1- I burned a pot roast, and filled the house with smoke how do I get rid of it? The best way I know because I cook a lot, and it’s happened to me is air it out. I know there’s a few products, like Oust, which is for odors, not so much Lysol.
2- Can you put frozen meat in a crock pot? I’ve done it before, but keep in mind the amount of liquid, after defrosting, and when it’s actually cooking can cause a liquid overflow. And when that happens, the liquid will seep in between the ceramic pot itself & the cooking pot. And if theirs a lot of fat coming off the meat itself. Get ready for a smoke filled house, and not to mention your counter tops are a mess!
3- How much liquid should I put, in a crock pot? I just put in just under half the pot itself. Reason being: Depending on the size of your meats, and or chickens, and not to mention the vegetables that you put in, and also not to mention the moisture that comes off the lid itself internally, and the juices themselves coming off the meats. It can turn out to be a lot. And imagine over a 8+hr period.
4- Can a crock pot insert be heated on a stove? Definitely not. DO NOT TRY! I’m not saying, its not possible. But the one thing I do know about the insert itself it can crack under extreme temperatures. Also don’t put it in the frig, once again there’s always the possibility that it can crack, because the insert itself is porous.
5- How do I get rid of mineral deposits on my crock pot (ceramic insert)? To remove mineral stains on the pot itself, fill cooker with hot water and 1 cup white vinegar; cover. Turn heat control to high for 2 hours. Then clean following directions above without soaking the pot for 15 minute.
