I have the CPE 300 and today the lid will not close. Tried everything, but the bowl/pot is sitting above the level of the inner container and will not go down enough to lock into position. Has anyone else have this problem/ has fixed this issue.
Thanks
George

I bought this three weeks ago. I'm a single mum with 2 kids with complex disabilities. I have treated this like a baby. I've never spent so much on an appliance. It's been amazing for me. I'm completely guttered. Can I get a replacement? I've checked the website I can't see spare parts anywhere. I'm sitting here sobbing. Any help would be appreciative!

Hello!
Is this cooker a pressure cooker?
Also, does it have an air-fryer feature?

Cheers,
Ash

It is indeed a pressure cooker, but it does not have an air fryer feature. Personally, I would avoid this cooker - see my review for further detail.

I am concerned about the aluminium pot and whether there are any toxins leaching into the food? I do not as a rule use any aluminium products for cooking.
Is there an alternative ceramic or stainless steel pot available ?
.

Rokko
Rokko  

No, in fact there are no parts available at all. Sunbeam stocks no parts for any of their appliances that come with a "12-month replacement warranty" - you can't even get a replacement rubber sealing gasket.

I'd like to know exactly what the difference is between using the "One-Touch Meal" buttons and setting the pressure manually. I can't find any information on this anywhere!

For instance, pressure cooking 1kg cubed beef can be done in less than 10 minutes on MANUAL PRESSURE (High Pressure).

Or you can do it on the MEAT/STEW setting, which is also High Pressure, but then it takes 60 minutes to cook.

So what is the difference? Is the MEAT/STEW 'High Pressure' actually a lower pressure than the MANUAL PRESSURE 'High Pressure'? Or is it a lower temperature? Or perhaps both?

Dave

No difference

Hi there my Bobber Valve pin gets loose accidentally when I washed the lid. Is this okay? Can I still use the CrockPot? Looks like the washer was knocked off by accident

Rokko
Rokko  

The bobber valve pin is supposed to be loose ALL the time (assuming the unit is switched off and cool). If it's not loose, then some food debris is likely blocking it and you won't be able to pressure-cook.

Hi, just wondering if the spare rings are available yet and where from? I saw an answer from customer care approximately 6 months ago that said they will be available in the new year?

Rokko
Rokko  

Sunbeam carries *no spare parts at all* for their lower priced kitchen appliances like this one. Instead, they come with a 12-month replacement warranty, so if the seal fails within 12 months, you should get a whole new appliance as a warranty replacement. After 12 months... ??

Alternatively, ProductReview Ambassador Reviewer 'Harmo' has reported in his review of this cooker that the seals for the Instant Pot 8qt model (Designed for IP-Duo80 and IP Lux-80 models) do fit this Crock-Pot cooker perfectly. Instant Pot is not a brand that's sold in Australia, so you'll need to source those seals from eBay or similar.

will a Salbree Steamer Basket for 8qt Instant Pot Accessories, Stainless Steel Strainer fit into the Crock Pot CPE300?

Crockpot
Crockpot   DM   

Hello Sandi, I can't say for sure if it will because they might be the same size as each other and won't fit. The CPE300 bowl is a 7.6 Litre bowl and the 8qt Instant pot steamer is about the same size. .

Maybe take the steamer bowl and try on a store display model before purchasing.

Crockpot
Crockpot   DM   

Hi Ged, Thank you for contacting CrockPot. We have a recipe on page 18 of the cook book:
S p l i t Pea and Ham soup
Prep: 15 mins
Cook: 20 mins
10 servings
INGREDIENTS
◊ 3 tbsp butter
◊ 1 brown onion, diced
◊ 2 cloves garlic, chopped
◊ ¼ tsp pepper
◊ 1 bay leaf
◊ 3 cups ham, diced
◊ 3 carrots, diced
◊ 2 stalks celery, diced
◊ 500 g dried green split peas,
sorted, rinsed and drained
◊ 6 cups chicken stock
1. Press BROWN/SAUTÉ setting on the Crock-Pot® Express Crock Multi-Cooker and press
the START/STOP button. Pre heat add the butter, onion, pepper and garlic.
Sauté for 2-3 minutes or until onions are softened, stirring often to prevent
burning. Select the START/STOP function.
2. Add the bay leaf, ham, carrots, celery and split peas, stir. Cover with the chicken
stock and stir again until well blended.
3. Put on the lid and turn it to the locked position, set the steam valve to “Seal”. Select
the MEAT/STEW function, and adjust the time to 15 minutes. Press START/STOP.
Allow to naturally release for 10 minutes. Release any remaining pressure with
the steam valve. Remove the lid, stir and remove the bay leaf. Serve hot.
Kind Regards, CrockPot
