When I put the glass lid on, there seems to be a gap between the bottom and top that heat can escape from? Is this normal?

SOURCE: Need plastic handle on Rival Crockpot lid.

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.

Oval lid, what is the correct fit, should it be a tight fit, or my just sits on top, there is a small space around.


You should have a fit that has a little wiggle room, including a little space around the edge of the lid. When you cook in a slow cooker, you'll make a bit of steam, and it needs room to escape. A super tight lid would likely end up 'burping', and possibly spraying spurts of whatever your sauce is, across your kitchen. Having that small groove there also leaves you a space where a bit of steam can condense and either trickle back into the pot to keep things moist, or just sit there in the gap and not drip all over your counter. Having a little bit of give also means that if you cook and let things cool, the condensing steam won't create a partial vacuum and leave you having to plant a foot on the side of the crock pot to pull the lid off (likely with more spectacular spew-age ready for viral videos).

Cheers!

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.

How do I remove a lid from a pot after it has been sealed by steam


What has likely happened is when the cooker heated up, the air expanded and escaped, when it cooled off, an air tight seal developed and the top acted as a valve and now the pressure is lower inside the cooker than outside. You need to break the vacuum... This may be done by gently prying the top a bit (carefully so as not to break it) or reheat the cooker. Is there liquid still inside? You could either turn it back on or possibly heat the entire cooker.

Can't get the top off of a stainless steel pot. The top got on the bottom and I can't get them apart.


Try heating the pot on the stove - just a slight bit because its empty. The pot and lid probably sealed themselves together becausethey were put away while they were warm, and as they cooled, the air in them shrank, creating a vacuum.

Displays e4 wont work


Removed the 3 screws on the bottom. There is a relay near the circuit board. Kind of looks like an old morse code relay. Just tapped out "E 4" in morse code. Plugged it in and it works fine.

Plastic lid lets steam escape - is this normal? will it effect cooking?


This site sells replacement rival lids. They have plastic and glass ones. I would suggest you measure you old one and order a new one in glass. The added weight of the glass should cure your problems. Thanks Kevin PS if this helped you pls leave feedback. Link is below just cut and past into your browser.
