  • Avoid messy cleanups using slow cooker liners

     Recently, I received some promotional material concerning Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners. They are made of heat-resistant nylon and designed to make slow cooker cleanup fast and easy. The liners help you avoid all that soaking and scrubbing that is associated with slow cooking.

    Simply place the liner in the slow cooker bowl, add ingredients and cook as you normally would. After cooking, remove meal from the lined-slow cooker; allow to cool and then simply toss the liner away. The liners are optimally sized to fit 3 to 6.5 quart round or oval slow cookers.
