Cleaning Burnt Pots and Pans

I cook, he cleans up afterwards. But, he hates having to scour the sometimes burnt-on oil stuck on our stainless steel pots and pans. Lucky for me, there's a fabulous blog called Apartment Therapy that had these great instructions that really worked!

  • 1 cup of vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 1 cup of water (depending on the size of your pan)
  • a burnt stainless steel pan
  • a scourer
1. Fill the bottom of the pan with a layer of water.
2. Add the vinegar.
3. Bring the pan to the boil.
4. Remove the pan from the heat and add the baking soda - it will fizz!
5. Empty the pan and scour as normal; if necessary add an extra bit of dry baking soda.
6. If there are any super stubborn marks that don't come off with scouring, make a paste of baking soda and a couple of drops of water. Leave the paste on the marks for a while and return to clean as normal.
