Slow Cooker Liner Buyer’s Guide
Size and Shape
Most manufacturers make slow cooker liners that suit average-sized oval and round slow cooker pots. If you have a pot in your slow cooker which is oversized, or a more unusual shape then check the dimensions carefully before you purchase.
One of the great benefits of slow cooker liners is that they can separate different recipes effectively allowing you to prepare two meals within the cooker at the same time.
If you have leftovers from a meal, you can store them in a liner in the freezer and then put the contents and the liner directly into the slow cooker. This also works well the other way around if you have cooked too much.
Crockpot liners are much easier to manage than the heavy ceramic inserts in most slow cookers, ideal for people who struggle to lift or who have limited mobility.
Take care when you are removing the contents from the cooker or crock pot as the liner can be hot and cause burns.
Always transport the liner and contents in a dish just in case there is any spillage, or the liner rips or tears.
It is a common question, are slow cooker liners safe to use particularly on hot settings, after all, no-one wants to burn the dinner or burn down the kitchen. This is especially important as slow cookers are often left unattended during the day whilst people are out at work.
Slow cooker liners are usually made from heat resistant nylon and are safe.
Another safety consideration is the composition of the liner with micro-particles potentially leaching into food. For this reason, it is always good to choose liners that are certified BPA free.
Most cooker liners are single use plastic so do not score highly on the environmentally friendly list although one or two manufacturers are now making biodegradable cooker liners.
