I had the same thing happen recently too. I posted it on here around Xmas time. I initially sent an email using the link on the website, but it turns out that link doesn't work.
You need to contact Cobb Brian Sinclair at
They can provide you with a new outer for $29-00.
Ours was a couple of years old too, but we haven't used it all that often, probably a dozen or so times.
I'm hoping to get my replacement outer this coming week.

Dont be too harsh on them. I have had mine for 2 years. Cobb replaced the base for me - no charge (actually melted). There have been many posts (good and bad) on this forum. If I had owned a Cobb for 3 years I think I would just pay the $29 for a new base - not a big cost. They cook the best roast you will ever have in the bush.

I hear what you say, but how do you know when the base is going to melt/crack? Surely they should have modified it by now.

I agree with Shaker. It's not rocket science.

We've got a 20 year old Sunbeam frypan with plastic base (also does a wicked roast on 240v). Not even a sign of cracking.

Sunbeam got the technology for plastics longevity right over 20 years ago. You'd think in this day of modern plastics it wouldn't be that hard...

I have owned mine for about 14 months and used it many times. (used it last night at home to cook a leg of lamb)

I have read on here a few times of one or two problems occurring with the Cobb.

Have not experienced any problem with mine thus far. Maybe mine is an "updated" model?

If bleep happens and as long as Cobb are looking after their customers, I don't think it is a big worry anyway.

The Cobb is really the "Duck's Guts" when it comes to cooking a roast in the bush, or at home and with the frypan accessory they are even more versatile. I tend to use it more than I do the Camp Oven.

You just need the initial patience to wait for the briquettes to fire up properly.
