Oh. My. Cod. Would you just look at this mess?!
This is what happens when your mommeh is halping you make shmarshmallows and she starts washing dishes instead of watching the pots of boiling sugars.
Yes. Two pots, two burners, two boiled-over disasters.
About a quarter inch thick.
And look what happened to this poor burner, it is so clogged up wif burnted sugars that it won't even turn on.
So let the cleaning begin. First we scraped off as much as we could wif a spoon. The sugar around that top burner was burnted brown and rock-hard.
Then we spented two hours boiling up waters, carefully pouring it over the yuck, allowing it to melt what it could, then mopping it up, and repeating that process. Finally we gotted it as clean as possible.
Then my mommeh wented to Walmart and gotted these thingies, for only $1.97 each. They obviously will not fix the problem if it ever happens again, but I finks it will halp a little. At least it is removable and can be dropped in teh sink to soak.
Audrey, come see!
Yes, mommeh, this definitely looks better. Unfortunately that blackened front burner may be lost. We tried our bestest to get it all scraped out, but it must be verreh clogged inside. And now it looks so icky, but it just will not come any cleaner, so I am trying to talk my mommeh into buying burner covers... wif kittehs on them!
