A tragedy struck on Tuesday morning when I was making French Dip Subs. It’s a favorite among our kids and I made homemade sub rolls the day before. Yep, my favorite crock pot of all time cracked. As I was pouring in the liquid ingredients, it started flowing from the bottom of my crock pot. Then I realized it was cracked all the way through and not salvageable. Ugh, I really like this crock pot and it was an inexpensive one at Dillards. After posting my sad saga on facebook, I got the bright idea of looking for another liner at Goodwill or a thrift shop. I’m hoping to find one that will fit.
Tuesday evening I forgot the burner unit and lid while I was out near Goodwill and I took a chance. I saw a compatible 6 quart black liner for $2.00. I hoped it fit. Unfortunately, it’s about 2 inches shy of fitting down inside. Such a bummer, but I’m still searching. I’ve tried to find the website for this Spring brand endorsed by Andrew Weil, M.D., but I haven’t had found the exact model I have. Perhaps they no longer make this one since I’ve had it for about five years.
One reader suggested contacting the company, but I still can’t find the company. As I’m googling, I’m still Goodwilling until I can replace this awesome set up that has cooked countless meals for us.
This so called slow cooker cooks really fast about half the time of normal crock pots. I noticed the cracked portion looked burnt toward the bottom. Perhaps that’s why it cracked? I’m not sure, but I do hope I find one soon because all my crock pot recipes are on hold.
But don’t wait on me, check out all our crock pot recipes on our recipe index and crock until your heart is content I’ll let you know when I’m up and running again.
What would you do in this situation? Has your crock pot liner ever broken?
