Is my crock pot broken?

SO I'm redoing some dishes because my dishwasher did a lousy job I have the crock in the sink and I"m putting things in the crock with water to soak ect. Well I was washing a heavy glass by hand and my hand slipped and I broke the glass against the edge of the crock. So there's a chunk of my crock missing about the size of a quarter by the lip. Other than it maybe sharp would I still be able to use it & just be careful? Or is integrity of the crock garbage once heat hits it (ie it would crack and crumble)?? What do you think?

I wouldn't think it would affect how it works unless the lid didn't fit as tightly. I used to use the crock as a dish basin, too, till I broke a glass and cut my hand. That put an end to that!

The lid fits fine it's a big chip on the outter lip & downward of it. Ouchie! I just figured since I had it soaking already I may as well dip some other dishes into it as well.

it should be all right, but be careful not to get food on the break

Since it is on the outer lip and not anywhere that would be directly touching the heated part I would think it would be fine. You will just have to watch out for that sharp edge when cleaning it in the future.

You could always tape up the spot with some duct tape to keep any further pieces from breaking off.
