My deep fat fryer is one of my most beloved possessions. It has graced me many a time with the comfort of egg rolls, fritters, and other foods I probably shouldn't like so much.
Sadly, my little friend is a royal pain to clean up. Although most of the cleaning goes alright there are always sticky glue-like globs of fat/oil/??? stuck to the heating element, basket, and pan. They never come off; you just spread them out by scrubbing, covering whatever utensil you're using in the process. I've ruined several packages of sponges like this.
Does anyone have any idea how I can clean this stuff off? -Laury
