Re: good and bad complaints.
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 :)

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
