The plastic handle on my crockpot lid broke while the darn thing was practically new. I searched online
for a replacement and found many, many other owners searching for a new handle, too, though not many options. Grrr.
Then, Paul made me a handle out of a branch from a maple tree. It has lasted over three years. I think
I was lucky to get a year out of the plastic original.
I would love to see other pics of what folks have fixed and made better in the process.
