    Does your crockpot spit water?

    Hello All!

    I bought my crockpot in June and have used it probably 6-8 times. It is a chrome 5 quart Rival that I got at Target. When my food is cooking hot water spits and splatters around the lid. It happens on high and low. When I cooked stew last week, I found that the water had gone between the ceramic liner into the plug in part. There was a sizable burnt mark.

    Is this normal?

    Thanks for your help!

    I have a 5 quart Rival and its never done that. I'd return it if you can. I don't think its safe if it was burning the crock.

    Thanks, Kristen for your help.

    The burn mark clued me in that something is wrong. For some reason the hot spitfire water didn't really worry me icon_redface.gif

    My new crockpot does spit a bit around the lid, yes - the lids for the newer ones are lighter than the all-glass older ones, so that might be part of it.

    But I'd definitely take yours back!

    You might also want to check to see if your crockpot is one of the models that's been recalled.

    Thanks Julesong,

    I saw that recall notice and did call and ask. Mine is not one of those on recall. I guess mine is a dud.

    I will call Rival tomorrow. I don't think Target will take it back because they have a 90 day return policy.

    I've got 4 different crock-pots right now, have had 4 in addition to these in the last 20 years. They have all 'spit water' at some point. Depends on how much water there is, how full it is and how high the temp is. Usually I turn it down and move them away from an upper cupboard. The scorch marks inside might be from the liquid burning. It isn't typically isn't plain water when it's spitting. I carefully clean the cool crock with a damp cloth and continue using them. Haven't ever had a problem. I usually end up breaking the liner or lid and have to replace them.

    It will spit water when it reached a certain temperature. When water star to spit, tilt yr cover a little bit.

    Kiko,
    I have the same one and mine cooks on such a high heat that everything burns in it. Unfort. I don't have my receipt/box. I bought it at Linens and Things. Does anyone think I have a chance to return it? I hate problematic returns! Luckily, I still have my old crock pot.
