how do you clean the broiler pan?!
I have been using the broiler a lot more lately, but it is really a pain to clean. I have a gas range with the broiler being the in the bottom drawer... oven is not self cleaning. The stuff gets burned on and is very difficult to remove. It will not fit in the dishwasher, and srubbing it is too tedious.
A neighbor told me to cover it with foil, but I think that defeats the purpose. I think a broiler should have the holes exposed so the juices/fats can drip down... I thought that was part of the point of using the thing!I guess I could cover the "basin" part of it in foil and leave the grate part exposed.
I made a steak 4 days ago and the burned mess has been soaking in a tub of oxiclean ever since... I chip away at it a little more each day, but there has GOT to be a better way!
I guess I could spray Easy Off on it, but I hate to do that every time I use it.
I'm afraid that that if it doesn't become easier to clean I am going to stop using it altogether just like I have my juicer.
Any tips/hints? Thanks :o)
