Pros & Cons


Welcome to Multi-Function Cooking!
The first step to creating your meal with the Cook Central is selecting the cooking function.

Slow Cook

Slow cook on your schedule and then "stay warm" for up to 8 hours.

Slow cook on your schedule and then “stay warm” for up to 8 hours.

Slow cooking is perfect for foods that require long, slow simmering, such as soups, stocks, stews, and dried beans. This function is also ideal when cooking tougher and less expensive cuts of meat like shoulder and pot roast. The Slow Cook function has three temperature settings — High, Low, and Simmer. For recipes that need to cook longer, use the Simmer and Low settings. When starting a dish later in the day, select the High setting. A 24-hour timer and automatic Keep Warm mode ensure your food is ready to eat when you are.



Extra-large steaming tray accommodates a lot of vegetables.

Extra-large steaming tray for vegetables.

Steaming is one of the healthiest methods of cooking. No butter or oil is required and fewer nutrients are lost in the steaming process. To steam anything from asparagus to shrimp, insert the included steaming rack and no more than 2 quarts of water or other liquid in the cooking pot and cover with the lid. Once steaming is complete, carefully remove food from the pot with a spoon, fork or tongs and enjoy.




Brown or saute with temperatures upto 400 degrees.

Brown or saute with temperatures up to 400 degrees.

Use the Brown/Sauté function as you would a skillet or sauté pan on the stovetop for a variety of recipes. Prepare a quickly sautéed skillet dish or brown food right in the pot as the first step of your family’s favorite slow cooker recipe. You can use this function to reheat foods as well. Just use Brown/Sauté at 350 degrees F and stir until all ingredients are warmed through.

Once you have chosen the cooking function that best fits your recipe, simply set the desired time and temperature, and then press Start.
