Entertain a crowd at home or take it with you
The 6-quart Simplicity Slow Cooker works well for family dinners, parties or other large gatherings. The 6 quart oval stoneware can easily handle a 6 lb. chicken or 4 lb. roast. If you are on the go the portable design includes easy-grip handles and a Lid Latch strap to keep the lid in place for spill-resistant travel.

Easy Cleanup
The removable stoneware crock and the lid are dishwasher safe. To clean the base, unplug and let cool, and then wipe it down with a damp cloth. Do not immerse the cord, plug or base in any liquid. Some slow cookers have steam vent holes in their lids. Vent holes allow steam to escape and the wattage of the unit has been adjusted to compensate for any heat loss.

Slow Cooking Tips
If you're not familiar with slow cooking, there are a few things you should know about this method of cooking. First, how high you fill the crock (sometimes called the insert pan, stoneware, cookware or vessel) is important. To prevent overcooking, the crock should be filled half-full to no more than one inch from the rim. If cooking soups or stews, leave a 2-inch (5 cm) space between the top of the crock and the food so the recipe can come to a simmer. Secondly, if you lift the lid during cooking, your cooking time will increase due to heat loss. Unless your recipe specifically calls for stirring, resist lifting the lid. Last but not least, if you want to store leftovers after cooking, do NOT place the entire crock in the refrigerator since contents will take too long to cool. Instead, divide leftovers into smaller containers and place in the refrigerator.

Cooking Meat
A slow cooker is great for foods that are not naturally tender, such as meat with a lot of connective tissue. These are the least-expensive cuts but also the most flavorful. Like braising, slow cookers tenderize meat slowly as it cooks. If you choose cuts such as chuck roast, pork butt, short ribs or chicken thighs, you won't be disappointed with the results. If fat is an issue, refrigerate the contents after cooking and skim off the extra fat before serving. Note: you must thaw frozen meat and poultry before adding it to the slow cooker.

Cooking Side Dishes or Dessert
Main courses, soups and "one-pot" meals are not the only things that slow cookers are great for preparing. They are also perfect for making side dishes and dessert, especially when your main oven is full. Check out the recipes found at that were developed and tested by the culinary experts in the Hamilton Beach Test Kitchen.

How to Adapt Recipes
You can convert your favorite recipes to slow cooker recipes if you learn these important differences first:

  • Liquids do not evaporate in a slow cooker. So unless you are cooking rice, pasta, or beans, reduce amount of liquid to 1/2 of the amount called for in your recipe.
  • Fresh vegetables produce the most desirable results. Potatoes, carrots, onions and garlic should be washed and cut in uniform pieces, then placed in the bottom of the crock. Canned and frozen vegetables take less time to cook and can produce overcooked dishes.
  • Ground beef should be browned and drained before slow cooking to remove grease.
  • Tender foods such as pasta, asparagus and snow peas should be added in the last hour of cooking.
  • Dairy products such as cheese, milk, and sour cream should be added in the last half hour of cooking.
  • Seafood such as shrimp, scallops, and fish should be added in the last 15 to 30 minutes of cooking.
