How To Clean A Slow Cooker, In 5 Easy Steps

Once the cool weather hits, it’s time to break out the slow cooker (also known as a crock pot). And while using it makes fixing a hot meal a breeze, cleaning it is a real chore. Luckily, we found a foolproof way to get it clean in five easy steps, courtesy of lifeshouldcostless.com.

1. Before you start to clean it, make sure the slow cooker is off and unplugged. If it needs time to cool off after use.

2. Once the slow cooker is cool, rinse it out then fill it with water. Be sure the water fills all of the dirty, caked-on spots.

3. Add about one-cup of distilled white vinegar for a six-quart cooker, or one-half cup for a three-quart one.

4. A spoonful or so at a time, slowly add about a cup of baking soda for a six quart, or one-half cup for a three quart. The baking soda will bubble as you place it in the water, so put a bit in and once the bubbling stops, then add in a bit more. Keep adding in this way until the full amount has been put in.

5. When done, turn your slow cooker on the low setting, cover and set a timer for an hour. When the hour is up, take a kitchen scrub brush and gently scrub the entire inside of the slow cooker.
