  • Always use nonstick utensils in the cooking pot. Metal utensils may damage the non-stick coating.

  • 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.

I have had a ninja slow cooker for over a year. I use it every week and love it. I would like to buy another for my son but am unable to find one. It’s a fantastic cooker.

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.
