# Converting Cooking Time from Slow Cooker to Oven

Does anyone know if there is a formula to convert slow cooker cooking times to those for the oven? For example, if a recipe calls for 8 hours in the slow cooker, how long and at what temperature would I cook it in the oven? Thanks.

I actually just came across this in an old cookbook today.

If the recipe calls for: Cook on Low: Cook on High:

15-30 minutes 4-6 hours 1 1/2-2 hours

35-45 minutes 6-10 hours 3-4 hours

50min-3 hours 8-18 hours 4-6 hours

It didn't say at what temperature in the oven, but I would assume that 350 would work. That seems to be the temperature for most things. Hope that helps.

I googled "converting slow cooker time to oven time", and on eHow's website found that you divide the low slow cooker time by 4 to get oven time, and you divide the high slow cooker time by 2 to get oven time. The oven should be set at 325 degrees. Ex: 8 hrs low =2 hrs oven

2 hrs high = 1 hr oven
