Recipe for Gray Soot and Terrible Smell
A recipe you don't want to try!
Take one plastic food container and place it on an electric burner to simmer for 15 hours or so.
This particular one did not cause massive flame damage but did cause a good bit of soot.
A good practice for everyone is not to set anything on the stove burners which isn't cookware and isn't being used right away.
And if you are visiting someone's home, for whatever reason, don't fool with the stove. If you have to check it for some reason, be sure it is off when you finish!
The biggest specialty of this recipe is an incredible bad smell which is extremely hard to get eliminate.
Lots a new painting happened afterwards.
