Generally, they are all supposed to be good. It all depends on how we use them. You have undoubtedly been careful with your crock pot to have had it serve you for 30 years! Unfortunately, not all consumers are as careful as you.

Yes, there are instance when a particular line or batch may be faulty due to some manufacturing defects, but these show up immediately, and can always be replaced under warranty.

Don't go by complaints, etc you see on the net. These are the exceptions rather than the rule. That is the nature of ALL electronic/electrical goods - they are bound to fail at some time or the other. (That why we have sites like Fixya!) :) The complaints that you see are exactly that - complaints from a few people who either happened to get a defective product, or haven't used it carefully. The majority, however, are happy with their products :)

Hope that helped!

My son dropped the crockpot, and the crock broke. I was wanting to see if you sold the inside crock as a replacement part instead of having to buy a brand new crock pot?


Howdy, I was unable to locate a suitable replacement crock for your cooker. I did, however encounter many, many complaints about this unit. I have included an average example that contains some contact info for the manufacturer:

Crockpoy insert


no parts from rival . if there was the crock and lid are where all the costs are . the main unit costs nothing to make ....... so you would pay nearly as much to buy the crock as a hole unit and with shipping it would end up costing you more than a new one at wall-mart ...... add to that the side handle problem and people getting burned when thay just snap off with no warning trust in this , you need and want a new crock pot and try to not make it a rival , there just not any good right now ! . good luck

Cover for rival crock pot chipped and unusable


Try this website, they seem to have a good selection of replacement parts that are pretty cheap.

The size crock pot you have is the most common I think. if you aren't sure which lid to buy, email them and ask.

Hope this helps!

Outside of Crock Pot Extremely Hot....Is This Normal?


This is not normal. Thermal switch is not functioning correctly. Wiring inside not easy to replace. Crock pots cause a lot of home fires. Cheaper to simply buy a new one.
