Crockpot knob - where can I get one?

Where can I get a knob for my crockpot? Mine broke off, and I now use the know from my cooktop to change the setting. i would prefer to get a new knob, but don't want to buy a whole new crockpot.

I would not recommend buying a new one, taking the knob off, then returning the new one as missing a part.

Although I have relatives who do that kind of stuff regularly.

I'd contact the company and see if they can supply one, myself.

Yeah, I will not be buying a new one and returning it sans knob! I already put an ad on craigslist, but will look into getting one from the company too.

You could also look up if there are replacement knobs for your cooktop and just use that.

Radio Shack still carries some electronic parts, including rheostats (voltage controls) and knobs. You can also check with a local electronics repair shop. Nearly all of them have a junk drawer with that kind of item buried in the corner, and you might even be able to get it for free.

I agree with Selkie - if you want it fast and cheap (although it might not be an exact look-alike replacement) check Radio Shack.

Well, this knob doesn't fit perfect so I would rather get a better fitting one. I will try a local repair shop.

I stayed at a bed -n- breakfast in Crockpot Knob.

You can get all kinds of knobs online here for example Cookware Fittings-Knob/Handle
Also Lowes and Ace hardware both sell replacement knobs - they may not be a direct replacement, but they should work.
