I love cooking a crock pot meal for nights when we are all eating at different times or too busy to cook, but want a hot meal. Except, I absolutely HATE cleaning the crock pot, it usually ends up sitting in the sink for days before I start to chip away at it. When I learned about slow cooker liners, I was skeptical if they would actually work. They are AWESOME. You just line your crock pot, put in the food, and after you eat, you pull out the liner and your crock pot is CLEAN! They really work! My favorite brand is the Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners.
