the insert cracked straight thru. i don't know if it was thermal shock or what. but it died nobly making its last batch of turkey stock last night. noticed the crack while cleaning it. never leaked. i'd just like to get a replacement insert. but the crock website says they're not available online. i got this one at costco years ago. came with one of those mini dipper doo dads. it's 6qt rival semi programmable brand.
ugh. what should i do? i use it primarily for stocks, chili, and corned beef. i don't think i need the one you can saute in. something simple. but when i add this one to my cart, the price drops to $40..... what say you, friends?
