However, from time to time, cleaning your slow cooker might be a challenge. Thus, keep reading this article and see a smart 3-step method to clean the inside of your slow cooker.
Considering that my crockpot is not that old but looks that dirty is because of me enjoying it. Then, I realized I need to apply a more severe approach to cleaning it. I’ve never truly cleaned the inside of my slow cooker before. it is one of that cookware that is just easily cleaned with dishwashing detergent only. Thus, I figured it was time to try a more heavy cleaning.
One of my cleaning techniques consists of using baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and ammonia. And just like that, I got the perfect cleaning recipe in my kitchen!
Here are the steps you need to follow:
1. Start by filling a small bowl with ammonia and placing it in the bottom of your slow cooker (without the crock liner.)
2. Place the lid on and walk away! That’s right. Let it act for a few hours or if you can, let it overnight.
3. Then, the next day, pour out all the ammonia and use a paste of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda to scrub the remaining spots of dirt.
After these three simple steps of cleaning, your slow cooker will really look practically brand new, inside and out. It is truly incredible what just a few little ingredients can do!
