Re: Salton Yogurt Maker GM5 plastic lid replacement
I found that there are tupperware lids that fit perfectly. When asking for replacement parts from tupperware you need the mold number off of the part. The lid I found that matched is mold #297. When I called Tupperware they told me that that's no longer being produced but mold #4922 is a functional replacement. I'm in the process of ordering a few to see if the new lids fit as well (you can't buy directly from Tupperware making this a more protracted process).

When our lid broke (the plastic knob part broke from the rest of the plastic lid when my wife dropped it), I was able to glue it back on using Devcon "Weld it" adhesive. (Available at any hardware). So far it's held for over six years of regular use.
Otherwise you can always find use a glass replacement lid from Rival. I seen them going for $12 on Ebay (which included shipping). Look for 10-3/8" diameter, 5 quart.
I have another pot with a lid and the lid 'fits' my crockpot; my glass crock pot just broke and my heart broke along with it! The cooking pot's lid worked for the soup I made last week but you can't see into the pot; I like that about the crock pot. Try another lid, or you can try to buy a new/different one, like I'm trying to do! :)
easy fix go down to your hardware store and buy a big wooden knob (like you would put on a cabnet to open it) it will even come with its own screw for .99 ! . you will have to snap off with a plyers and a screwdriver whats left of the old knob from the lid . but this fix works great and looks good too !
For what it's worth, when the handle on my mother-in-law's crockpot broke, I went to Home Depot and bought a cheap wooden drawer knob (about $1 as I recall). I put a plastic washer between the knob and the glass and another under the screw head from the bottom (to prevent cracking the lid), tightened the screw and good as new.
J'aie un crok pot Bravetti de 7 pintes, c'est une petite merveille jusqu'à aujourd'hui car une de mes poignées s'est cassée lors de son utilisation. Je ne l'aie pas cognée, j'aie seulement pris mon crock pot ( qui était en pleine cuisson depuis 4 h00) par les deux poignées pour le changer de place sur mon comptoir de cuisine et crack, la poignée m'est resté dans les mains. Je n'ose pas imaginer ce qui aurait put arriver si il y avait eue un enfant près de moi lors du déplacement de mon crock pot Bravetti 7 pintes en inox. J'aurrais pu brulé quelqu'un pour le reste de sa vie....ATTENTION lors du déplacement de votre crock pot car les poignées ne sont pas solide du tout, je suis vraiment décue car j'adorais utiliser mon crock pot mais à partir de maintenant.....je vais y penser à deux fois avant de m'en procurer un autre Bravetti 7 pintes en inox.
Just called the number (found on the web) for the Wal Mart Model 106661 of this and they are sending me a form to replace the base (with the heating element in it). Also have the same problem with the lid handle. Asked them about getting a new handle and they said I could order an entire new lid. A ceramic cabinet knob with the SS screw and washers sounds like a better solution then buying a new lid. Info date 1/21/08
Take it back to the shop you bought it from with the packaging if you still have it, and the receipt which you will need. If you don't have the receipt anymore try contacting the manufacturer, they will be able to determine if it is still in warranty from its serial number.
It could be vibration inside the dishwasher rather than heat that caused it to break though I would say it happened while cooking when you return it in case they try and make out that is isnt dishwasher proof
