You don't indicate which loin cut or whether boned. The first cut is fatty and is ok for the crock pot but the center and last cut are much too lean. You also don't indicate the size, with a slow cooker a large chunk of pork loin will become tender on the exterior long before it cooks in the center. I don't have any use for crock pots. Since you don't want to heat your kitchen by lighting your oven then for pork loin I'd braise it on the stove top, and I'd first slice it into 1-2" chops-medalions so it'd cook evenly, and makes for easy serving. First sear all the pieces on both sides to brown and remove, then saute your onion-garlic, then return the meat, add some potatoes-carrots, a little tomato sauce, season (I like Penzeys adobo for braised pork), a few big glugs of beer for liquid, cover, and set on a low simmer, two hours should do it. I'd add a lot of green bell pepper chunks too. If you don't want the potatoes omit them and serve on a bed of rice, yellow rice and beans is nice. Or you can go dago... add a couple cans crushed tomatoes, some 'talian seasoning, plenty garlic, some red pepper flakes, and a big pinch fennel seeds... then serve on pasta... make enough sauce to freeze for next time.
Why don't you donate that crockpot to the salvation army outlet store, along with your electric knife, both are equally useless... at least the electric knife is good for slicing styrofoam for crafts.
