How to Clean a Burned Non Stick Pan

Page history last edited by steve rogers 2 years, 9 months ago

You may have gone through all the trouble of finding the perfect non stick pan, only to find that it does not work. Whether it is because it was not meant to be used with such foods or you did not dry it completely, it may take a bit of effort on your part to get your non stick pan working again. If you are in this situation, you will need to read this article. You will learn how to clean burnt non stick pan properly.

 

First of all, you should make sure that the burnt non stick pan has completely cooled off. In general, you should set your oven to the correct setting before you begin cleaning. The temperature needs to be lower than when you placed the pan in the oven for a few minutes. Once you have done this, remove the pan and place it on a cookie sheet to cool off.

 

Take the pan and wash it using any type of baking soda. Do not use regular dish washing detergent. You may find some of them work better but remember that the baking soda will absorb anything that you put in it, so it is not a good thing to use on this type of surface. Simply spray it with any type of cleaner and leave it to soak.

 

Once you have washed it, scrub it gently with any type of metal scouring pad or brush. If the soda has dissolved it is time to rinse it off. Use a spatula to completely remove the excess soda from your pan.

 

Once you have rinsed off the baking soda, you need to start the cleaning process. If the pan has baked on there for an extended period of time, you will need to add some more baking soda to the water to make it lighter. Then, gently scrub the area using a clean sponge or cotton cloth. Be very careful as you do this as a burned area can be quite dangerous.

 

It is imperative to always wear gloves when handling any type of surface, including pans. If you do not, your hands can become very sweaty and it can take all the air out of your lungs. The area that you are about to clean can become very hot and you must protect yourself by wearing glass or plastic gloves. If you have never cleaned a non stick pan before, you will find it extremely difficult to clean the area after removing the baked on food. In addition to the heat, there could be some residue left on the pan that can burn you.

 

There is one simple remedy for how to clean a burnt non stick pan that does not require any hazardous chemicals or equipment. You only need some vinegar and water. Mix together two tablespoons of vinegar with half a cup of water. Scrape any residue from the pan using a scrub brush. Once it is rinsed, spray it with any cooking oil that you wish to use and leave it to dry.

 

If you do not have baking soda, vinegar or water, you may want to consider sprinkling some corn starch on the pan to act as an agent to remove food stuck on the pan. You would need to soak the pan in warm water and let it sit overnight. The next day, remove the baking soda and place it in your dishwasher to be cleaned later.

 

When learning how to clean a burnt non stick pan, it is important that you wear protective gloves prior to attempting to do so. Not only is it possible for some chemicals on the pan to irritate your skin, but they can also be toxic. Gloves will prevent you from coming into contact with these toxins. In addition, keep your eyes out of the way because fumes from the acidic solutions can be nauseous.

 

If you do not want to go the chemically oriented route when learning how to clean a burnt non stick pan, you might want to try a few home remedies. For instance, try mixing a tablespoon of baking soda with some hot water. The resulting paste should have a neutral pH, which should aid in removing some of the stuck on food. It can act as a scrub by creating a thin film on the surface. Be careful though, because the acid in the soda can cause some damage if applied to the body too often. Once you've tried this remedy several times, you may find that the baked soda scrub isn't actually helpful at all.

 

As you can see, learning how to clean a burnt non stick pan isn't as simple as grabbing the nearest kitchen utensil and kicking it in the pan. You do need to take precautions and protect yourself, so purchasing a good pan is a good idea. Once you've found the right pan, you can then begin to learn how to clean non stick pans using safe techniques. It is likely that you will come across many tricks and tips along the way, which will help you to become more efficient. Just keep at it and you'll soon be able to clean a pan no matter how burnt it is.
