Should the lid be a tight fit or loose

Most crock pots are made of porous ceramic and is relatively brittle. It is glazed on all sides (except the bottom usually), to make it hold liquids without absorption. The lids, usually glass or thermoplastic, sit of top, but do not usually fit tightly as this could crack the crock. Also, it is not a pressure cooker, so you want excess steam to vent. The lid just keeps the heat inside and allows condensation to drip back into the crock, reducing the speed at which the fluids cook off, thus the term slow cooker.

I have the SCVP601R-L red crock pot. My ceramic pot is starting to look like it is cracking on the bottom. It is not leaking, I am just worried. I would like to get a relacement liner and it doesn't...

Check with your local hardware store, maybe they have some sort of scellent or glue for ceramic, just make sure it can stand high temperatures, if the crack is in the inside of the pot make also sure the product won't contaminate the food with nasty chemicals. Sorry that is the only thing I can think of besides buying a new crock...

good luck!

Cracked ceramic pot


Not sure what you are looking for here... the pot cannot be repaired...

It looks as though the crocks breaking is a very common problem...

This might be very interesting to you....from what I can see you can get a replacement crock but they break easily also ans it will cost you about 1/2 the price of a new cooker..

Our cermaic pot of our crock pot cracked when using it today is this a common problem its only a year old and has been used two times...

No this is not a common problem.
The ceramic bowl should last for years if handled correctly.
It may have had an unseen stress crack causing the premature failure.

Avoid putting cold liquid or items into the hot ceramic bowl/pot. This will cause the bowl/pot to crack and can be very unsafe when it pops. The reverse is also true, avoid putting hot liquid or items into the cold ceramic bowl/pot.

It is the sudden changes in temperature that can cause cracks to form.

Hope this helps!

Cracked ceramic Kitchenaid crock pot liner

There is no inherent problem with the Kitchenaid ceramic inserts. As far as a replacement ceramic insert, I would suggest calling Kitchenaid Customer Service. They may be able to provide a new insert at no cost if the unit is still within the 1 Year warranty.

Their toll-free phone number is 1-800-541-6390.
