What temperature does a slow cooker cook at?

If you have a slow cooker, you have probably wondered what temperature the low and high settings actually are, since few slow cookers actually tell you on the dial or even in the manual. And some are definitely fussy about ensuring food is thoroughly cooked in order to avoid food illnesses.

Slow cookers, and their accompanying recipes generally come with two settings. The low setting is actually 200F. The high setting is 300F. Both of these temperatures are suitable for cooking raw meat when cooked for the length of time the recipe recommends.

Some slow cookers also have a warm setting, this setting should only be used after the main meal has been cooked and you are keeping it warm a short time before dinner is served.
