Many home cooks face the challenge of preparing meals for smaller households without wasting food. The introduction of silicone slow cooker divider liners has been a significant innovation for those using 6-8 quart oval slow cookers like the Crock-Pot & Hamilton Beach models. These reusable and leakproof dividers transform the way we cook, allowing for the preparation of multiple dishes simultaneously, making them perfect for smaller portions and diverse meals.
Customers have shared that the dividers have encouraged more frequent use of their slow cookers, from a sporadic schedule to 3-4 times a week. The convenience of starting the slow cooker before work and returning home to a fully prepared meal has been highlighted as a particular benefit. Not only does this assist in breaking the habit of ordering takeout, but it also promotes healthier eating habits.
Cleaning is a breeze with these silicone liners, as they are dishwasher safe. Users appreciate the ease with which they can be rinsed and placed in the dishwasher. The dividers are also noted for their non-stick quality and effectiveness in both slow cookers and air fryers.
However, some users have encountered issues with the liners being too small for their 7-quart cookers and not holding their shape well, which necessitates the use of clips to prevent the sides from folding over. Despite these concerns, the concept remains popular among users who enjoy the ability to cook different dishes in one pot.
