I have a three-year-old Rival oval slow-cooker. I used it last night to make dinner and everything went smoothly (search mutterer's lentils and sausage on the boards, it was great) But after i cleaned and dried the crock the bottom 1/4 is cloudy. When I run my finger across it it doesn't move as smoothly as on the shiny part, there is more friction. Is it possibly that some of the glaze or another coating has come off?
I use it rarely, and always clean it with dish soap, never anything abrasive. Has anyone ever seen this before? Do you think it is safe to use? Thanks
