Slow Cooker Assembly

Preparing a KitchenAid Slow Cooker

Before First Use

Before using a slow cooker for the first time, wipe the metal base and cord with a clean, damp cloth. Wash the ceramic pot and glass lid in hot soapy water, then rinse and dry. The ceramic pot and glass lid can also be washed in the dishwasher.

  1. Place the ceramic pot in the metal base. Do not cook anything in the metal base without the ceramic pot in place. Avoid sudden temperature changes, such as adding refrigerated foods into the heated pot. The ceramic pot must be placed in the metal base, and food placed in the ceramic pot for cooking.
  2. For best cooking results, always operate your Slow Cooker with the lid on.
  3. Plug into a grounded three-prong outlet. Slow Cooker is now ready for operation.
