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.

I have a Deni pressure cooker. 1 out of 10 times it works correctly. The last 2 times the top exploded off and spread liquid through the entire kitchen. Thank god nobody was injured. I have went through...


All pressure cookers should have a release valve. Be sure that is clean and allows a free flow of steam when the weight is not on it. Test it with just water in the pot. Heat the water until its just about to boil (with the lid off) then close and lock down the lid. Steam should start to come out of the release valve. If not .. clean it again.

I am cooking a roast and i just need to know how much water to put inside the cooker.


1/4 cup is enough. Roast has a high moisture content and will produce a lot of liquid for gravy! I'd only use more when I am cooking potatoes in the same roaster with the meat, then I would increase to a cup. Cover the roast tightly with foil or a good lid.

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 situtation...help! 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.

Crock pot use


You should keep the lid on as much as possible. You are correct; once you open the lid, the liquid inside can quickly lose temperature at a rate of 10-15 degrees per minute.

Additionally, taking the top off allows steam to escape, which reduces the point of cooking in a slow cooker (cooking in a relatively closed system, with the steam condensing back to water and flowing back into the broth).

It's not doing a whole lot to the flavor (aside from causing the stew to thicken with the loss of water), but it is definitely causing the cooking to take longer than it should.
