We've had this slow cooker for multiple years and have had good luck with it. But, over the past year we had the grey plastic handle, on the clear glass lid, crumble and fall apart while washing the lid. We did a temp repair job, since we needed to use the slow cooker, by placing a small bolt through the lid and putting two nuts on to have something to grab with a hot mitt. We just used the cooker again and I noticed the side handle is cracking and ready to fall off. All these plastic parts should be able to stand the heat temps that emit through the sides of a slow cooker. It has been a good cooker up until now with these problems, hate to have to buy a new one just because plastic parts are failing. There was a recall noted on another filed complaint on this site. I believe the recall was in 2005 which made it too old to affect that consumer and myself but thought I'd post my experience in hopes of warning other users of this model slow cooker. Thanks
