Anyone who's ever used a slow cooker will tell you, the worst part is the clean up. That's especially true if you have the kind where the ceramic pot is attached inside the unit and can't be submerged in water. That's why the people at Reynolds developed Slow Cooker Liners. This week we put them to the "Does It Work?" test.
Finally, a way to savor the flavor from your Crock Pot, with fast, easy clean up. "No soaking, no scrubbing," it says on the box. They're made to fit oval or round slow cookers. The texture is much like those cooking bags Reynolds makes. Open one up, and it's plenty big for our round "old school" Crock Pot. Just put the liner inside. It needs to fit snugly against the bottom and sides of the bowl. That's it. You're ready to start cooking.
We made barbecue. Cooked it almost 7 hours.
When we came back, we served it up until it was all gone. Now, the test. Did it leak, stick or melt? No, no and no. The Slow Cooker Liner pulled out clean without losing a drop. In fact, after the pot cooled, we just rinsed the lid and put it away.
"Does It Work?" We give the Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners and enthusiastic, "yes."
We paid $1.81 for a pack of four at Brookshires.
