My crockpot cracked!

I was roasting a chicken today in the crockpot and the ceramic insert part cracked in half! I had chicken juice all over the counter before I noticed it....I'm so sad! This is my new crockpot, I've only had it a couple months. Anyone know why this might happen? I don't think I've dropped it or anything lately....

Re: My crockpot cracked!

Wow! So sorry to hear that! Did you go from hot to cold/ cold to hot really fast? I have heard of that happening, but not just all of a sudden cracking. You could also read up online to see if the brand you have has had a recall.

You said that you don't remember dropping it recently, does that mean you have dropped it? If so, it may have just had enough.


At any rate, I love our crockpot too so I feel for ya! I hope some other mamas can chime in too.

Was the chicken frozen and the ceramic? that might have done it...

Nope, it was a raw chicken, and it cracked near the end of cooking. I personally haven't dropped it, but in this house you never know....I'm still missing it, I think I need to go get a new one. I'm in crockpot withdrawal!

What brand was it? I would probably call the company and see what they say. Maybe they will replace it since it is so new? Good luck!

I am sorry mama. I had a previous crockpot do the same thing. It was about 7 mths old and I just bought a new one. Maybe you could call the company and see what they say
