Now, here is my clean-up tip. Many times when using a slow cooker you get a rim of burnt food around the edges and sometimes on the bottom. I didn't want to stand and scrub the pot so I filled it with water, added some soap, put it back in the cooker on high. I let it 'cook' for an hour or so. Then I turned it off and let it cool before rinsing it out in the sink. Washing it this way took no time and was so much easier than scrubbing it.
When you are cooking or baking a lot, do you have any tips to make things easier?
