I have done the same with chain rings, by putting them in a pie pan, using the boiling water, and they come out pretty darn clean. My drive-train is ready to go, long before the chain is done cooking.
Once your drive train is ''wax ready'', hot water should suffice to clean it completely. It's always a good thing to remove your cassette every once in a while (I do it 1x per year) to perform an in depth cleaning. Otherwise, I clean it using a brush & hot water.

On another note, I still haven't received my PTFE ordered on amazon on January 22,'s crazy!
