And that liner will be around somewhere on the planet for at least 100 years. Your grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, etc., etc., will not appreciate living with your garbage. A little olive oil before and a bit of scrubbing after is all that is needed.

I don't think I would even use my crockpot without a liner.  I started using the liners when I got a new crockpot 4-5 yrs. ago & it has never been used without them!
