Slow Cooker Tips

  1. Do not leave cooked food in the stoneware crock for storage in the refrigerator. It can take up to 24 hours to cool this quantity of food to a safe temperature. Instead, divide it into small, shallow (no more than 3” deep) containers. Allow to cool to 65 degrees Fahrenheit before placing in the refrigerator.
  2. Foods that do not freeze well include: yogurt, sour cream, milk, large pieces of potato, sauces thickened with flour or constarch, and most natural cheeses including cheddar, mozzarella, colby and swiss.
  3. A white haze will sometimes remain on the interior of stoneware, even after thoroughly cleaning it. This is just residue left from cooking and is more visible on black stoneware. To remove, make a paste of dish liquid and baking soda. Use this to scrub clean, then rinse well.
