How To Use Slow Cooking Function / Setting

Applies to

Built in Ovens

Freestanding Cookers

Combi Microwaves


PLEASE NOTE: Not all AEG ovens have a slow cooker function, we recommend only slow cooking in ovens that are able to do so with this function.

A brilliant function for achieving a tender and juicy result, whether it be a beef brisket or a slow cooked vegetable stew, the flavours are infused in the food for an unforgettable meal. The Slow Cooking function is a low temperature function which involves long cooking times. There are two slow cook options which offer options for smaller and larger quantities of food. Perfect for pulled pork or lamb shanks, stews and casseroles. Ideal if you're going out for the day and want to come home to a tasty treat.

Using Food Sensor

This function allows you to prepare lean, tender meat and fish. It is not applicable for: poultry, fatty roast pork, pot roast. 

Food Sensor temperature should not be higher than 65 °C. 

1. Sear the meat for 1 - 2 minutes on each side in a pan over high heat. 

2. Put the meat in the roasting pan or directly on the wire shelf. Put a tray below the wire shelf to collect fat. Always cook without a lid while using this function.

3. Plug your food sensor into the upper right hand corner of the door and insert into food (please refer to your manual for further instruction on using your food sensor)

4. Find and select the function: Slow Cookingin the oven functions menu. You can set the temperature between 80 °C and 150 °C for the first 10 minutes. The default is 90 °C. Set the temperature for Food Sensor.
