Is this right? It is a normal crockpot. This is not my first language, but to my understanding it says that I should not lock the hook with the latches down (meaning, hermetically close the pot).

  1. That is correct. The latches should only be locked when transporting or storing. It should be unlocked during cooking due to thermal expansion.

    Hot+Lock=boom (okay people are taking the boom part too literally, its not a pressure vessel, so it wont “explode” but the glass most certainly can shatter and that *could* send glass flying).

    Also, now my most voted comment is about a crockpot lid, how did my life end up here?

  2. On your handles do they have latches? If so you cook with them unlocked. They’re only there for traveling so it doesn’t spill in the car. Otherwise the lid will bust and glass will go everywhere.

  3. I’m assuming there is no hole in the glass lid. In that case, yes, leave the latches unhooked. As the liquid starts to boil, there needs to be a way for the pressure to be released.

    The slow cooker I have has a small hole in the lid so I don’t need to worry about it.
