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 get a replacement lid for my sce500 crock pot?


Hi Claire,

Crock Pots are the best!

What I would do is go on ebay and search for "oval crockpot cover or lid ".

I just looked and there are several very nice oval lids for about $14 plus shipping.

Make sure you measure your crockpot and check the dimensions of the lid because the oval ones were made in different sizes.

You have to search for general terms because not everyone remembers the model number of their crockpot.

Thanks!

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.

My grandmother has a Continental Electric crockpot, Model 33451 and she has never been able to use it, because the lid does not fit correctly. It appears to me that the oval top of the crockpot is not...


Found some on-line reviews here:

http://wize.com/crock-pots-and-slow-cookers/p392718-continental-manufacturing-company-ce33351#

From what I have read about crock pots the lids are not supposed to seal; they are intentionally made to be loose fitting and should settle in to the groove of the pot edge.

Some reference information on slow cookers.

Suggest you give it a try; you might be surprised with the results.

Just bought the 5 Qt electric pressure cooker. Tonight is the first time I'm using it. Got two questions.....is the pressure release valve supposed to be so loose? I'm also seeing steam and condensation...


Your gasket is no good and needs to be repaired. The water is supposed to be pressurized as high heat steam and when pressure is excessive the valve does its thing to lower to acceptable levels.
