I have a Monier crock pot which is approx. 30 years old and still working well but the plastic lid has a crack in it. Is it possible to obtain a new lid

Contact Monier, they may have a replacement.
If not take the plastic lid with you and go shopping, look for glass lids on pots and pans that matches the shape of your plastic lid.

I've an old Rowenta yoghurt-round with glass jars- maker and would like instructions for using it, please!

Mix 1 plain yoghurt with 1 liter UHT milk at room temperature. Fill the jars with this mix and cover them. Place the jars in the Yoghurt maker and close it with the cover. Turn the knob to 5 or 7 (it depends on the texture you like in the yoghurt) and you are all set. If you heat up the milk above 45 Celsius, turn the knob to 2 or 3.

Bottom is rusted and when i try to cook something,

Since the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart or Lowe's.

If it is not repaired, the rust will worsen until the cavity is damaged beyond repair.

How to replace a blown bulb

  • check the size of the bulb required before you buy a replacement bulb. Most use a 40 watt appliance bulb. I
  • Confirm that the oven is not on. Allow it to cool to room temperature if it has recently been used.
  • Open the oven door and use a flashlight to light the area where the bulb is located. Do not put weight on the door itself, but go in at an angle or sideways.
  • Find the shield or cover over the bulb, gently pull or twist it off. Some glass covers are surrounded by a wire clip or a ring that is screwed in to the back then Gently remove either the wire clip or ring. Since the cover is most likely glass, be careful then Unscrew the entire glass cover similar to a jar lid in older versions of ovens. repeat process if there is more than one bulb..hope this helps pls do let me know

    I have a Spacesaver Microwave (manufactured 1988) that still seems to work ok, but I noticed on teh back wall under the glass tray the coating has rusted away. Should I continue to use this microwave?


    As long as the oven's metal bottom is sound underneath the rust, there isn't a problem. The cooking chamber walls are so thick and highly conducting that they reflect the microwaves extremely well even when they have a little rust on them. However, if the metal is so rusted that it loses most of its conductivity in the rust sites, you'll get local heating across the rusty patches and eventually leakage of microwaves. If you're really concerned that there may be trouble, run the microwave oven empty for about 20 seconds and then (carefully!) touch the rusty spots. If they aren't hot, then the metal underneath is doing its job just fine.

    Microwave enamel wearing away

    It will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

    Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

    Enamel should work, but appliance paint is better.
