Ninja® Searious Slow Cooker

Model #: MC501

SEAR and SLOW COOK all in the same appliance!



SEARious Programmable Slow Cooking
The Ninja® SEARious® Slow Cooker allows you to Sear, then slow cook all in one appliance! Searing locks in flavor for more delicious meals! Finish off sauces after slow cooking delicious meats - and do this all in the same pot!

Built-In Stovetop
Use the built-in stovetop to sear meats then slow cook, locking in the flavor. You can also use the stovetop function for re-heating meals!


  • Cooking times may vary based on the selected temperature, the current temperature of the cooking pot and the temperature of the ingredients.

  • Always use nonstick utensils in the cooking pot. Metal utensils may damage the non-stick coating.
  • For even browning, make sure that the food is in an even layer on the bottom of the cooking pot.

  • Cooking time and temperature can be adjusted at any time during the cooking cycle in Slow Cook. Press the Adjustment Buttons “+” or “-” to adjust.

  • Multiple modes may be required to cook recipes. To change modes during cooking cycles, simply turn the Function Dial to select the new desired mode. Once the new mode is selected, begin the programming process.

  • If the cooking pot is removed during the cooking cycle and then placed back into the unit, the cooking process will continue as though it was not interrupted.

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!

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.
