Tip of the Day: Removing Burnt Food from a Saute Pan

It happens to even the best of us.  We walk away from the stove or forget something’s in the oven and the next thing you know, dinner’s one big charcoaled mess!  As for what to eat for dinner, you’re on your own.  Cleaning, the pan?  I’ve got some tips and tricks for that.

  • If you’re patient and don’t need the pan until tomorrow, douse a thick layer of baking soda all around the pan, then drizzle with just a little bit of water (almost like making it into a paste) and then let the baking soda work it’s magic overnight.
  • If you need the pan right away, dribble a couple of drops of dishwashing liquid into the pan, add hot water to cover the bottom, then place the pan on the stove over medium heat.  Bring it to a boil and let it “cook” for about 5 minutes.  Remove from heat and try the scrubbing process again.

Good Luck!

    Ooh, can I give you another tip that sometimes helps? Dissolve a tablet of clothes washing powder in your pot / pan, leave to soak for as long as you like, then rinse well and wash as usual. That can work very well …although I’ve today been bemoaning the poor state of my roasting and baking tins, so I’m not much of an advertisement for my own advice!
    Nice site BTW. 🙂
