Soapbox Saturday - Slow Cooker Liners

I must confess.  I don't love cooking.  I tolerate it.  However, there is something magical about the crockpot.  You throw things into it and there is an amazing meal all ready after a day of crafting.  However, there are few chores I hate more than cleaning the crockpot.  If you haven't tried these, you have to!  You'll never go back.  Plus, you won't have to use a chisel or a drill hammer to clean up later. 

Ahhh-maz-ing!  Have any products you love?  Don't leave me in the dark.  Tell me in your comment.

  2. I love parchment paper... I put it down on the pan before I cook those ooey-gooey chicken wings in the oven... clean up is a breeze - just throw out the paper!!

    Love your blog!

  3. I can't live without my ipod. It's time you got on board. It makes my life so much more fun. Heck, just skip the middle man and commit to the iphone already! I know you want to!

  4. I make bacon in the oven on a cookie sheet. I cover the sheet in tinfoil and flip it about halfway through. The mess is minimal (sometimes a little fat drips under the foil) and it keeps the strips from burning as quickly.

  6. Crock pot liners and Parchment paper, 2 things you should never be without in the kitchen!! If you haven't tried them both, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

  7. Sometimes you can find a big ol' case of crockpot liners on Amazon for cheap. They're a different brand, but when they are reduced they're about 70% cheaper than the Reynolds.

    I, too, loath cleaning the crockpot. But I would rather clean that than a dutch oven! blah.

  8. I just bought my first box of those liners last week! Cooking dinner just got even easier. :)
    I love Mr Clean Magic Erasers. They truly are magic! (even the generic ones work like wonders) And spray Oxy Clean is a must in our home. I saved so many of my son's clothes thanks to that stuff.

  9. I haven't tried these but will!! Thanks! I love parchment paper and RELEASE FOIL!!!! I say if that was discovered because of a trip or two to the moon then the space program was money well spent. :D
    Happy Easter!

  10. I am thinking that everyone needs to try the handheld shark steemer. I know it's not a product-but it is one of the best things on the planet! It ALMOST makes cleaning fun. (almost)

  11. Oh yeah, those liners are the bomb. And now I am intrigued by the handheld Shark steemer. I use a Shark steamer for my tile floors and I lurve it.

  12. I second the magic eraser!! I use it to clean the bathtub and shower doors - a breeze! I also use it to clean my pyrex and other glazed ceramic bakeware. It gets the nasties off and leaves those pieces sparkling. I do follow that up with a wash of dish soap, though, because I don't know the ingredients that go into that magic, and it does freak me out a bit. Don't let my kids touch them. :)

  13. My favorite is a cooking bag, I don't know the name in English, but you put whatever you want inside, I love cooking veggies and chicken with it, spices and some olive oil, tie the bag, punch a hole or two in it and to the oven. after an hour you have yummy crispy chicken with almost no work.

  14. I totally heart the slow cooker liners! In fact, I do a weekly post on my blog and one of the things I talk about is things I love in my home; I wrote about these back in February! (http://sohelpmegod3.blogspot.com/2010/02/three-thought-thursday-episode-5.html) Another thing that is equally as awesome is the press and seal plastic wrap. Love it!

  15. Since I have never seen slow cooker liners in the stores here, I've managed to do without. The ceramic insert for my crock pot usually comes clean pretty easily.

    One product I love is our lemon juicer. A simple little gadget that cost about $5. Now I don't get lemon pits in all my food!

  16. I will be buying these bags. Thanks for the new product addition to my cupboard, and easy clean up. Throwing away the crowbar now!

  17. I use my crockpot at least 3x a week. I have a feeling it'll get expensive for me, though. Soaking over night seems to do the job for me. But then that means I have to clean it in the morning and not my husband. Maybe these bags are worth the extra few dollars a month! :)

  18. LOVE LOVE LOVE these liners! Whoever decided to manufacture these should get a prize!

    I also put tin foil on the bottom of my baking sheets EVERYTIME I use it (except for cookies) so there is no clean up there either.
