crock pot setting- auto shift? : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Somewhere along the line, I "inherited" a Hamilton Beach/ Scovill 4-quart Crock Watcher, which has a removable crock, but no owner's manual. It has 4 settings, high, low, off, and "auto shift". Does anyone know what auto shift is? Sorry in advance if this is a stupid question!! Jack

Jack, I belive your pot is capable of two settings, thus the "shift" - but how ot set, ah there's the rub... Here is the place to go for the info (perhaps)

Jack - my crock-pot isn't Hamilton Beach, but FWIW auto on mine cooks at high for two hours, then down to low 'til you shut it off.

I have the Hamilton Beach 5 qt crock pot with the auto setting...this means you can cook on high for 2 hours and it automatically cuts back to low setting for the remainder of the cooking time.It works grat..this is my 3rd one like it with the auto settings...this is what I have found that works best.
