Cleaning Burnt Pans

Cleaning Burnt Pans

Written by 

Have you ever burnt food onto a pan? Don’t worry, you don’t have to admit it out loud! It can be extremely difficult to get a burnt pan clean. You can soak and scrub for a long time before it comes clean, trying repeatedly during your house cleaning, and still have a burnt-on pan. 

You can cut that time in half with just a few at home ingredients and a little bit of heat. The next time you have a pan with burnt-on food, try this:

Getting Stuck-On Food Off

Step #1: Add a layer of water to the bottom of a pan—just enough to coat the bottom.

Step #2: Add a cup of vinegar to the mixture and bring to a boil.

Step #3: Once the mixture comes to a boil, pull it off of the heat and add 2 tablespoons of baking soda.

Step #4: Allow the mixture to fizz, then empty the pan.

Step #5: Grab your scouring pad and scrub a little bit until it’s clean.

You will be amazed at how little scrubbing it takes to get the pan clean compared to normal scrubbing.

This works because the vinegar and baking soda work to loosen the stuck on food and dissolve it away, making it easier to scrub off once you start.

A really stubborn spot might take a little extra care, and the solution is to make a water and baking soda paste as you would when cleaning an oven. Apply the paste to the area and let sit for an hour or two, then come back and wash clean. The baking soda will help pull the food off of the pan!
