My poor boyfriend. He thought he was helping when he pulled the insert from my slow cooker, the one that was soaking with soap, from the sink to wash. Unfortunately for him the reason it was soaking to remove dried/cooked on remnants. He then left it on the counter to dry. Imagine my disappointment to find he hadn't gotten everything off. So I set it back in the sink to soak again for me to wash out later after I got home from my second job. And what do I see when I get home? The insert dried on the counter, still with the remants stuck on it. So after showing it to my boyfriend, and under pain of death if it removed from the sink again, I put it back into the sink. And it was finally left to soak overnight, and I was able to clean it off yesterday.
