Cook's Essentials Pressure Cooker with Slow Cook Function

Alisonlou | Jan 10, 2012 09:35 PM

My mother in law just gave me her old 4 quart pressure cooker she purchased via QVC when she decided to upgrade to the 5 quart version. I noticed it has a slow cook function and I was interested in experimenting. I've never used a crock pot or slow cooker before, but I understand they have a high or low temp setting setting (right?).
Here's the problem with the machine I own: although it has a slow cook setting it doesn't give any indication what temperature it cooks at (high or low). The instruction booklet that came with the cooker is lacking and ignores the slow cook function completely.
Does anyone know anything about this machine? I am open to experimentation, but I would hate to ruin a meal or waste four quarts of food in the process of figuring out the temperature setting. Actually I know so little about slow cookers that I'm not sure I'd know how to know!

Help! And Thanks!
