I'm sorry to hear about your crock pot. I have several KitchenAid small appliances, bought before I found about about them being made in China and several were gifts, anyway I would do some serious research before replacing with new.
I have to say I've never had a problem with Kitchenaid, BUT, have read many reviews / heard many problems others have experienced.
So I guess I've just been lucky?
Apparently they are made in China and quality control / assurance is very spotty or insufficient.
So this has made me feel very leery and uncomfortable of purchasing Kitchenaid. It's expensive. I bought a stand mixer for the color; because it was purple; but I don't think I'd buy another Kitchenaid anything, until things change in the quality department.
I have bought several brands of crockpots in the past, and might again if I get them at Goodwill. But if I'm buying new, then I'm buying Rival. I've never had weird problems with Rival. Tho I'm sure someone else reading this thread, may have.
My beautiful Kitchen Aid 7qt slow cooker BROKE. There is a giant crack that goes all the way thru, starting at the middle all the way up the side. I did a bit of searching online and it seems this is a common problem with that model, and of course it's out of warranty. $150 wasted :( Anyone have similar problems? I'm so bummed.
