How can I repurpose a cracked crock pot?
I have a crock pot that leaks when I cook so I’ve decided to stop cooking with it. Any ideas on repurposing it? I thought about a flower pot.

Nik....Must be a crack if it is leaking so add rock to bottom and good soil and plant away!
Oh I agree with your idea I think we make a charming planter. It’s a black color will make a nice contrast for colorful blossoms or green foliage
A little crack in the bottom will not provide adequate drainage for a living plant. Place it in a very sturdy bag and smash it with a hammer. The pieces can then be used in the bottom of a plant pot to add necessary drainage for a new plant.
How about a fairy garden.
My favorite thing is to plant something a little too tender for outside year round, in a pot like that. Put it out during the growing season, bring it back in when it gets cold. If the pot cracks further not much of a loss, and you just pick your bulbs or plant material out carefully and put them in something that looks good inside. Basically the pot is its home away from home when it is an outside plant, and you re-pot it when it comes back in.
Hello, it would make an awesome pot for a succulent fairy garden, put a liner in the bottom or set it on a tray to prevent leakage, you can fill the lower part up to about half full with a lightweight filler like Styrofoam peanuts, old plastic pill bottles or other items that will fill the void, it will also be lighter to move around. Then put a layer of succulent mix in to fill it to almost top. You can put in the succulents first then add items in to create a fairy garden.
I can’t find your answer? Where do I look for the answer to my question?Do you use a paint strictly for metal?

On a more serious note, did you know that oven-proof baking liner/bags can be purchased in larger sizes to fit this crock pots. Used according to instructions, they are meant to be used inside the crock pot (while the slow cooker cooks as usual) to eliminate the messy clean up afterwards. I would suggest that you purchase some of these bags, and give them a try, as doing so may extend the life of your appliance.
