one quarter turn. Model 10083 has the following features: a folding handle for easy storage, dual voltage (120-240v), a handy travel pouch, and a grooming brush.

Use: The safeguards in the Use & Care manual state to unplug the coffee maker after use. You should unplug all countertop electric appliances when finished using.
Unplugging the unit will disable the clock; however, it is not intended to be the principal time keeping device in the home. There is a drain hole in the rear of the coffee maker to prevent overfilling.
If the overflow is coffee, you may have used more than one tablespoon of coffee per cup of water or not fully seated either the brew basket and/or the carafe underneath the brew basket. Overflowing may happen more frequently with decaffeinated, flavored and finely-ground coffee.
Overflowing may occur if the paper filter collapses inside the brew basket. The warming plate is not designed to reheat cold coffee.
However, if there is water in the reservoir, the coffee maker will begin a new brew cycle. The Brew Selector allows you to select the strength of your coffee.
When using the Bold or Robust setting, hot water is dispensed more slowly over the grounds, allowing more coffee flavor to be extracted from the coffee grounds. Pour one pint of plain white vinegar (or coffee maker cleaner and descale) into the reservoir.
Refer to your Use & Care guide for tips specific to your coffee maker. Fill the stainless steel thermal carafe with boiling water and add a dishwasher tablet.
Can be purchased directly through our website and toll-free Consumer Service Line (800.851.8900) or from a Master Parts Distributor. Clean the unit with a calcified (like CLR), according to the instructions in your Use & Care guide (available online).
Most of the time, calcification will correct the problem because the unit may just be clogged. Try using an old toothbrush to gently clean the mesh screen and rinse away the buildup.
Turn the brew tank upside down over the kitchen sink, then press the dispensing valve (on the bottom of the tank) and flush with water for 30 seconds. My Prestation does not seem to be pumping the water through, or it may start and stop.

The LED light will blink for 5 seconds, then the coffee maker will turn off (O). Arabica beans are slightly more expensive but tend to produce better-tasting coffee.
If your coffee is too weak, try brewing using the BOLD setting or adjusting the water/coffee ratio by using slightly less water and/or slightly more grounds (be careful not to exceed the MAX line for grounds though). Be sure to use the BOLD setting for flavored, finely ground, premium brand ground coffees, and decaf coffees to prevent overflow.
Be careful not to over grind, since very finely ground coffee can cause The Scoop to overflow. Insert the spindle up into the motor head, with a twisting motion.
This will allow the notch on the spindle and gear inside the motor to connect. Once the unit has cooled down, you can lift the heater out of the way and wipe the drip tray clean.

NOTE: The food processor will not operate unless the bowl is properly locked. Holding handle firmly, turn bowl counterclockwise (to the right) until it unlocks.
NOTE: The food processor will not operate unless the lid is properly locked. Place one hand firmly on the lid and the other on the handle of the food processor bowl.
We recommend washing all attachments by hand and drying them immediately to prolong life. The Use and Care Safeguards section covers standard UL requirements.
Simply remove the cord from the outlet, then disconnect the prong from the grill. Yes, the grill and the drip tray (base) are dishwasher safe.
Yes, our Home Economist tested, and it proved to ease the cleanup process and not harm the grill or base. Make sure to turn the bag over at least once halfway through the cooking cycle to prevent burning.
As a safety precaution, units that do not have on/off switches should be unplugged from the outlet first. Example: If the cord was unplugged from the unit and it was dropped on a wet surface, it would be unsafe.
Yes, our Home Economist has cooked up to 6 hamburgers at one time on the top half. However, bear in mind that the top half does not have a drip tray so fatty meats should be avoided in case there are significant grease drippings.
NO, use only clear water in the reservoir unless directed otherwise in the Use & Care instructions. To protect the sole plate from scratches, never iron over buttons, zippers, metal rivets, or snaps.
To clean starch build-up and other residue from the Silverstone sole plate (feature found on selected models), unplug the iron and allow it to cool. With iron in upright position, clean the nonstick surface with a warm, sudsy cloth or sponge; wipe dry.
DO NOT USE any abrasive cleaners or metal scouring pads as they may damage the nonstick surface. To clean starch build-up and other residue from the Smooth Glide aluminum sole plate, unplug iron and allow it to cool.
With iron in upright position, clean the sole plate with a damp cloth or sponge and a paste made of baking soda and water. DO NOT USE abrasive cleaners or metal scouring pads as they will scratch the smooth surface.
It is best not to store the iron in dust prone areas such as a laundry room where dust can settle in the opening of the water reservoir; dust will eventually cause blockage and prevent the iron from steaming. Pumping the “Blast of Steam” button will cause the chamber to flood and the unit will leak or drip water from the vents.
Press button twice, allow the blast of steam to evaporate, then repeat. Tap water is recommended because it has minerals in it that actually “season” internal parts.
What causes rusty spots to come out of the steam vents? Leaving water in the iron when not in use may result in rusty looking steam.
Accumulation of minerals in water can block steam vents, preventing water from dripping into the steam chamber. The rating label is located on the heel (end) of your iron.
Also, only large pits found in certain fruits like peaches must be removed first. It is a good idea to allow the motor to cool during juicing.
The main thing to do to optimize juicing is to ensure that the basket area and pulp bin are cleaned often, because this is what slows the juicer down and causes the motor to heat up. Helpful Hint: Add about 1/2 cup bleach to dish water and allow external parts to soak.
However, if the motor does stop running, unplug and let it cool for 15 minutes. Yes, the unit is stable on the counter, and should remain in place with little movement during use.
The juicer may move slightly when first switched ON as the motor quickly ramps up to full speed. If you have been using the juicer for 15 minutes or more, the motor overload protection may have been activated.
Yes, the 3-inch food chute will accommodate many whole fruits and vegetables without rebutting. Citrus fruits, melons and mangoes should be peeled before juicing to minimize impact on flavor.
Try slower juicing action by pushing the food pusher down more slowly. Empty the pulp bin; then clean juice cover and strainer basket using a soft bristle brush and try again.
All removable parts can be washed in warm, soapy water or in the dishwasher. Do not allow food particles to dry on strainer basket.
Note Kettle lid and screen must be properly secured in place. Yes, all materials in content with boiling water are BPA free.
The second purpose is to minimize suspended particles (mineral scale) from being poured out of the kettle. Scale is caused by lime and calcium in hard water.
The second purpose is to minimize suspended particles (mineral scale) from being poured out of the kettle. Scale is caused by lime and calcium in hard water.
It is normal for stainless steel heating elements to discolor. Do not use abrasive scouring pads or cleaners since this may damage the stainless steel surface.
The blades are serrated and should remain sharp under normal usage. It may become warm when cutting dense foods or when used for an extended period of time.
If this occurs, unplug the knife and allow it to cool for a few minutes before proceeding. The blade will not release if the knife is being held at a 45-degree angle.
To release the blades, turn the knife to the “straight up position” and press the button. Grasp plastic guard, with hand away from cutting edge, and carefully pull until blades release.
For safety reasons, the electric knife cannot be locked in the “On” position. They have extra long 5 – 6 foot cords to allow for easy maneuvering.
Cordless knives require a battery pack that makes the knife significantly heavier and more expensive. Unplug the unit and ensure that the blades are securely inserted into the handle.
After washing and drying, immediately place blades into the protective sleeve for storage. If blades have separated or have fallen out, pick up by the plastic guard.
Hamilton Beach Electric Knives can be used to cut a variety of things such as: ham, bread, turkey, roast, brisket, fish, poultry, fruits, vegetables, and foam for DIY projects. It is not recommended cutting very hard things like bones and wood with the Electric Knives.
Please note that even with the correct consistency, the dough extrudes slowly at the beginning and speeds up over time. See Use & Care page 6 for tips to identify correct pasta consistency.
If your dough is too wet, press “START / STOP” button and unplug. Remove the lid and break up any clumps or balls of dough with your hands.
Please reference page 6 of the Use & Care for the correct dough consistency. If the consistency is correct and it is taking over 30 minutes to make pasta: please email email@example.com.
Once pasta is extruded, either cook pasta immediately, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or store in a freezer safe container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Some eggs or liquid mixtures may be thicker than the slot thickness.
If this happens, press “START / STOP” remove the lid and add the liquid mixture. See Use & Care page 6 for tips to identify correct pasta consistency.
If your dough is too dry, add 5-10ml of liquid and continue to mix. All removable parts are dishwasher safe (top rack only).
Please note: Do not mix dough with water as it will mud and be difficult to remove. If dough does not come out easily, place parts or disc in freezer for 30-60 min, then try again.
The Initial Test Run(Take a Test Run; page 6 of Pressure Cooker Use and Care) helps you become familiar with your Pressure Cooker. It takes 3 cups (711 ml) of water and a 2-minute cook cycle.
The Test Run is a great way to ensure that the Pressure Cooker is functioning properly, that the gasket is correctly installed in the lid, and for you to understand how sealing as well as steam release works. The Pressure Cooker’s Steam Release Valve is a safety device, that regulates the internal pressure of the Cooker by pressing weight on the Steam Release Stem.
The Steam Release Valve keeps the working pressure always under the 15 psi pressure rating by allowing excess steam to escape from the Cooking Pot. The Quick Release method is used when you want to stop the cooking immediately when the cycle ends.
Some recipes may call for natural release for a specified amount of time and then quick release to allow the remaining pressure to escape the Cooker. When the cooking cycle is complete, steam must be released before the Lid can be opened.
To release steam / pressure naturally (Natural Pressure Release) let the cooker sit approximately 10-30 minutes after cooking until the float valve goes down and Lid unlocks. Note: It may take longer depending on the amount of food being prepared. Choose quick release when you want to stop the cooking immediately when cycle ends.
Please note, this is not recommended if you’re cooking food with high starch content, which may cause spattering. This may take 10 to 30 minutes, or even longer, depending on the amount of food in the cooker.
Quick pressure release allows the cooker to cool down quickly by letting the steam out of the pressure cooker manually until the float valve drops. Automatic temperature control: Regulates the internal temperature of the pressure cooker based on the type of program selected by the user.
Electrical current and temperature fuse: Cuts off power if the current or internal temperature exceeds safety limits. Under normal use we do not anticipate any defect to develop with the Cooking Pot.
NOTE: When placing the cooking pot inside the appliance, ensure that the cooking pot is in direct contact with the heating plate, rotate slightly to the left and right unit it seats properly, or it will cause damage to the heating elements and even other components. The Gasket is dishwasher safe ; however to extend its life we recommend handwashing it.
High Pressure is recommended for almost all foods(i.e. meat, poultry, beans, etc). Low Pressure is used for delicate foods(i.e. rice, vegetables, etc).
When all the steam has exited the unit, the lid will automatically unlock. Remove Gasket from Lid by pulling out from under metal ring.
Pull up Steam Release Valve to remove from Lid. Hold Lid at an angle, and use a small, soft brush to clear the Float Valve, Steam Release Stem, and Pressure Relief Safety Valve of any debris.
Wash Steam Release Valve, Steam Release Valve Cover, Lid with warm, soapy water. Always add a minimum of 1 cup (237 ml) of water or other liquid.
Not setting the steam release valve to the CLOSE position for pressure-cooking. The cooking pot, gasket, roasting rack, rice measuring cup, rice paddle and condensation collector are dishwasher safe.
Though the gasket is dishwasher safe, to extend its life, we recommend hand washing it. 10 seconds after selecting your settings, the cooking process will start.
For all pressure-cooking programs the total amount of precooked food and liquid in the Cooking Pot should not pass the 2/3 line. Over filling the Cooking Pot may risk clogging the steam release and developing excess pressure.
Unlike other Pressure Cookers, the Hamilton Beach pressure cookers have True Slow ™ technology with 3 heat settings Programmed to ensure a gradual rise in temperature, just like a traditional slow cooker. Food doesn't overcook and slow cooker recipes come out just the way you expect.
Slow Cook Mode can be used in LOW, MEDIUM, or HIGH heat. As the cooker heats up and pressure builds, the float valve rises.
While in Standby mode, press and hold the “+” to turn the sound ON. The quick release method is used when you want to stop the cooking immediately when the cycle ends.
Some recipes may call for natural release for a specified amount of time and then quick release to allow the remaining pressure to escape the cooker. Note: When all pressure is released, Lid will automatically unlock.
Move the steam release valve to the OPEN position. Once all the steam is released, push the float valve down with a pen or long stick.
The BPA free Pressure Cooker Gasket is UL and FDA tested for safety. The Gasket is an integral part of the Pressure Cooker safety features.
If you notice tears, cracks, signs of leaking, deformation of the Gasket, or any other signs of damage you should replace it with a Hamilton Beach Gasket. The Gasket is dishwasher safe ; however to extend its life we recommend handwashing it.
Yes, be aware that certain foods, such as applesauce, cranberries, pearl barley, oatmeal or other cereals, split peas, noodles, macaroni, rhubarb, or spaghetti can foam, froth, and sputter, and clog the pressure release device (steam vent). When preparing these types of food the Cooking Pot should not be more than ½ full.
Why does my pressure cooker take longer to cook than my recipe stated? *Please note, a general guideline for pressure-cooking frozen meat and poultry from a frozen state is to add 50% more cooking time than recipe recommends.
Can I cook frozen food in my pressure cooker? Frozen meat and poultry can be cooked from frozen state while using Pressure Cooking modes to prepare foods; however, do not use frozen meat or poultry in Slow Cook Mode.
Please note, a general guideline for pressure-cooking frozen meat and poultry from a frozen state is to add 50% more cooking time than recipe recommends. Quick Release: Allows the cooker to cool down quickly by letting the steam out of the cooker until the float valve drops.
This may take 10 to 30 minutes, or even longer, depending on the amount of food in the cooker. Once the cooking process is completed, turn OFF the Keep Warm mode if it is ON.
Why is there steam coming out of the float valve during the start up procedure? As the unit preheats you should see steam come out of the float valve.
The temperature rise during preheat causes pressure to build within the Cooking Pot, which in turn causes the float valve to rise. • Make sure Gasket is inserted properly in the underside of Lid.
Move Steam Release Valve to OPEN position, close Lid and then move Valve to CLOSED position. • Valves or Gasket may need to be cleaned to remove debris.
See “Releasing Steam” instructions in “Meet Your Pressure Cooker.” If spattering occurs, wear an oven mitt to protect hand and release pressure in short bursts or allow to natural release.
*Please note, a general guideline for pressure-cooking frozen meat and poultry from a frozen state is to add 50% more cooking time than recipe recommends. Reset cooking mode and adjust for additional time, or set Cooker to BROWN/SAUTÉ and allow food to simmer longer.
• Make sure there is enough liquid to create steam and build pressure. • Make sure the proper pressure and cooking time was selected.

What purpose do the metal clips on each side of the body handle serve? The metal clips serve as a lid holder, and are on each side for left- and right-handed use.
The Keep Warm Setting should only be used after a recipe has been thoroughly cooked. Food must be hot enough to prevent bacterial growth before using Keep Warm Setting.
Helpful Hint: Crocks are vulnerable to thermal shock, which is a condition caused by extreme changes in temperature. Yes, lifting the lid results in major heat loss which can cool the food load.
Removing glass lid allows large amounts of steam to escape and thus the cooking time may need to be extended. He currently makes 6 different size Slow Cookers : 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, & 8 quart models.
Helpful Hint: The bottom of the crock is very rough and can damage the countertop. The lid is intentionally loose in order to let small amounts of steam escape.
Hamilton Beach specifications applicable to all slow cookers and their components (including the earthenware crocks) prohibits the product from containing any measurable amounts of lead. Furthermore, the factories that manufacture the earthenware crocks for Hamilton Beach are certified ceramic production facilities whose ceramic ware is deemed to satisfy FDA heavy metal requirements.
Hamilton Beach takes all reasonable steps to ensure that the earthenware crocks accompanying our slow cookers provide safe and satisfactory service to our consumers. The sides of the slow cooker’s base get very warm because the heating elements are located here.
Like current Slow Cooker Industry practices, the quart size of our Slow Cooker Crocks are determined by measuring the total capacity to the overflow line. It is normal for condensation to accumulate on both glass and plastic lids.
Is it safe to put my hot cooking vessel pot in the carrying case? The carrying case was made for safely handling a hot cooking vessel.
However, do not place the cooking vessel pot in the carrying case and then re-plug. Our slow cookers will boil on the low setting, but only near the conclusion of cooking time (last hour).
When a slow process is used to cook meat, the temperature of the contents should be brought up to 125° F within 3 hours and rise quickly to 165°. The slow cooker must maintain a certain temperature in order to kill bacteria.
What temperature does my slow cooker need to be at when cooking meats? As per USDA guidelines, meats need to be kept above 140° F to avoid dangers of food poisoning.
Am I supposed to have the 'One Step Prep Slow Cooker Recipe Book' packed with my unit? This cookbook is supposed to be packed only with the 6.5 quart oval slow cookers.
The slow cooker does not work like an oven, as it slowly rises in temperature to cook over a longer period of time. The temperatures for each setting are High: 200-225 °F Low: 180-200 °F Keep Warm: 165 °F.
How long can food be kept on the “keep warm” setting of a slow cooker? The keep warm setting can be used for up to 2 hours for some foods.
What causes the recipe for Cheddar Broccoli Soup to curdle and appear to be overcooked? Using fresh or cooked broccoli will cause the soup to appear curdled.
Lead and cadmium are naturally occurring elements in the earth. Hub cooking vessels are porcelain enamel coated to create a barrier between food and earthenware.
The porcelain enamel coated cooking vessels are evaluated using ATM extraction test procedures with detection limits of 0.1 UG/ml for lead and 0.01ug/ml for cadmium. In Hub cooking vessels, the amount of lead or cadmium present in the extract ant is below the test's limits of detection.
Additionally, the factories that manufacture Hub cooking vessels are certified ceramic production facilities whose ceramic ware is deemed to satisfy FDA heavy metal requirements in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding between the United States and China. Hub takes all reasonable steps to ensure that our cook vessels provide safe and satisfactory service to our consumers.
Are the heating elements only at the bottom of the cooker or do they wrap around and up the sides? There are two heaters that wrap around the sides (typically, one is used for Keep Warm, one is used for Low & both are used on High).
