I am always shocked to find out the No. 1 reason people don't like using their crock pots is the clean-up issues. Yes - back in the day - I too remember thinking cleaning the crock took as long as the thing took to cook the meal.
However, now there are great crock pot liner bags on the market. Buy the pack of three liners for about $3 and never look back...get the crock out!
I believe the crock is one of the best multi-taskers out there. Cooking dinner for you while you are doing other things! I find knowing that dinner is cooking and will be ready for us after a busy day makes my whole day better. No last-minute dinner prep or panic - just a hot meal ready to go. BLISS!
