Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners
We were going to be away from the house all day, so I put dinner in the crockpot before leaving. Since it was St. Paddy’s Day, I put a nice cut of corned beef in the crockpot – along with attached seasonings packet, a bottle of beer (Bridgeport India Pale Ale), new potatoes, carrots and a sliced onion. When we arrived home, our dinner was waiting. All I had to do was steam a little cabbage.
And, wow, was the clean-up ever easy too, because I used one of the new Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners. Though it does take up half the dishwasher, the ceramic crock of my slow cooker is dishwasher-safe and the dishwasher does a great job on clean-up. But, I was “experimenting” to see how the new liner bags would hold up for future use in the RV. (Always thinking of you, Dear Readers.)
The crockpot liners are made of nylon and seem (to me) to be the same as oven roasting bags… except in a shape for a crockpot. (Reynolds states on their website that though the material is the same, the products are different and you should not use an oven bag in your crockpot or a crockpot liner as an oven bag. The liners are also certified kosher.) I have a large 5-quart oval crockpot and the bag fit great! I served the beef and veggies on a platter and left the slow cooker/Reynolds liner to cool while we enjoyed our dinner. There was quite a bit of liquid left-over, so I carefully gathered the entire bag by the top edges and lifted it into the sink – but not a drop spilled and there wasn’t so much as a spatter on the ceramic pot! (Of course, I still had to wash the lid.) After only using the crockpot liners once, I can guarantee there will always be a package in the motorhome. The bags are really inexpensive too, in supermarkets everywhere and weigh next to nothing – perfect for your RV.
