Cleaning tips for a slow cooker

So... I made spare ribs in the slow cooker yesterday (which were amazing by the way). Now the problem i have is that the sauce burned and got stuck on the side of the pot and i cant get it clean. It basically 1cm thick burned sugar... I tried soaking it in hot water, drousing the burned part in Cif and leaving it overnight but nothing. I thought about trying vinegar but i dont want to ruin the enamel.

Any ideas? Thanks

Re: Cleaning tips for a slow cooker

You won't ruin the enamel with vinger but I doubt that it would remove burnt sugar anyways.. Not easily although the acid will get there eventually.

I'd guess that mechanical removal is the most efficient way..

Would enamel survive the 500 degrees in a self cleaning oven? I sometimes put my BBQ grills and utensils in the oven and it cleans them up brilliantly.

Re: Cleaning tips for a slow cooker

Have you tried slow cooking the whole thing with some baking soda and water? Give it a bit of agitation every now and then and it should come off.

I've no experience with slow cookers, but most stuck on stuff comes off with a mix of heat, moisture and some chemical assistance.

Re: Cleaning tips for a slow cooker

Don't just soak it in hot water, but put water in the pan (with a little of dish-washing liquid or vinegar? - I am not sure why would it help) and than simmer as long as needed. It should be easy in slow cooker.
That's how I clean my stainless still pots.

That will be my next step. Thank you very much!

Edit: It did work! Thank you
