Slow Cooker on Pesach (Pt 3)

Dear Rabbi Simon
I think I asked you about my slow cooker a while ago.
I am hoping to use the slow cooker over the chag – it says “don’t use a timer” (but doesn’t say why – so I hope to try using a timer before Pesach to see what happens! If it doesn’t explode, it should be safe!).
My question is: The pot in the slow cooker is ceramic. If I’m correct, ceramics can’t be kashered for Pesach. I always use a “slow cooker liner”, so the food doesn’t touch the pot directly. Can I thus use it for Pesach?
Thank you.
Best regards

Hi Sheva
Interesting question re slow cooker liner. If you are confident that you have only used the ceramic pot with the agency of a liner, you may use it in this way on Pesach as well.
To be on the safe side I would advise using a double liner during Pesach. You do not need two new liners every time. You can re-use the same additional liner repeatedly (as long as it is clean).
Best wishes
Rabbi Rashi Simon

Ask the Rabbi: Quinoa on Pesach
Dear Rabbi Simon,
Where do you stand on quinoa (and the kitniyot ban) for Pesach?
Many thanks,
Dear Tzippy,
In line with other American authorities, I am in favour of quinoa. Although I reject completely the voices (mostly from Israel) seeking to abolish the ban on kitniyot entirely, IMO we do not need to include in the prohibition pseudo-grains that were unknown in the Old World until modern times. Best to buy with a Pesach hechsher though, to be free of any possible wheat contamination.
