My pot of ten years! The handle for the cover came off. So sad! How will I hold the cover now when I cook with it? Here is how I fixed it in less than 5 minutes!

Step 1: The Cover and Handle.

The threading in the thermoplastic cover got broken and this is why the handle came off.

Step 2: The Replacement!

A stainless steel bolt with 2 nuts and 2 washers. Also a length of silicone hose I had left over from upgrading the vacuum hoses in my car.

Step 3: Putting It Together.

I slid the silicone hose over the bolt then tightened on a nut.

Step 4: Now to the Cover.

I put a washer on then put the bolt through the hole in the cover. Next I put the final washer then nut. Finger tightened and here is the new handle! The silicone hose will keep my Fingers safe from the heat.

Step 5: Completion!

Ah ha! Pot fired up and my chicken stew is on! I hope you have found this instructable useful!
