    Thumbs up You don't have to clean your pot anymore!

    Hi there all you crockpot lovers! I didn't know if anyone had posted this already,so if they have, just ignore this post, please!

    I found Reynold's crockpot liners at WalMart and they work just great. I used it when cooking a roast last week. It was SO much better than cleaning the crockpot. I just took the bag out and threw it away!! Wonderful!

    Yes, they were on that same aisle. I am such a priss and picky person. I HATE cleaning nasty dishes that have stuff caked on them. I especially hated cleaning our crockpot.

    The liners really do work well. I have used them twice now.

    I just saw that commercial too! Do they come in different sizes? I have a pretty big oval shaped crockpot. I hope they will have 1 to fit mine! I hate cleaning that big thing--why didn't I think of these liners?? LOL

    It is for crockpots from 3 - 6.5 quarts if I'm not mistaken.

    WOW!!!!

    I can't believe someone didn't think of this sooner. I usually spray my crock with Pam so it doesn't get THAT bad. But it's bulky and hard to wash in the sink.

    My crockpot is very easy to clean up, without the liners, so I'm curious why this is an issue. What I do is, after we eat dinner (from the crockpot), I put the leftovers in the fridge right away and leave my crockpot to soak in hot, soapy water overnight. In the morning, I just rinse it out, and everything comes off like magic. Just let it soak. Cheaper than buying liners, I think. Just my 2 cents.

    Some of us are lazy. My concern is the plastic. I know there is concern about plastic leaching, and this seems like the perfect leaching opportunity, especially if you are going to be using it where it is heating up.

    Personally I LOVE the new liners. My crock pot is huge and I have no dishwasher except for me so I do soak it and I also use Pam spray or one like it but it never fails to leave something in there I have to scrub out. I have a double sink but it is not big so it is awkward to wash it. My old crock pot would sometimes hit the side and the handle broke off several times because it was like ceramic or something and dh would glue it back on for me. I still have to wash it out after using the liners but it just wipes right up - I don't have do it every time because most of the time there is just some condensation. The plastic does not melt and I just pick it up and toss it or pour it in our composter. I wish I had these liners years ago.

    I don't like the thought of my food stewing in plastic for eight hours....


    But I do HATE cleaning the crockpot.

    But I'm too cheap...so I'll pass on it.

    I started using these when I made oatmeal in the crockpot. Can you say cement?

    I know this is an old thread, but I thought I'd bump it up and share a cleaning tip.

    When you have a pot (Crockpot, frying pan, whatever) with tough food on it, just fill it with hot water and dump some liquid fabric softener in it. You can also use a fabric softener sheet. Soak for a bit, and the stuff just falls off the pot. We buy the el cheapo store brand fabric softener and keep it under the sink for pots like this.

    Wow Gin, that's very interesting. I've never heard of that before. Thanks for sharing that. I'm going to try it next time I have something hard to clean!

    I saw them a few years ago before Xmas and put one in each family member's Xmas stocking. My crockpot does build up hard crusting on one side. I don't use it for corned beef but do for soups and casseroles. It is a blessing at the holidays when it is so hard to keep ahead of the dishes and counter and sink space is at a premium for the soaking period.

    The year before everyone got Reynolds Release foil from me. My family and friends tend to be frugal and would not buy these products for themselves. And my sons are always looking for an easier way to cook and clean.
