Burnt pan? Scratching doesn’t help, here’s a tip to easily remove stuck-on residue

Kitchen pet peeve is cleaning up burnt pots and pans. And that’s understandable, because the task is particularly laborious.

So much so that some are even thinking about replacing these old cooking utensils with new models. Except that the problem will repeat itself at some point.

To avoid incidents, it is better to take the bull by the horns and solve the problem at the source.

First of all, it is important to wash them thoroughly after each use. Burnt residue only accumulates over time, making cleaning more laborious. Without forgetting that these utensils are used to cook food: therefore, to protect your health, they must be cleaned of any dirt.

To make your job easier, we will tell you a series of home tips: quick and easy methods to get rid of the problem of burns. This will give your pans and pots a clean and healthy look again!

Two tips for cleaning a burnt pan
Many people who have a burnt pan decide that it is better to throw it away. It would be a waste! Why spend money when you can easily fix the problem with inexpensive ingredients you probably already have at home?

For example, did you know that ketchup can do the trick? It’s surprising, but this tip has proven to work.

Thanks to its vinegar content, which contains acetic acid, this sauce effectively removes burnt residue that sticks to pans.

What’s next? Grease the utensil with a thick layer of ketchup and let it rest for about half an hour. After this time, all you have to do is scrape off the remaining residue with a wooden spatula. Then scrub with a dishwashing sponge soaked in detergent, rinse well and you’re done. Your pan is now free of any dirt!

Another little-known tip for saving a burnt pan? A simple soda (like Coca Cola) can breathe new life into your utensil. Again, the idea may seem crazy, but if you try it, you will be surprised by the result.

What’s next? Pour soda into the bottom of the pan (to a depth of 1 cm). Then heat it for a few minutes (over low heat) and wait until it cools down. Then rub gently with a sponge to remove any loose residue. Then wash as usual. The pan shines again!
