What a simple, brilliant invention! By their very name, slow cookers/crock pots are quite hefty pieces of equipment, exaggerated it you have muscle wastage and/or arthritis. These bags completely remove the need to haul the heavy bowl to the sink to clean. Contrary to some other opinions, food stuff DOES get stuck and burnt onto the sides of these pots if not lined with one of these bags, I've even removed the whole bag, once the cooked contents have cooled completely, and popped directly into the freezer. I have never had a bag split or burst, but that doesn't mean accidents don't happen. On the whole, I'm more than satisfied with this product and have no hesitation in recommending these slow cooker liners.
As a struggling cook, i have relied on my slow cooker for years. But why i didnt buy this excellent product before, is my loss! All i have to do now is wash the lid. What a fantastic invention. Full marks.
Best thing since sliced bread , these really are. I hate washing up and this eliminates all of that. I line my crockpot with the bag and if cooking a joint or a chicken etc I take a sheet of foil and fold it over and over and when in a long strip about 4" wide I put this into the bag before the joint etc, makes getting everything out so much easier.
Brilliant! After reading some of the reviews I was a bit dubious if these liners would actually work... But they do! I put it in my 5.7l cooker, initially the liner seemed really big but once ide added the marinade and pork shoulder it filled it out a bit. Cooked it on high for 6 hours. I saved some of the marinade for later, then just scooped up the bag and tossed it in the bin. No scrubbing the bowl/pan needed... just a quick wipe round! Wish ide known about these bags sooner! Thank you
I'm more inclined to use my slow cooker now I have found these. No more washing up, just a quick wipe round with a cloth. Any leftover residue can just be picked up and put in the bin. I haven't tried to freeze leftovers yet as there aren't generally any to freeze.
Excellent for meal prep if you need to use your slow cooker for more than one recipe. Managed to use two bags at once to cook pulled pork at one side and curry at the other, without the two mixing due to the liners! Also great to store what you've cooked as the bags can be sealed and frozen. Would definitely recommend!
Great for keeping your chicken and juices together although when you lift out it is easy for the juice to escape back into the slow cooker. So you still end up having to clean it bit much easier than normal.
