Cooking Tips for Slow Cooking Mode - Multi-Cooker

Slow Cooking Mode on KitchenAid Multi-Cooker

  • As a general rule for using your favorite recipes in the Multi-Cooker, increase the amounts of herbs and seasonings to offset the effect of longer cooking times.
  • Do not use frozen, uncooked meat in the Multi-Cooker. Always thaw meats before slow cooking. The size you cut food into can affect its taste and texture. To assure uniformity of cooking, cut vegetables of similar density, such as potatoes, carrots, and parsnips, into similar-sized pieces. In general, dense vegetables should be slightly smaller than more tender vegetables.
  • Cutting meats into large pieces allows longer cooking times and avoids overcooking.
  • Some foods are not suited for extended cooking. Pasta, seafood, milk, cream, or sour cream should be added 2 hours before serving.
  • Add garnishes, fresh herbs, and quick-cooking vegetables toward the end of the cooking cycle. For example, you can add peas, corn, and freshly sliced squash in the last 10 to 20 minutes.
