    The crockpot I bought today came with a little bitty pot that's apparently for dips. The little bitty pot came with a plastic lid. (The "real" crockpot came with a glass lid.) The sample recipes for the baby pot say "covered." Does this mean that the plastic lid can be used for cooking? Anyone know?

    Thanks.

    Hi, I have a 1.5 baby crockette that came with a glass lid. I am just getting ready to post a really tasty apple dessert that I made in it today.

    Some crockpots come with plastic lids. I prefer the glass ones. I had one with a plastic lid which I returned, but to answer your question, yes you would use the plastic lid on it.

    Thanks, Dawna. This baby's nowhere near a quart and a half. It looks like a cup or maybe 2 c. max. I'll try the plastic lid, if I even use this for anything at all. It happened to come with the 6-qt. pot I wanted; wouldn't have gotten it, otherwise.

    My original crock pot came with a plastic lid. So don't worry it wont melt.

    My new SmartPot has a glass lid, I wonder why the changes?

    I have a baby crock with a plastic lid and yes it works just fine with it. I use it mostly at Christmas melting chocolate for dipping. I've also used it for chili/cheese dip for chips. Go ahead and use it...it's great. [img]tongue.gif[/img]

    I have a baby crockpot that I rarely use...mostly for warm cheese dips at parties.

    Anybody have some great ideas? I like the idea of using it for a mini apple crisp or something like that.

    Help me out buddies.

    My old crockpot came with a plastic lid, but the new one is glass. I would imagine they were getting complaints about the plastic getting scratched. My old lid was so scratched up and fogged that I could barely see through it.
    Things I'm Most Looking Forward To:
    No more back fat!
    More E-N-E-R-G-Y!
    Buying stylish, not oversized clothes
    Packing smaller clothes
    Living long enough to see my grandchildren grow up
    Having a stable wardrobe
    Ability to handle cravings
    The END of binging!
    A healthier me!

    I have a small crock pot that I use all the time. There is only my husband and me and we do not like leftovers. It will hold 2 pieces of chicken or 2 pork chops with what ever sauce you are using with them. I also use it for desests.

    I also have a small crockpot with a plastic lid. I noticed that it has one stationary temperature so that the heat elements don't get too hot. The glass topped crockpots usually have a high or low setting and a warm depending on what brand you have. I've cooked chicken breasts in my small crockpot with no problem. I think the time is just longer for each recipe.

    I bought a small one on purpose to try the apple crisp recipe, But when I was reading the little book(it is 1.5 w/plastic lid by the way) It said Oatmeal. and I love the Irish oatmeal.and it has to cook 1/2 hr. But if I put it in the little crock before I go to bed, it is done in the morning I do 2 servings. then reheat the second serving the the micro next day.
    But I did see 1.5 with glass lid and removable crock. so I might go back and buy this. .
    That would make 4 crockpots. can you say to many???
