THE ROOST - How to do it
you've finished cooking and eating that delicious Drunk Chicken,
and you want to get your Roost ready for the next time, please
don't rub, don't scrape, don't scrub. Don't spend any more time
than it takes to place your Roost in a bath of hot water and
dish soap in the sink for about an hour, letting it soak to
loosen up stuff. Then rinse and wipe dry.
Or, let the dishwasher do it all! Your Roost is dishwasher safe!
