    Check you pot lids, you might have one that will fit on it. Probably not snuggly but enough to keep the heat in. Foil might work also.

    Good idea Kim.

    I remember My son broke one of mine and that's what I did, until I came across the lid that I needed. I was thrift shopping one day and found the lid to the same crockpot. What kind of luck was that.... It was a good thing that it was the round crock pot.

    Look through your cooking pot lids and you just might find a lid you have to fit the crockpot. That is what I did when I broke my lid.

    Ask on Freecycle. Someone may have a Crockpot that is not heating right, or broken in another way. (I ran across one a few weeks ago that the owners had cut the cord to send to the manufacturer) You might be able to find one that way.

    Mine got broke at a church dinner. The gal who broke it found a replacement for me on the net. In the meantime, foil should work if you don't have another lid.
    I am SO looking forward to "empty-nest syndrome"!

    Default Re: crockpot lid help


    My lid broke years ago, and I use a lid from one of the other pots I have, of course it is not the perfect fit, it sits inside the ledge where the original lid rested, but it sealed which is what you need to remember. If you still have the broken lid, you can measure the diameter, or measure the inside diameter of the crock and see what you have, if not you can do what other writers have stated go a thrift shop or store with your measurement and tape measure. Good Luck
