Avoid Cleaning Crockpots

Crockpots can be a pain to get clean. So, here's a clever trick to help you save some time, energy, soap, and even money. Place a cooking bag in the pot, fill it with the ingredients for your recipe, close it up and slow cook and serve as usual. After dinner, all you have to do is pull the bag out, close it with a twist tie, and store it in the fridge. You can reheat it in the same bag in the pot for the next meal or you can keep it in the freezer. This saves on freezer bags, too!

Why not purchase the crockpot with removal inside and throw it in the dishwasher. Save your $$ from those expensive heat resist bags. At least this works for me

I like this idea, but would be a little cautious about using plastic to cook my food in with all the talk about chemicals transferring to food.

For all those crockpots and slow-cookers I use and recommend "Reynolds slow cooker liners". They are safe and easy to handle. You use it only once but is worth it. Walter
