Is a crock pot that is cracked still safe to use?


Answer by  sam72143 (32)

No it would not be safe to use because under heat the crack could spread causing liquid to come in contact with the heating element and electrocute you.


Answer by  jamieellison (1637)

No, it is not because the heat that surrounds the pot needs a smooth, uninterrupted surface on which to distribute. You risk explosion with continued use.

It's really not safe. Changes in temperature could cause it to break at the cracks. Also, bacteria is hard to clean out of the cracks, leading to food poisoning.


Answer by  step (309)

If it has a crack, it has a leak. Anything that leaks out of that pot is a potential fire hazard. I would not use it.
