Slow cooker liners

Some slow cooker recipes say to grease the cooker before adding the ingredients. If you using a liner, do you still have to grease the liner or can you eliminate the greasing if using a liner. Thanks

My grocery store doesn't have the liners. I keep forgetting to see about them in another store. I'd follow the directions on the package, whatever that says.

I would not bother greasing the liner most likely, but if you post your recipe we will have a better idea if it is needed.

I bought the liners once, but decided they are not worth the cost. Yes they work and do exactly what they say they do, but they cost $1 per bag.

I wonder if the baking bags could be used = they are a bit cheaper, aren't they?

I am not familiar with baking bags. What are they made out of?

Sometimes scrubbing a slow cooker is a PITA. If it was a recipe that would cause massive scrubbing, I think a buck to avoid cleanup is worth it. if it is something rather easy to clean up, I agree.

Agreed BigDog. For those recipes that you know make a mess and are a pain to clean it sure is worth a buck.

I bought a box of the liners and man I do love them!!!! I just lift the bag out with the left overs and put in a sealable container... they are worth the buck to me. Usually after cooking in the crocpot, I soak the pot for awhile then scrub.... I hate the mess!!!

They are made of a type of mylar that withstands high heat. They do the job of keeping your slow cooker pretty cleans compared to scrubbing. It's a personal choice.

The baking bags - made by Reynolds, I think - for roasting turkeys, meats,etc. I wonder if they could be used in the crock pot.
