Nicole, how do the crock pot liners work re prepping food for the
crock pot the night before? I'd like to prep for a busy day by having
the food in the fridge in the crock pot the night before, all prepped
and ready to just put the insert into the base and press the amount of
time I need and just go about my day , but have been afraid to do it
because I wasn't sure whether the insert would be able to handle it.
How does the liner fit in to the picture?

Thanks,
Dani
