It Takes Talent to Blow Up Small Appliances Without Trying

Crockpot LOL funny

I’m one of those people who has the talent of bringing unforeseen kitchen calamities to fruition. Although I haven’t set fire to a kitchen (yet), I did manage to blow up our crockpot Sunday. Now this was no ordinary crockpot. I won it at Miss C’s 5th grade middle school fall festival two years ago and it was a gorgeous deep red crockpot. I loved this crockpot. It was shiny and new and full of possibilities.

And now it’s dead.

That’s right. I’m a crockpot killer.

Fall is perfect crockpot weather and we’ve had amazing cool temps at night the past several days so I decided to make beef stroganoff Sunday. I pulled the crockpot out from our cabinet. Like the return of Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks, there’s something about breaking out the crockpot that signals fall to me. I hadn’t used our crockpot in a while so I washed out the ceramic pot, patted it dry, placed it in the crockpot and ZAP!

Not only did it scare the $#%@&* out of me, but it managed to completely fry the electronic circuitry and my husband had to flip the breaker switch. Thankfully I didn’t kill any of the other appliances plugged in to the same outlet.

Luckily I still had a backup old school slow cooker and was able to make dinner despite the unexpected death of my beloved crockpot.

So, what have you blown up in the kitchen lately? (Wink.)

    My husband broke my crockpot. I had jury duty, and he was taking care of dinner. He felt that it wasn’t cooking fast enough (missing the whole point of a “slow” cooker) and put it the ceramic pot on the open flame of our gas stove. It cracked instantly.
