STEP 1: REMOVING BURNED FOOD

  1. PREP. Place dirty pot or pan on the stove and pour a shallow layer of water over the burned food in the pan.
  2. BAKING SODA & SIMMER. Turn stove onto medium-high until water begins to simmer then sprinkle with baking soda – let simmer for 1 minute.
  3. SCRAPE. Gently scrape the food off of the pan using a wooden or plastic spatula – don’t use metal, you could ruin your pan.
  4. RINSE. Carefully rinse the pan in warm water and set it aside to cool completely before the next step.

STEP 2: REMOVING FOOD STAINS

Buildup reduces the performance of a pan’s non-stick surface…let’s get rid of it!

  1. PREP. Dampen the pan with water and set aside.
  2. MIX. In a bowl mix together 3 parts baking soda with 1 part water to make a paste. (I used a tablespoon as my “part”.)
  3. SCRUB. Use a soft towel or sponge to scrub the grime and stains with the baking soda paste – for stubborn stains, add some coarse salt and continue to scrub the pan until it’s stain-free.
  4. WASH in warm soapy water and you’re done!

That’s all there is to it!
