Question New crock-pot casserole cooker..

Has anyone used the new crockpot casserole cooker and if so, what has been your experience with it? Did you use a liner and I wonder if I could line it with foil? Any TAT recipes would be welcome.

Hi and welcome to Discuss Cooking

Can you be more specific? What is the brand of this appliance? Does it have a more specific name?

Welcome to DC, ovannie!

Not really sure what you're referring to, but many of us here LOVE the Nesco roaster. It comes in different sizes, and is programmable to slow cook, bake, and high heat roast. It's pretty much an all-in-one counter top appliance. The cooking well is removable and is so easy to clean, I've never had the need to line it. Here's the one I have.

NESCO® Oven Roasters, Accessories | Official Nesco.com

As far as recipes - the blue bar on the top of the page here has many cooking categories...check them out and have fun! Ask away if you have any questions.

Crock-Pot Casserole Crock 3.5-Quart Slow Cooker - Walmart.com

I think this is what is being discussed. I've seen them in the stores but know nothing about them. Looks like you can "bake" any casserole in them that you would put in a 9x13 pan in the oven.

Thanks for the link Jabbur, that clears up the question.

Welcome to Discuss Cooking ovannie. Why would you want to line it with anything?
You may want to spray it with Pam, but it looks easy enough to clean.

I agree with Kayelle. My slow cooker has a ceramic insert and it's really easy to clean. Lining it with foil might cause overcooking, since it would insulate the dish more than it's designed to be.

Crock Pot brand

It's a crockpot brand cooker...I have trouble holding/washing heavy ceramic pieces and this is heavy)..I use C. P. liners in my regular pot and was wondering if foil would also work? Thanks for any info...

Well, the C.P. liners would be the wrong shape, and I wouldn't use foil for fear of it tearing when serving, in addition to what Got Garlic said.

Don't use any type of liner unless they sell one specifically for this. As others have pointed out, it may insulate it too much. This could at best burn the food and at worst cause a short.

New crock-pot casserole cooker..

As Cheryl pointed out, some of us love our Nesco roasters. If you have physical issues, the non-stick Nesco cookwell is a lot lighter than a ceramic crockpot container and can easily be washed.
