Well, that all depends on how dense a sloppy joe mixture you make. If you add pounds and pounds of ground beef to the mix and just the sloppy joe sauce, then it would be many pounds.

But as for a good rule of thumb, "A pints a pound the world around" In other words, if you're making sloppy joes from the pre-mixed cans, just weigh one 16 oz (1 pint) can and that's 1/2 quart.

If you're making it yourself, we're back to the whole density of your chosen ingredents.

However, I've done a little research for you and based on the density of cooked beef and converting the weight of that cooked beef into the 5 quart volume of your crockpot, I've come up with the following info for you.

Cooked Beef has a density 129.52 Ounces per Gallon (a technical measurement)

So based on that data (not including your sloppy joe seasoning/sauce and other add-ins), you should get approximately 10.12 Pounds of Sloppy Joe Mixture to fit into your 5 Quart Crockpot.

I would guess that the amount would be just slightly less, since you might want a little room for putting on the lid, etc., but you should get around 10 Pounds to fit easily in your 5 quart crockpot.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Crock brand replacement parts


If its the lid or removable pot by a very cheap 6 Quart or 6 to litre Slow cooker / Crock pot of the same shape and the removable pot and lid should fit.

A CRACKED LID FOR THE RIVAL 3100/2 CROCK POT


I have another pot with a lid and the lid 'fits' my crockpot; my glass crock pot just broke and my heart broke along with it! The cooking pot's lid worked for the soup I made last week but you can't see into the pot; I like that about the crock pot. Try another lid, or you can try to buy a new/different one, like I'm trying to do! :)

Searching for pasta sauce recipe


Barbara....I understand -- I panicked to day when I couldn't find my CROCK-POT recipe book for my Chicken Cacciatore recipe. I think I have that same recipe book -- my CROCK-POT is avocado green. Tthere are two recipes for spaghetti, but I'm assuming that you want the "Italian Meat Sauce" recipe. If not, let me know and I'll send the other one.

Crock Pot Italian Meat Sauce

1 cup chopped onions
1 – 1 ½ pounds ground chuck, browned
2 cloves garlic
1 large can tomatoes (28 oz)
1 6-oz can tomato paste
2 stalks celery with tops, chopped
2 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons dried oregano
¼ teaspoon dried thyme
1 bay leaf
Put all ingredients in CROCK-POT. Stir thoroughly. Cover and cook on Low for 10 to 12 hours. (High: 3 to 5 hours).

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.
