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!
