Question about Rival 38601 Smart Pot 6-Quart

1 Answer

Ceramic pot loosing luster

The ceramic bowl part of the crock itself is loosing the luster surface about two inches high, most of the way around the inside of the bowl.

As for cleaning, both hand wash and dishwasher methods have been used in the past, neither seems to be destroying the surface.

From past crocks (also Rival brand), this did not seem to be an issue.

Is this still a safe appliance??

Do I add water between ceramic bowl & metal.

Never!!! You should have an Owner's Manual for this product, be sure to read it carefully. At any rate, you should "never' add anything to the metal part of your slow cooker it is designed only for ingrediants to be put in the ceramic bowl.

Our cermaic pot of our crock pot cracked when using it today is this a common problem its only a year old and has been used two times...

No this is not a common problem.
The ceramic bowl should last for years if handled correctly.
It may have had an unseen stress crack causing the premature failure.

Avoid putting cold liquid or items into the hot ceramic bowl/pot. This will cause the bowl/pot to crack and can be very unsafe when it pops. The reverse is also true, avoid putting hot liquid or items into the cold ceramic bowl/pot.

It is the sudden changes in temperature that can cause cracks to form.

Hope this helps!

There is no inherent problem with the Kitchenaid ceramic inserts. As far as a replacement ceramic insert, I would suggest calling Kitchenaid Customer Service. They may be able to provide a new insert at no cost if the unit is still within the 1 Year warranty.

Their toll-free phone number is 1-800-541-6390.
