Official Slow cooker parts

A slow cooker functions by cooking food over an extended period using moist heat. This small kitchen appliance is great for making soups, stews and other warm meals. It works by heating up the bottom and the sides of the cooking vessel, making sure that the food is thoroughly heated. The heat is then easily controlled by a knob, allowing you to choose between a high or low temperature. While this appliance is typically only made up of five main parts, there are still times it may require repair or replacement of components.
