My husband got me a sticky rice cooking pot and basket for my birthday last week. I made a batch of rice, which came out fine, except it picked up a funny flavor, I think from the finish on the basket. So I washed the basket inside and out...it still smells all chemical-y. Now I've got it coated with a baking soda paste inside and out...but when I went in there and sniffed it, I think the smell was even stronger now!
Any ideas how I can get this smell out of the basket? Or am I just gonna have to put up with funny-tasting rice until the finish wears off?
