How to strip chrome from parts using Easy-Off Oven Cleaner

Q: I'm just getting back into building car and truck models.

I've been trying to find a way to strip chrome from parts, besides scraping. I've read that some use Easy-Off Oven Cleaner, but have not found any columns on how to do it.

Can you provide some insight, including what kind of surface to strip the parts on? Thank you.
