    Beast,[p]I do every now and then when I think about it...I use a fine scotch brite pad or steel wool and just knock off the outside layer of crud. [p]JD

  • Beast,
    If it's got gunk on it, you'll know it. It doesn't work more or less ..anyway ..good idea to just reach in there once in a while and clean it off but when it's cold preferably. [p]
