The worst part of using a slow cooker is cleaning it afterward, so I’m going to let you in on a secret that is the best investment you can make in your slow cooker: Liners.
These are not actually a secret and have been around for a while, but they were pretty life-changing when I started using them in the fall.
You can find them from brands such as Reynolds and Crock-Pot, online or in the grocery store, and the few bucks it will set you back is absolutely worth the time you will save scrubbing the darn thing.
January is National Slow Cooking Month, if you need an excuse to break out the slow cooker and buy the liners.
