A few months ago the lid just snapped off my Crockpot. Since then, I have had to wrestle my salad tongs away from the 2 year old every time I need the scalding hot lid to go on and off. It was driving me nuts. Then of course, Pinterest came to the rescue. But of course, I kept forgetting to grab a knob when I was at Hobby Lobby. Finally the other day I remembered… and fixed the lid on my Crockpot!
It was a VERY easy fix:
- I picked a ceramic knob instead of plastic. No one wants melted knob in their food.
- Then I made my husband remove the old screw/knob. We couldn’t find the right size screw driver, so we just used a hack saw and sawed it off. I thought it would take all night, but it was aluminum so it took 3 seconds.
- Then we screwed the new knob on. Then I made him use the hack saw again to saw the extra length off the knob. Not necessary, but it made me feel better.
And that was it.
