Can I use the ceramic liner from a slow cooker in the oven?
By Adrienne from Toronto
If you limit your heat to 350 degrees F., there whould be no problem. Also, considering it is ceramic, better to place the crock in a cold oven so that it warms gently, rather than putting it into a blazing hot oven (just to be safe). I researched this same query on the internet and have been successfully using it in the oven while maintaining these restrictions.
I didn't realize this could be done until one of my friends suggested it. Now, I use it to bake things like ziti or mac and cheese, in the oven, then, take the crockpot to work to keep the food warm.

I have used mine in the oven.. you just cant put the lid in the oven if it has plastic or rubber around it.

Adrienne, I have an oval crockpot liner from a crockpot that went bad and I kept it because underneath it is stamped-oven safe. joanie
Here are questions related to Can a Crock Pot Liner Be Used in the Oven?.
Can I use a crockpot liner in a regular oven? My heating element has failed and I would love to use the liner pot in a regular oven because it is a big casserole size and I hate to throw it out.
Here's the answer I just received back from Cucina:
I wouldn't. The heat can crack the pot. The slow cooker starts slow and builds up the temperature with the pot retaining the heat. Average slow cookers are designed to heat from only 170 to 280 degrees.

Do you really need the liner? I have never had anything stick to my crock-pot that a bit of a soak wouldn't get off. (02/26/2008)
