After using my crock pot, I had a "cooked on, dried up" mess. I filled the crock up two thirds with water, added a drop of dish washing detergent, then turned it on low. After I came home in a few hours, I turned it off and let it cool. The "cooked on" mess was so easy to clean off!
The "high" setting works also, just depends on how quick you need it cleaned. I never have to avoid those messy recipes again.

I just spray the crockpot with cooking spray prior to putting the food in there and voila! No more cooked on gunk!
Baking soda works great for this too!
Next time you use the crockpot, brush cooking oil (I use ev olive oil) all around the interior sides and bottom. Cleanup is much easier.
All I can say is I love the Reynolds Crock Pot liners. No mess, easy cleanup, and never any cooked on food!
Crock pot liners are the best! Love your idea for those times when the liners aren't available though.
Thanks for the feedback!!! Thanks Countessj for the baking soda idea. I will try it too! I ALWAYS spray my crock pot with cooking spray, but when I make certain recipes it still messes up my crock ( ribs, etc.). And Neeinil...YES, I love the Reynold's crock pot liners, too! However, I use my crock pots so much, that it's just become an added expense. This works great for me!
