clean the heating element of your crock pot?
I have 2 crock pots and they have been getting a work out this weekend since we're using them to cook down our salsa.
Now here's my issue. I didn't know that one of the pots had several hair-lined cracks in it before use and now there's a bunch of charcoal, baked in junk in the heating element of my crock pot! How do you clean that? I want to keep that portion of the pot since my other pot will fit it.
