Electric ones use a conductive heating element in the base that heats the container of food that is set on it. Other types of food warming trays (commercial) use hot water to keep food trays warm. Finally there are warming trays like chafing dishes that use an open flame with a fuel canister like sterno to directly heat the food tray.
I actually have that very same crock pot and my dark green crock and solid glass top are in perfect condition, but the electrical cord is starting to tear and expose the wire. I think it's doing this because the cord isn't underneath the unit and is on the very back. Is there anyway to find a new electrical base?? I LOVE my crock pot, especially because it's the perfect size, nice and big for a pot roast. Does anybody want to sell their electrical base? or I'm wondering if should try and sell my dark green crock and glass lid? Is there anyway to buy another electrical base???
I have a west bend crockery cooker, model 84316. It was given as a gift. My wife has tried to use it 3 times and each time the outside becomes to hot to touch, while the contents of the removable crock gets only luke warm. I also noticed the bottom of the cooker has turned brown from excess heat, looks like a possible fire hazzard. Does anyone have this problem, is there a recall on this product.
I HAD the problem with the handle snapping off the lid of my oval 6qt lid - until I spent 10 minutes and $2 in the cabinet hardware section of Home Depot. Now I have a stylish silver & white handle on my crock pot lid. The bolt and grommet were re-used, several little tiny o-rings were added as spacers, along with a drop of Loc-tite.
