Crockpot storage

How do people transport a crockpot. Seems everything rattles around in the trailer and the bouncing would be hard on the pot.

Do you haul them in the tow vehicle? I have lots of storage under the bench, do I just need to pack stuff tight around it? Do people leave the glass lid at home and use foil on top instead?

Maybe this should have been in problem solving or food section.

I've transported my large crock in a plastic milk crate. I put a kitchen towel between the ceramic crock and "cooker" portion... whatever that's called. My crock has a plastic lid, but if yours is glass a towel there would help too.

Hi,
I kept its original packing box and the foam things that protect it. When we're on the road I put it in its box and keep it under one of the seats.

i do exactly the same as donna. ours has a glass lid and a towel works perfectly to stop the bounce and protect the glass. the milk crate, in my case, also affords room to pack in a few other things as well.

We have two drawers under one dinette bench. I store the Crock Pot beside the two drawers in the forward part of the bench along with a fan, electric heater and lantern.

I do nothing to protect it other than taking the knob off and putting in inside the pot. Our pot has a plastic cover, just turn it upside down.

Thanks everyone. Guess I'll get a milk carton, or something, and stick it under the bench with all our extra boots and other junk. Now all I will need is electricity and hanging around a campsite while the cooking is happening.

The uses of the milk crate are more than you will ever imagine. I have two that fold down flat. Dont remember where I got them. Perhaps WalMart. I dont have a crock pot to take to a gathering but my electric drip coffee maker rides in the sink with a towel around it.

Corckpot Storage

I just put mine in the cabinet with my kitchen towels in it and a bath towel around it. I am lucky because mine doesn't have knobs,just a flat push button screen.

Mary is a quilter, so she makes quilted bags to pack the delicate stuff in. We have bags for our custom made camping sign , the toaster oven, regal picnic pack, and a couple vintage stoves. I think the crockpot is still in it's original box though. It's just a cheap mini one from walmart. Bob

Bubble wrap also works well to protect glass lids and provide cushioning between things.
Walmart and other stores sell it by the roll so you can cut the size you need, and it is lightweight and inexpensive.

Our ceramic crock pot is big, heavy and fragile so we bought a smaller, aluminum one for the trailer. It has a glass lid which we cover in bubble wrap. If we just have to have the large one for a pot luck, we end up putting it in the truck.

Nice to have a quilter. We have moved to almost entirely plastic except for coffee mugs and a couple of glass plates for slice and dice.
