Free crockpot liner

On the one hand, the Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners appeal to me because you cook your meal and then throw the bag away; the clean-up is done.

On the other hand, I’m not sure that I’m quite lazy enough, yet, that I’m going to spend money on something just so that I can circumvent washing my crockpot.

Honestly, I’m torn.

The only logical resolution here is for me to sign up for a free sample of the liners and then see if it’s truly something I can’t live without, before I spend any money on it.


  1. Oh, I’m pretty sure I AM that lazy. But I guess I have to be really sure, so sending away for those suckers is a good idea.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    (I’m trying the blog thing. Because I want to be JUST LIKE YOU, oh beautiful and wise Mir.)


  2. I’m totally that lazy, and have, in fact, used them in the past. (For the record, my husband is usually the one to deal with crock pot cleanup, per our “I cook, he cleans up afterwards” deal, and he LOVES these things.)

  3. I use them and love them, but we still have no kitchen counter top or sink so washing dishes means the bathtub. Obviously my perspective is skewed.

    It does still leave a bit of clean up though. I’m not sure why, but even when we check for leaks and find none, we always have a bit of juice under the bag.

    I still love them though.

  4. ya know, i looked into buying some of those the other day, because one of our office girls was RAVING about them around Christmas bring-in time, but they’re sorta pricey! and just having washed out my FIRST CROCKPOT EVER this morning, i have to say, it’s pretty flippin’ easy!! (and, ya know, totally feeds into my habit of waiting until the next morning to wash things up (i know, i know..), lest i crack my stoneware due to the temperature change from the water :P)

  5. I heart the Reynolds slow cooker bags! Pink puffy heart them! If they seem too expensive for every day, casual use, save them for things like barbeque meatballs that simmer in sticky goo all day looooong…stuff that is a PAIN to scrub out.

  6. Just a tip… as I’m not sure what the price difference is… but you can use those roasting bags for chickens and turkeys for this as well. I’ve used them for that for years when I am feeling particularly lazy, which is pretty much every time I break out the crock pot. So you can pick up either depending on which is the better deal.

  7. I just found a bunch of crock pot recipes the other day, this is perfect timing! Although I have one where you can remove the crock itself and jam it in the dishwasher (it doesn’t fit very well but I make it!)

  8. I love my crockpot. I’m willing to try these if they make washing easier and if they don’t make the soups taste funny.

  9. i agree with jennifer s – i pink puffy heart those crockpot liners. just bought some more last night in fact. thank you for a link where i can get a free one!

  10. I like the idea in concept, but as one who uses only Nalgene water bottles if I can help it, and being rather sensitive to all those artificial chemicals, I am rather creeped out by the thought of what kind of chemicals are being released by that plastic into my food when it is heated up like that. I know it’s probably irrational but there it is.

  11. Um – are these things recyclable?
