The Motherloot Blog: Product Reviews

The Reynold’s company contacted me and asked if I would be game to review their Slow Cooker Liners that are now part of their product line. As someone who uses her slow cooker regularly, I was very anxious to give this product a try and see what I thought about it.

Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners are made of heat resistant nylon and designed to make slow cooker cleanup fast and easy. The liners help you avoid all that soaking and scrubbing that is associated with slow cooking. All you have to do is place the liner in the slow cooker bowl, add ingredients, and cook as you normally would. After cooking, remove meal from the lined-slow cooker, allow to cool, and simply toss the liner. It’s that easy!

Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners are 13″X21″ liners, optimally-sized to fit 3 to 6.5 quart round or oval slow cookers. There are 4 liners in each carton.

For my review, I decided to roast a chicken in the slow cooker. This is one of those messier meals that I don’t enjoy cleaning up at all. I wanted to really put these bags to the test and cleaning up after roasting a chicken is one of my least favorite tasks.

I was not disappointed at all, as the product actually did contain my entire dinner in the bag with no mess on the outside for me to clean up. I was able to easily take the chicken out and pour the drippings into a pan to make gravy.

To be honest, I don’t usually mind cleaning out my slow cooker so this is not a product that I would buy regularly. This would be a great investment for entertaining though or for really messy dishes (like red sauces),where cleaning up can be more time consuming.

    Thank you so much for the recipies! I’m up in NH and we are getting snow again today and more coming over the weekend so the crock pot will get lots of use. I love cooking that way so that when I get home, I don’t have to hear “Whats for dinner and how long before we eat?”. I’ve never used the liners, but now I think that I may give them a try.

    I got a sample of the liner and used it this weekend on my Easter pot roast. I actually wasn’t impressed, but it was probably due to user error.

    Because of the extra plastic folded back over the opening, the lid didn’t get put on my crockpot straight and a good bit of the liquid cooked out.

    It’s not something I would buy on a regular basis (and I use my crock pot all the time), but I’m with you…it could be handy on those super-messy dishes!
