    I recently cooked a pork roast in my crock pot using BBQ sauce. Well, I must have let it cook too long because the bbq sauce is now part of the bottom of the crock pot. I don't know how to get it to come clean. I have soaked it for days, I have chipped at it with a butter knife, I have boiled it, nothing is removing it. Do any of you have a suggesting for removing the baked on bbq sauce?

    Since it seems to be ruined, I'd fill it with water, cover it, put it in a corner of the garage and forget about it. I'd check it again come September or October. If it softens I'd finish cleaning it and be happy to have a 2nd pot, because by then I would have replaced it.

    i cleaned burnt food off my stainless steel skillet by soaking with CLR. worked like a charm. you might try that.
    some say baking soda works though.

    I use the scrap pads that come with my pampered chef stoneware. I've seen similar scraping pads in Walmart or Meijer. Here are the pampered chef ones for reference: http://www.pamperedchef.com/ordering...&outletSubCat=

    They are designed to scrap the food off the stoneware since you're not supposed to use soap in stoneware. I've used them on other bakeware, pots & pans, and even my iron skillet.

    I might put water with baking soda in the crock pot and turn it on over night. This should soften the cooked on material.

    Leave it out in the sun for a few days, I've had success doing that, it seems to dry it out and the gunk lifts off. Good luck, hope you don't have to trash it!!

    I would try soaking it with dishwasher soap.

    Then once you get it clean, use the crock pot lining bags, you can find them by ziploc storage bags. They are sooo worth it!
