I had not heard of liners but may look for them. I have two slow cookers. The one that makes the best stews is well over 40 years old and is much better than the newer one. Unfortunately it seems to have lost some of its glaze and food sticks to the bottom if not stirred.

I've never heard of them, never had a need for them so never investigated their existence. I have more than enough crap in my kitchen cupboards as it is. So will continue without them.

News to me too.

Apparently they are useful for lifting casseroles or whatever out and storing in the fridge or freezer until needed. No washing of the pot required.

I had a pack in the cupboard for years but ended up donating them to the village Swap Shop where they were instantly snapped up by my DD who loves them.

Never heard of them, and I've been slow cooking for decades. Just soak the pot and then put it in the dishwasher.

Not sure if it’s safe to post this but I do use slow cooker liners and find them very useful. Our slow cooker is old and hard to clean. No need with her liners. To answer the op’s question I’ve bought them in Sainsbury and Morrison, also from Amazon. Each to their own I guess.

I never knew there was such a thing! Or that I needed one. I've never had to soak my slow cooker inner pot, even when I've done rice pudding in it. Isn't a liner just another thing to clutter up the kitchen drawer cling film, foil wrap, jiffy bags, freezer bags etc?

I thought the OP was talking about slow cookers that have a lift out pottery/pyrex dish inside, that you take to the table.

I have a very old slow cooker I inherited from an aunt at least 20 years ago. As soon as it is empty, I just fill it with hot water and a bit of washing up liquid, leave it to soak for an hour and then swill through, dry and put away. It is still as good as clean and as shiny as when new.

What are these disposable liners made of? foil? plastic? non-permeable paper?

Fairy liquid or the dishwasher

Me neither!

I've had a slow cooker for years and have never heard of using a liner.

I saw them in Sainsburys and wondered why!

Isn't it just something else to be disposed of in landfill?

My slow cooker is non stick , never had a problem yet even having cooked a 3 year old cockerel for 10 hours in it (coq au vin)!!

The liners are brilliant. No more soaking. I think I got them in Home Bargains or Asda.

Why would you need slow cooker liners? tchconfused

MiniMoon Thu 13-Dec-18 18:28:49

Try Asda. Otherwise they sell them on Amazon and eBay.

Where to buy? Can’t find locally and can’t justify online Lakeland order!
