Question about Crock Pots & Slow Cookers

1 Answer

Why doesn't my cover fit tightly? 5.5 Qt Rival Crock Pot - lid does not fit tightly and hot water is bubbling and spitting out of the crock pot making a mess and an unsafe situtation...help! Is this a problem with the model? Is there something I need to do on my end? I tried it with little and a lot of liquid and still happens on both high and low...

    This is not common for all crock pots. I have used crock pots for 30 years and this is the first one I have had to put a towel under to catch the condensation coming from the pot. The cover is not large enough nor heavy enough to solve the problem. Other brands that I have used have not had this problem.

There's nothing you need to do differently except place the cooker where a little splashing won't hurt anything. This is typical of all crock pots. The cover fits loosely because it must allow steam to escape. When water turns to steam, it expands. If not allowed to escape, the steam pressure would explode the vessel. The simplest and cheapest way to let the steam escape is to let the lid lift freely. Some of the steam re-condenses into water as it escapes, and then it sputters and splashes as more steam comes out. They could make a more complex system to control the mess, but then a crock pot would be bigger, more expensive, and harder to wash. I know this might not be the answer you hoped for, but it's a truthful answer to your question so I hope you'll rate it accordingly.

Where can I find a plastic Rival crock pot lid? 5 qt. Model number 3355-180


Sad to say, you may be out of luck. This site where I've found lids before shows yours is no longer available. Rival's crock pot parts site is here. They list nothing at all for your model, but you might try contacting them to see if they have any recommended substitute.

Sorry I can't give a more hopeful answer, but thanks for asking here.

I need a lid for a Rival 5 qt. crock pot (oblong)


Our stoneware broke, and so we kept the base and lid hoping to replace it. Unfortunately it is discontinued. For the cost of shipping and a couple of bucks it's yours.

Oval 6 Qt Ceramic Liner Needed for Rival Crock Pot model 3855


If you are still looking I may have what you need. I live in Canada so you would need to pay the shipping which could be high as the liner is heavy. If you are interested feel free to email me.

Replacemnet Liner for Crock Pot.. I want yours


We have a Elite 8 qt. crock pot minus the lid. Maybe between the two of us we can get a working crock pot. We would love to find a lid to fit it, but if not, will be willing to help with the liner.

Handle on crockpot lid broke off.can I replace it at store where purchased?


I have had the same problem. Spoke to rival customer service and they no longer sell replacement lids for model number SCE502. I've read to take the screw from the knob to a hardware store and then find a knob which will fit it.
Someone else suggested that if the knob is mostly intact, ask hardware store for araldite glue
