    Does anyone know???? My crock pot quit heating...Can I use the stone liner and lid in my oven for slow cooking? If not .... anyone have any ideas of possible use for the liner. No drainage hole so flower pot is out of question..too big for paper weight!

    I would think that you can use it in the oven as its stoneware. I'm going to be watching this topic.

    I would think so - but I'm giving that opinion without having ever tried it.

    So YOU try it and let US know! :)

    I don't know why not... it is made to take the heat :D:D:D

    DD bought one to use as a dog water dish, it is heavy enough it stays in place :wink:

    Check the bottom, it should tell you if it's oven safe. If not ... you can drill holes in the bottom for a planter. If it breaks while drilling it, then bury it so it's 1/2 out of the ground then plant stuff around it as if it fell and the flowers "spilled" out.

    My old crock pot died and I saved the tall round crock insert to bake/roast in the oven. It can take very high heat. It is excellent to roast the upright chickens (beer can chicken). It's usually easy to find the crock inserts at thrift stores. I have a big oval one I use to bake big casseroles for potlucks. The food stays warm a long time and the crock pot lid fits perfectly. But I don't put the lid in the oven. I cover it with foil if the pot needs to be covered.

    Thanks for the replies. Think I will put a roast in the oven this week. Of course it will have all the goodies with it......potatoes, carrots, onions and what ever else I can find in the fridge. I just did not want a mess to clean up in the oven.,,,,

    I wouldn't put the lid in the oven. Mine has a rubber gasket around it so it would melt.

    You might want to call the manufacturer to check. I hate you to have it go crrrrrack and lose your food that's cooking. To say the least about the mess to clean up!

    I often use my crock as a large mixing bowl!

    I agree with this. I would give it a try in the oven before trying to actually prepare something in it. See if it will hold up to the normal oven temp.
    Here is a link for you to check out that talks about this subject.

    At Thanksgiving my sister always baked her broccoli casserole in the crock pot insert in the oven and then put it in the metal part to keep it hot. Never any problems.

    I use my old crockery liner in the oven - like the size for large piece of elk roast, or fpr casserloe to serve large group of family/friends.

    If you did want to use it for a planter, all you have to do is put some broken crockery(plant safe),broken terra cotta pot, or stones in the bottom for drainage. Works like a charm.

    I can testify that you should not put it on a burner. The oven
    on a low heat, I'd say yes. I have a metal slow cooker now
    and love it. From the burner to brown and into the oven or
    on the hot plate that it cooks on. Really nice and convenient.

    I don't know about the oven, but I put one on my stovetop once to make gravy and the thing shattered!

    You just can't use the lid in the oven.

    I have one that I put in the refrigerator or freezer to cool and use it for potato salad. Works great.

    It is made to take heat but I don't know it if takes heat as high as an oven. I would try it with a small amount of water in the bottom just in case it cracks.

    My suggestion would be to use it as a planter with some kind of an inset so that water can drain down so as not to rot a plant since you cannot drill a hole in it or it will crack for sure.

    Maybe make some quilted flowers for a bouquet that doesn't neet to be watered.
