Apparently boiling eggs, making ramen or spice mixes for masala tea in an electric kettle is ok..
But, using an electric kettle to the heat milk for custard is ill advised..OOps
Getting out the burned milk can be an issue…. soaking was no help, scrubbing more of the same… arcane concoctions of baking soda and dish soap did no good at all…
The advice of on-line cleaning “experts” was also ineffective and even more annoying.
However… the battle was finally won by oven cleaner since its made for carbon build up, and is pretty much standard equipment for… cleaning ovens.
I just got tired of messing around.. getting the burned milk out took a 5 second spray and 5 minute rest followed by a rinse.. it’s the same thing I do to de-crust cast iron pots and what-not that get used over a wood fire..
I just didn’t want to go to the dollar store… but I have a few uses for the stuff including cleaning an oven or two that are ready to be put to use once summer loosens its grip and I can use gas without suffocation..heat stroke or paying for even more electricity to cool down the house as I run an oven..
That being said…. Tip one, don’t. Tip two, just use oven cleaner and call it good..
