Rival 28651-C 6-Quart Crock Pot

Dear Problem Solvers:

My Rival crock pot boils on all settings. My question is there some way to reduce the temperature settings on this product? By that I mean a place on the product where I could turn a screw, a setting device, or make a wish over it at midnight and the temperatures could be adjusted so that the settings reflect reality or must I accept the reality of the pot and ignore the fact that the pot boils at all settings.

There seems to be an ongoing question about this unit - many of them are reported as attaining high temperatures. There is no way (short of actually replacing the heating element) to alter the temperature of the unit.

Additionally, you state you are in Mexico - are you in Mexico City or somewhere else? You have to remember that "boiling" actually takes place at different temperatures based on air pressure, and at the pressure in the altitude of Mexico City (11 psia) water will boil at a mere 189 degrees, which is not far off of the 185 degree "target" that they are designed at to be sure that the cooker kills bacteria.

    Dear Pot,



    You're welcome - and if you're at 7,500 feet (which would indicate a that does appear to be part of the "issue" with your slow cooker.



    The good news is, this shouldn't harm your foods in any way. The slow cooker is a relatively closed system, so the vast majority of steam generated should condense back on the lid and return to the broth. Just make sure you're careful opening it up to avoid scalding yourself.
