Do you hate scrubbing your slow cooker when food gets stuck on it? Those plastic slow cooker liner bags are cool and all, but I really dislike the notion of buying one-time-use products that are designed to be used one time and then thrown away.
In the end those bags just end up in the landfill just so I can avoid scrubbing a dirty pot.
Not worth it.
So when Mrs. V’s Kitchen contacted us about a month ago and asked if we would be interested in trying out their reusable Silicone Slow Cooker Liners AND giving away 5 of them to 5 lucky Crock-Pot Ladies readers I was so excited!
So, Mrs. V’s Kitchen sent me 2 of these silicone liners for my slow cooker in the mail and gave me plenty of time to test them out on several recipes.
My Review Of Mrs. V’s Kitchen Silicone Slow Cooker Liners:
Here is what you need to know:
- One Size that fits 7.0 quart oval slow cookers. May fit some 6.0 quarts and 6.5 quarts also but you need to measure your crock. This liner is 10 in long x 7.38 in wide x 4.25 inches tall.
- REUSABLE: Unlike the plastic reusable one time bag crock pot liners you can buy, this silicone crock pot liner is made to be used hundreds of times which will save you money in the long run.
- SAFE: Our silicone slow cooker liners are made of 100% food grade silicone, BPA Free and Non-Toxic.
- FAST CLEANUP: You can hand wash with warm soapy water or stick in the dishwasher for easier cleaning. No more scrubbing the big bulky ceramic slow cooker crock

The first recipe I tried the liners on was a simple crock-pot full of frozen meatballs and a jar of spaghetti sauce. Nothing fancy but my husband’s favorite quick dinner while at work out in the oil fields here in Wyoming.
Because we make a batch of simple saucy Italian meatballs like once a week I know how difficult stuck on sauce can be to scrub off the slow cooker.
So I threw one of the Silicone Slow Cooker Liners in my 6.5 quart slow cooker, dumped a bag of frozen meatballs in and added some jarred spaghetti sauce and turned it on to cook.
Before work my husband scooped his meatballs into plastic containers, packed one for work and threw the rest in the refrigerator for the rest of the week.
Later that evening I pulled the slow cooker liner out of the crock-pot, put it in the top rack of my dishwasher and ran it through with our normal load of dirty dishes.
The next morning I unloaded the dishwasher and the liner was perfectly clean and I was already impressed!
We have since cooked 4 batches of saucy meatballs in the liners and the clean up is like a thousand times better than scrubbing the ceramic insert.
Spaghetti sauce is his favorite, but my husband also like BBQ sauce or Teriyaki glazed meatballs too.
Oh I know I could just put the ceramic insert in the dishwasher. But when you have a family of 9 people there is just not enough room in the dishwasher for the Crock-Pot AND all the dirty dishes we make. This silicone liner fits on the top rack of our dishwasher and takes up far less space.
You can also hand wash it if you need to. The non-stick properties of silicone make it easy to clean no matter if you wash in the dishwasher or by hand.
The other meal I made in the slow cooker liner was test recipe (I do a lot of testing on recipes before they ever make it to the blog here). It was a French onion meatloaf and boy was it onion-y (and too salty…I am still working on this recipe folks…the first try was not good…not good at all).
The liner…oh yeah this is about the liner…well it worked great for cooking the meatloaf. But when all was said and done the liner did hold on to the VERY pungent onion smell even after hand washing in dish soap (Dawn). That night I didn’t have any room in my dishwasher for the liner so I hand washed it instead.
I could still smell the onion after washing it so I make a paste of dish soap, baking soda and a little water and spread that around in the liner and let it sit on the counter overnight.
In the morning I washed it with hot water and the smell was gone.
Not that big of a problem but something I wanted to mention since we get a lot of emails regarding slow cooker smells…
