Excess condensation that causes the lid to 'float'

Is there any way to correct the problem I have with excess condensation collecting on the rim of this crockpot? It causes the lid to 'float' on the water and it makes some noise. I either have to 'wick' off the water or lift the lid to allow the water to fall back into the crockpost

    I also had this problem. I actually had a heavier glass lid from a pots & pans set that fits, and when I used it, the problem stopped.

I use a small bungy cord to hold the lid down securely. Hook on it on one handle wrap it around the lid knob and attach to the other handle. This is also how I transport the Crock pot.
Good luck.

Where can I find a floating valve gasket that's in the lid.


If you can identify the manufacturer/distributor, check with a local appliance parts supplier. You also can contact the manufacturer/distributor directly to determine availability and source.

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.

Presssure valve to be turned off or on when using pressure cooker


pressure cooker cooks by the pressure inside the cooker.
So you need to put those on when cooking.
The excess pressure will automatically drain off.

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.
