Most Effective Method For Cleaning Burnt Stainless Steel Cookware
Today, I burned one of my older Kitchen-Aid stainless steel pots. I went off to eat and left my soup still cooking. I came back to find burnt soup stuck to the bottom of my pot, I wasn’t very happy. I went through my pantry trying to think of the best cleaning agent. I was searching for something that most people would have in the house. What I came up with is truly the best and most effective way to quickly clean burnt stainless steel. My method for cleanup is detailed below.
First you have to make a huge mistake like I did and burn your stainless steel pot. Caution: I don’t recommend doing this for fun!
So this is what you end up with.
Grab a box of baking soda and a container of salt. That’s it folks!
Run some water in the pot just enough to cover the burned area about a 1/4 inch.
Dump generous amount of salt into pan making it cloudy and then dump about the same amount of baking soda. Water should be pretty cloudy.
Stir the solution with wooden spoon and bring to a boil.
As it is boiling and fizzing keep stirring with wooden spoon while scrapping the bottom.
Strain mixture in a strainer so you don’t get a lot of burned material in your drain.
You will then end up with a pan that looks like this depending on how badly burned it is and how much scrapping you performed.
Take green scour pad and hot water and scrub remaining burned material out. This comes out easily once you have used salt and baking soda.
The finished product.
Total cleaning time: 5 min tops.
