How to Make Crockpot Doily Steam Retainer
- Now the best part: Make a button hole for the handle to fit into in the center of the Doily. Make sure you stitch a rectangle in the center of the doily that is the width of the handle then cut the center out with an exacto knife and then embroider the edges. This will keep the Doily Resting on the glass lid and no steam can escape. It is also convenient to just pick up the lid and the doily when you need to stir the contents.
- Tip: When making Sauces or when you have filled your Crockpot to the brim and it is ready to over-flo when it bubbles (C'mon Now it happens sometimes) it is a good idea to use a large piece of Tin Foil cut out with a button hole in it underneath and on the glass. Just fold up the edges. That way the Doily does not get any juices on it or stains from Sauces. Plus you can lift the Doily on and off with the Tin Foil Attached with ease.
Caution: Make sure your Doily is Light Weight so that some Steam can escape. You want your Doily to rest Lightly on top of the glass. This Doily is only for Crockpots that do not Slow Cook Properly. You have to let the Crockpot be able to release some steam so don't seal the edges with the foil.
