Oven To Slow Cooker Conversions

For most slow cookers, the low setting is about 200 degrees F. and the high setting is about 300 degrees F.

One hour on high is equal to 2 to 2 1/2 hours on low.

Here are the conversions for regular ovens to slow cookers:

  • 15 to 30 minutes oven = 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours on high in slow cooker or 4-6 hours on low.
  • 35 to 45 minutes oven = 3 hours on high or 6-8 hours on low.
  • 60 minutes to 3 hours oven = 4-5 hours on high or 8-18 hours on low.

Most uncooked meat and vegetable combinations require at least 8 hours on low.
