Help/Advice please re slow cooker

Hello everyone!

I've just joined this forum to get advice from other slow cooker users. I'm a bit frantic!!! I just got in from work to the beautiful aromas of my beef joint cooking in my slow cooker - yum! I put it in on low, at 8am this morning.

Here's my problem - after looking at my lovely beef - I realised I hadn't put the beef in the actual ceramic pot (that was still on the draining board ) I'd put it into the actual outer heating element pot........I can't believe I've done this. Talk about a blonde moment!!!

I quickly took out the joint, put it in the ceramic pot and poured the juices in. What damage have i done????? Will my slow cooker be ruined? Will the meat be ok to eat? Also I don't think the outer part is washable either is it?

Gutted and thanks for reading, Helen xx

Jeez. Sounds like something I would do.

I am sure your roast is fine--the inside part is steel, isn't it? Might taste a little metallic, but I think it will be ok.

You can wash the inside of the crockpot--you just need to be careful to keep the outside dry, so no water seeps into the innards. I wouldn't fill it with water to soak it--just tip it up on the side, scrub the inside and rinse.

Then--let it dry for a few days (just to make sure there is not water in the electrical part) and try it out again.

LOL! I still can't believe I've done it My 9yr old son was freaking out at the blood which is why I tried to get it in there pretty quickly.....

Yes, the inside is like a steel. It looked like it will be pretty hard to get clean. Will probably just get a new one. Just hope the beef is ok to eat...it's Tesco finest - 10!!!!!

Thanks for replying...what a numpty I am

We all do something like this at one time or another. I bet the crock pot will be ok if you can scour it clean. If not, at least they are reasonably priced and shouldn't break the bank to get a new one. I hope your meat is good!

This is awesome because I thought I was the only one to have ever done this.. although I noticed immediately and dumped it all into the correct pot. Either way, it makes for a good story! Welcome to DC
