Using a Crockpot Liner 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.

The instructions for my slow cooker says not to use the ceramic pot inside or on any hot appliance other than the slow cooker itself.

I just googled the manufacturer of mine (Cucina) and easily found their website and contact phone number and email for customer service so you should be able to find yours too.

I do seem to remember that there are some models where the ceramic pot can be used in the oven but there was a temperature limit. Best to ask the maker of the slow cooker itself.

Oh, and simply out of curiosity, I did just email Cucina asking if it's safe and what temperature for mine anyway. I'll update you here when I hear back from them with their answer.

No matter what, please don't just discard the pot because you can use it as a mini bucket for cleaning, storing items under the sink, make a table centerpiece out of it, etc. or, as Great Granny Vi mentioned, use it as a plant pot.

Here's the answer I just received back from Cucina:

Hi Deliliah,

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.

Thanks

Not sure about that. But you can use the liner to store leftovers in the fridge. I wouldn't reheat in it. My booklet says not to.

You can use it to plant cuttings in it, just don't over water. Also put water proof tape in a grid pattern on top and use that to hold cuttings from Christmas Cactus or succulents etc. in water to root.

You can go online .... email the MFG. and ask them.
Good Luck, GG Vi

Or donate it to a thrift store. Someone may have broken theirs and you would be saving them from buying a whole new crock pot.

I have successfully used the ceramic liner from my Procter Silex brand crock pot in the oven. I even bought another one from a thrift store, and also use that. I do not use the lids in the oven because they are plastic. This has worked for me. I do not know if it will for you.

I use my old crock pot liner to raise my bread dough. I just oil the inside, turn the dough over to coat it and put the lid on. The lid protects the dough from drafts, and it allows me to easily see when the dough has doubled in bulk. Works great!

Of course you can. It's stoneware. It gets heated while in the crockpot base. What is the difference if the heat source is now the oven? There is none. Use it freely. To be cautious, check the surface of the glaze in between uses to look for checks and cracks indicating that the ceramic below is breaking apart from the heat. But that could take years.
