Nothing is more annoying than a caked or burnt pan. Some dishes have a tendency to wreak havoc in our pots and pans. But it is also possible that you have heated your pan too hard. Anyway: we all know the problem, but can you prevent or solve it? Yes! For example, look at the current pan you have. Does it have a good non-stick coating? Or does your pan have no non-stick coating at all? Maybe just buy it because of the convenience it gives you! This is often overlooked while this is the main reason for caking. Companies often use only a few light nonstick coatings because it is cheap. We will come back to this later, let's first see how to clean your caked cooking pan!

Cleaning a burnt pan:

There are several ways to clean a burnt frying pan. Many are extremely time consuming and do not always work as desired. We have tried several methods and are most satisfied with the following solution.

The Aluminum Method in a Stainless Steel Pan

Cover the burnt area with 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda and add a little water to create a mixture. Crumple up some aluminum foil and scrub the pan around until all food residue and stains are clean. Rinse the pan with warm soapy water.

How it works: This method takes little time and requires a minimum of effort. Yes, you're going to "scrub" the caked-on stainless steel pan, but you don't have to put in as much effort as you would with a scouring pad. Just rub the aluminum foil in circles or back and forth - whatever works best for you. You may have to repeat the process as the baking soda/baking soda gets very dirty and makes it hard to see the areas that need attention, but this is by far the best and easiest method to clean a scorched or burnt stainless steel pan. to make.

Tip: It's a great way to put any extra piece of foil to good use. Say you used some foil to cover a casserole dish while you were baking something in the oven. Instead of throwing that foil away immediately, you can recycle it, make it into a ball and save it for this cleaning method!

No more caked pans:

Don't you have a stainless steel pan? But, for example, an aluminum frying pan with a non-stick coating? Then you would think that this one cannot burn. Unfortunately this is not always the case. You should see a non-stick coating as a coating that can be applied to your pan. The more layers you have, the less the pan can burn. Companies prefer to use as few anti-stick coatings as possible because this is quite expensive.

We ourselves are huge cooking enthusiasts and understand that there is nothing more annoying than cleaning a burnt pan . We attach great importance to efficient cooking, but also to cooking with pleasure. In our opinion, a job such as cleaning burnt food is not part of that.
