Re: My lid exploded and shattered all over my kitchen.
There is a recall but only on the base, they will only replace the base not the lid. here is a link where you can purchase a new lid, however if since there is a recall I would send in the base to get a new one while your waiting for the new lid. good luck!

Stop using it. My shattered and actually kin of exploded. Get a new crock. Believe or not, go to your local Goodwill Store! They have tons of crocks and the lids and the cookers separate frm each other that have been donated becase one of the pieces was broken and they donated the rest of the pieces. Lids and crocks typically range from $1.99 to $5.99 and you benefit your community at the same time.
ince replacing the lid and knob will cost several dollars plus postage I recommend purchasing a new one. That way you have new electronics and a warranty which will assure that you have a cooker for at least a year.
Here's a link to Euro-Pro's site: http://www.euro-pro.com/europro/default.aspx
There's a search box for finding parts. I didn't find the model you listed, but there is a KC276T. The glass lid for that one is $12.99. Take a close look at your model number and give it a shot. There's a page you can get to from the home page to contact customer service. Maybe you can tell them what happened and they'll be nice and give you a replacement?
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
