I have this slow cooker that I use quite frequently, sometimes 2-3 times a week. It’s getting quite old but works just fine; something my mom gave me many years ago. It’s not exactly a crockpot but I have certain things I really prefer to cook in it.
It looks like this:

I used it last night for the 2nd time this week; only NOW it looks like this:

Well, the lid looks like this anyway!

And that would be me that you heard crying loudly about it! It was probably one of my favorite kitchen appliances and I don’t think I can find another one like it. Plus, I need to make really sure all the glass is gone before this weekend when there might be a baby crawling around on my floors! I ruined a pan a few weeks ago and at the rate I’m going, I might end up doing major damage to my kitchen before the summer is over!

Won’t you pick the pieces up
‘Cause it feels just like I’m walking on broken glass

(that song seems like it’s on my xm radio every time I get in the car!)

    Hey….look up the name of the crock pot and go their company and see if you can order a new lid….that way you wont have to get rid of the crock pot your mom gave you. It’s worth a shot. I’m sorry this happened…I hate it when I break glass on the floor too. A friend of mine brought me some rum and vodka back from Mexico last week…it is cheaper there. And as she got out of her van the vodka slipped through her hands and blue glass all over my drive way….where Miller plays alot….you should have seen us trying clean it up and at 9am we smelled like we had been at a bar all night…lol!

    OH! I am so sorry. When I clicked through to the longer post and saw that picture I let out an OH! that would have had people running in here … if anyone was home but me.

    Do a google and see if you can find another. That is worth replacing.

    Did I tell you I read Plain Truth and LOVED it? So good. I have never read Picoult before this and now I can’t wait to read more.

    Gail – That looks like a West Bend slow cooker. Look on their website here:


    There’s one that looks similar.

    Oh no, did you drop it? I can’t believe I haven’t dropped mine yet. I am very careful with it because of the glass lid, and that Dodie gave it to me. I am horribly clumsy, you know. But, it wasn’t me that dropped a lid last night. Tim was fixing me some soup and dropped a glass lid on the floor, and the metal rim bent, but the glass didnt’ break or shatter. I was surprised. Anyway, that looks like a bugger to clean up, but definitely get it all up before K and S get there.

    I looked on Amazon and they have them – order you one! I know I use mine a lot.

    Oh NO Gail, I would be crying too. HOpe you can get a replacement lid for it!

    Oh no! I am so sorry that happened. My hubby would say that it looks like I have been in your kitchen!

    It looks like you may have a few leads as far as replacing the lid and/or slow cooker. I hope you are able to!

    Rats! Sorry that happened. I had one exactly like it, even white except that mine had little blue flowers near the name. Oh, what was it? A Rival? Well, you still have the part that has the name, right? Ummm, I just gave mine away a couple of weeks ago after buying a larger one. Wouldn’t you know? But yours and mine had that big glass, high-standing lid which enabled us to see how the cooking was coming without lifting the top. That glass sure was heavy, though. Hope you manage to get it all cleaned off the floor and find a replacement lid.

    I did something very similar a couple of months ago when I dropped my favorite votive holder on the kitchen floor. To make matters worse, it had been in the freezer (makes it easier to pop out the remains of the candle) and the frozen glass shattered into so many pieces, some of them scattering out into the rest apartment. Plus I was in the kitchen barefoot & the broken glass was between me & the doorway to my kitchen. I still don’t know how I didn’t cut myself and I am still sad about that votive holder.
