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.

SOURCE: cracked ceramic pot

Hi,

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..

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.

Cracks in slow cookers. what causes that and how can it be fixed?


Cracks caused normally in slow cookers is normally caused from the unit being real hot, and then put under facet cold water. When the unit is very hot, and then is put under cold water before it has cooled down on its on to a warm temperature the dramatic change of hot to cold, cracks it. When its hot, its expanded, and then when it goes that fast to cold, it retracts to fast and causing cracks over a period of time, like stress cracks on air planes, when they go up they expand with cabin pressure, and when they come down to land they retract, over a period of time they get worn and cracks develop , same as a crock pot, except yours is with heat, the planes are with air pressure.You can't really fix the cracks. Well, you could have a shop fix them. but the cost would be way more than the crock pot. The only way you can help this from happening in the future, is after using it,before you wash it out let the crock pot cool down on its own for a while. Thanks Mike

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!

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!

The crock insert of the KSC700 keeps cracking. The second insert I received cracked in the first 2 minutes of its use. I love the cooker but I don't want it if the crockery cracks every time.


I would suggest calling Kitchenaid Customer Service. This may be an indication that the heating element is simply getting too hot, causing the ceramic insert to fracture.

I would suggest calling Kitchenaid Customer Service. They may replace the entire appliance for you under the 1 Year manufacturer's warranty.

Without thinking I put frozen bratwurst into my Crockpot and turned it on high. Now there is a hairline crack in the ceramic insert. Can I safely repair this before the crock falls apart? What woold be...


I would suggest that by adding frozen goods to an ambient pot and the heater has kicked in causing a crack in the ceramic pot - this is unrepairable as the damage done is deep into the pot.
A similar problem is putting hot water onto a frozen windscreen - it will crack.
The damage is caused by applying alternate extremes of tempatrature to a solid.
You could glue it, but it may well leak later in use, or may not be entirely stable in the wash. You might find it could separate when you are cleaning it.

Sorry, but I hope this helps.
