Default Putting, and keeping, a lid on it.

We keep our crock-pot lit from breaking and "wandering off on its own" with a piece of nylon cord and a kitchen towel.

Your crock pot needs the right sort of handles, though.

Good idea. I have used a short bungee cord basically the same way.

My crock pot has retainers that snap over the lid, no need for a bungee and the lid has a soft rubber seal around it so nothing slops out in travel. I'll have get a picture of it.

I was going to go with a bungee until I realized I could pass the string through the handles. With "solid" handles a bungee would be the way to go.

I was going to custom cut a bungee for the purpose until I got a look at the handles.

Now THAT's cool. It's made to transport with food in it. That will make you popular at the pot luck dinner!

A bungee could hook on the handles, I think. But it seems to me your way is just as good.

I have an old (1950s) sheet-metal pie carrier with a spring retainer for the lid. It can carry three pies on individual shelves inside, and prevents disaster in a vehicle. I bought it on eBay after one time I hit the brake in a pickup with a pumpkin pie on the passenger seat. It only took once.

We used to have the baked beans slop out on the floor of the car but not anymore. I use it to take the Sloppy Joe (Maidrite in the Mid-West) for selling at our little hamfest every September. Yeah, those panic stops can be messy.
