I am new to the whole Crock Pot cooking since my mother in law just purchasd a new crockpot for my birthday. I had a question about the crock pot liners that were mentioned. Do we have to use them and what are they? Where do we purchase them? And my other question is, do they come in different sizes for different crockpots? Sorry if these are simple questions but I’m all new to this.

The liners are great for night-before preparation. Put the liner in a large bowl (similar to the size of your crock), add all of the ingredients, twist tie the liner closed and put in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning, just grap the liner, put it in your slow cooker, turn it on and head out to work. Really saves a lot of preparation time in the morning!

I absolutely love, love, love using the liners!!! It’s almost like eating and throwing away the pot instead of washing it!!!

The liners are definitely time savers. You can usually find them near the aluminum foil and plastic storage bags.

I LOVE the liners! I always use them so I don’t have to spend extra time scrubbing the crockpot.

Do you use liners with cakes or desserts?

Like Katie, I’m new to the crock pot world..recently discovered slow cooker liners and appreciate the minimal question is would liners help or hurt certain recipes? Does it even make a difference? I’ve had a couple of boo-boos with my crock following the recipe instructions to the letter. Wasn’t sure if the liners or the crock pot (or me!) was to blame.

I use liners all the time. Makes clean up so much easier. Another great use for them ~ if you have to get out early in the morning for work, just put one in a large bowl, add all of your ingredients, and then close it up with a twistie-tie, and put it in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, take the liner out, open it up, put it in your crock, turn it on, and head out the door!

Most definitely something to purchase! Clean-up is a breeze!
I find mine with the Reynolds wrap and Siran Wrap.

I only use them when taking my crock somewhere and then I don’t have to worry about cleaning it up where I’ve taken it or waiting until I get home and it’s a sticky mess. But they are so awesome to use. Otherwise, I just use cooking spray, or let it soak.

I have learned that the liners don’t work for out well in my crock all the time. I guess this is one of instances where knowing how your crock cooks is important. For example any recipe with red meat (like a roast) does not cook well with a liner, but any chicken recipe turns out fine. I’ve just been making a note in my cookbook next to each recipe to remind me if the liner worked or not.

Great tip, Melissa. Liners can work in almost any recipe. Jamie, I’ve used liners with lasagna so you shouldn’t have any problem. I’ve also used a liner with my desserts!

I have a question……i have a crock with a ceramic insert that has a hairline crack…on the bottom….and i will not replace it until i find a new crock that i like as much. It’s still useable, but wondering if just using the liners would be ok…i’m DYING for pulled pork and won’t make it without the crock! Think using the liners will be ok?! I HATE using my oven!!! lol

I think the liners would be okay…
