Slow Cooker Tips

• To cook food safely, manufacturers and the USDA recommend filling the slow cooker between half and two-thirds full.

• Brown ground meats, poultry and sausage in a skillet before placing in slow cooker.

• Don’t remove the lid during the cooking process. Each peek adds an additional 15 to 20 minutes of cooking time.

• Dairy products tend to break down in a slow cooker, so only add them during the last 15 minutes of cooking time.
