How to fix broken top?

My ceramic damper top slipped out of my hand and broke.  It looks like the pieces will fit together pretty well, but is there a particular glue or epoxy I should use to repair it?


  • Jb weld. Available at most hardware stores and on amazon.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    JB weld is the shizznit.  Handles heat - peeps use it to glue broken fire boxes back together.  The ceramic top doesn't get very hot, so you could also probably get away with a more common adhesive like 5 minute epoxy.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.

    +1 JB Weld - duct tape in a tube..... for the handy man.

    Another epoxy might give you a more seamless repair, if looks are important to you.

    Broke mine about 2 months ago and fixed with JB Weld.  Not the best looking repair, but works fine even when shutting down from pizza temps.
