Taking the lid off your slow cooker, even just to give it a quick stir, drastically reduces the heat and extends the cooking time. Only lift the lid if instructed to do so in the recipe.
A slow cooker should never be preheated. Simply put the stoneware container in the slow cooker base, cover and set the desired cooking temperature.
Do not add cold water to slow cooker immediately after use as this could cause it to crack. Either add warm soapy water or let the slow cooker reach room temperature before cleaning.

I added a crushed fresh garlic clove to my hamburger and used milk in lieu of the water. Next time..I would add 1 tsp of salt.used Hunts original 680 can..and also added 1 pint of my own cooked stewed tomatoes that were mashed and frozen. Also added 1 bay leaf and put finely dice onion and celery on top instead of mushrooms and the peppers. I would even add more sauce the next time as I am freezing leftovers and will have to add it when I heat these up. this is very good for people that cant have to much spice..you can always add your own..to your own taste when you are eating..
Made this tonight for dinner, easy & tasty. I used a 700 ml jar of low-fat/low sodium pasta sauce (no 645 ml jars here) and made the meatballs with 500 g of ground turkey and Lower Sodium Stove Top (Chicken). Added a small handful of rolled oats to the meat mix and used only 1/3 cup water. Left out the green pepper and put in extra mushrooms, and added a bit of water to the sauce. Served the meatballs over basmati rice instead of pasta. Got 20 med-large meatballs from the 500 g of ground turkey. Yummy!
I enjoyed this meal but I left out the mushrooms and green peppers (mushrooms because I don't like them and green peppers because I didn't have any). I didn't have extra lean beef so I had to scoop out some grease on the top of my slow cooker. Also, I maybe used too much beef. The meatballs were a bit bland so I think next time I think I'm going to add pepper and follow the directions more closely. I'd also play with the idea of adding green, red, and yellow peppers. I think I'm going to try using 1 to 1 1/2 jars of a more flavourful pasta sauce. I like the suggestion of adding diced tomatoes as well.
