General Information

What is SEARious Slow cooking and slow cooking?
Searing meats before cooking adds flavor and appearance. Sear using the built-in stove top before slow cooking – for more delicious meals all in one appliance. Slow cooking is cooking foods at low temperature for a long time in a moist cooking environment. Typical slow cook meals take 8-10 hours on low and 4-6 hours on high.

When would I use one-pot meal cooking and how does it work?
One-pot meal cooking is best used with pasta dishes (no need to drain) as well as layered meals, using protein, a starch and a vegetable all cooked in one meal. One-pot meal cooking is done by placing everything on the bottom of the pot and cooking on the OVEN setting. No need to pre-heat or drain.

When would I use slow cooking and how does it work?
You can use slow cooking for all types of meals. This method of cooking is perfect for meats that are typically less expensive cuts and take many hours to tenderize. The long and low temperature leaves the meat tender and juicy. For other types of foods, slow cooking allows you to cook hands-free, over a longer period of time. The Ninja system includes Slow Cook HIGH, LOW and Auto Warm settings. Slow cook HIGH cooks in half the time it takes to cook on slow cook LOW. This flexibility offers two options that work best with your schedule. Use LOW for all-day “set it and forget it” cooking. Use HIGH for half day or weekend cooking. Once the cooking cycle is complete, the unit will automatically switch to AUTO WARM, which will run for 12 hours.

Using the Multi-Cooker

Can I leave my house with the unit plugged in and cooking?
It is perfectly safe to leave the Ninja plugged in ONLY for slow cooker or buffet settings. The other forms of cooking are engaged cooking and you must be present. Think of these as if it is your home stove or oven.

Can you take the lid off when slow cooking?

best ever

I bought this because it’s all I could find one night in an emergency, but I LOVE it!!! I cook more now than in several years and even bought a second one for our camper.

Ninja 3-1

Absolutely love it! We chose this on a whim while registering for our wedding. So glad we did. The couple that bought it for us ended up getting their own 3-1. My only issue would be the cord length, it’s really not very long. I have to use a power strip in order to not have to rearrange the kitchen. Either way we love it! Can’t wait to try more recipes!

Mrs KK

I love the Searious cooker. I bought one for myself and my daughter we both use it all the time. I love theocracy that you can brown your meat and your onions etc right in the pot. We even use it as a steamer. I haven’t tried baking in it yet but it does everything else really well I’m sure that feature is great as well. I want to buy one for my niece but can’t seem to find it anywhere anymore.

No Reviews?

I can’t believe that I am the first to write a review. I’ve used this cooker for the past year and it is probably the best thing I have ever bought for my kitchen. Use it all the time for so many different recipes. I will definitely buy it for my two daughter-in-laws as Christmas gifts.

At the end of the power cord, there will be a 4-digit number engraved on the outside of one of the metal prongs. This is the date code of your unit, which tells you the date your unit was produced.
