Question about Rival 3060 6-Quart

Water comes out

My new crock pot shoots hot water out the side of the lid when I use it. I have used it twice and this has happened both times. Instead of the steamy water going back into the pot, it collects on the rim that the lid sits on and then starts shooting all over my counter. It has been doing this for the last 2 hour today. I have used a smaller crock pot for years and this has never happened. Does anyone know how to fix this, or did I just get a defective one?

Re: water comes out

I would suggust that you take your crock pot to your nearest service center. To see if they can correct the problem with your crock pot.

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

Why doesn't my cover fit tightly? 5.5 Qt Rival Crock Pot - lid does not fit tightly and hot water is bubbling and spitting out of the crock pot making a mess and an unsafe! Is this a...

There's nothing you need to do differently except place the cooker where a little splashing won't hurt anything. This is typical of all crock pots. The cover fits loosely because it must allow steam to escape. When water turns to steam, it expands. If not allowed to escape, the steam pressure would explode the vessel. The simplest and cheapest way to let the steam escape is to let the lid lift freely. Some of the steam re-condenses into water as it escapes, and then it sputters and splashes as more steam comes out. They could make a more complex system to control the mess, but then a crock pot would be bigger, more expensive, and harder to wash. I know this might not be the answer you hoped for, but it's a truthful answer to your question so I hope you'll rate it accordingly.

31/2 Quart older model crock pot

I just recently got a crock Pot # 3100 in the almond color that someone had left at work many years ago and never picked up. They were going to throw it out. All 3 of the little plastic feet were broken off. I went to a local thrift store and found the same crock pot without the stoneware liner. The case was in perfect shape and still had all 3 plastic feet attached. I paid $2.00 for it and just recycled the old one that I had. I see these at thrift stores pretty frequently and have even seen the lids (glass and plastic) by themselves. If you are looking for replacement parts, Rival does not carry many parts for these older Crock Pots and your local thrift store is an excellent source.

Hamilton beach 6qt electric crock pot about 4 years old

Call Hamilton Beach. This crock pot was recalled because of threat of severe burn. My handle broke and I dropped my lid. When I called to buy a new lid, I was told of the recall. They will send you an envelope. You then send back the end of the cord. I got a whole new cooker, crock and lid in the mail. : )

Rival crock pot question

Most of the reviews for this product state that the lid is a bad fit. It is as though they had leftover lids from another model and just used them in this one. A replacement lid will be the same unless you have one custom made...but for that price you'd just get a new crock pot. You will lose a lot of moisture and some foods will be a little dried out after slow cooking all day and losing steam. You can either cover the cracks as best you can when you set it to cook, or return it and buy a better model. You'll find this problem on Rival's 6 quart crock pot as well. Read the reviews before you make your next purchase.
