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
