Rubber Bands Keep Your Crock Pot in Tact

Potlucks are fun occasions for many reasons. Enjoying a meal at the table is a great way to form and build relationships with family, friends, co-workers, etc.

A possible downside to a potluck is transporting your dish from your kitchen to your destination, especially if your dish is in a Crock Pot.

It is trips like these that can give folks fits. You drive as cautiously as you can, but one little bump in the road or a turn taken a smidge too fast causes the lid to briefly jump up and produces a little spill to clean up.

Thanks to yet another crafty use of a rubber band, drivers and cooks no longer need to worry about this.

The next time you head out with your slow cooker, just stretch a rubber band from each handle to wrap around the lid knob, as pictured below.
