Here are a few Crock Pot safety tips for you, from the folks at The Kitchn.
Get a new Crock Pot if yours is showing any of these signs:
1. The cord is fabric-wrapped, indicating it is old and not up to today's safety standards.
2. The insert is not removeable. Again, this is an indicator of an old slow cooker that is not up to current safety standards. (Plus, they're harder to wash!)
3. The lid doesn't fit the insert well. This will mean too much steam will escape and you'll end up with dry meats.
4. It's not heating up properly. It may indicate that the heating elements are old and/or damaged.
