Burnt pans

Post by BookReader+6 » 03 Oct 2018, 10:23

What is the best way to clean a burnt baking pan? I don't want to use Brillo pads because the pan gets rusty.

The best way to clean a burnt pan is not to burn it. :roll: You could just throw it away. I usually just clean it with a scrubby - I don't understand why a brillo pad would cause rust. Just rinse off the soap really well.

I love your first suggestion! Unfortunately it's too late for that one! I'll try using a scrubbie the next time, and I'm sure there will be a next time. Thanks for your help!

You are very welcome. Oh I forgot the one I use the most... Soak in hot soapy water for a few days...or hours :) It helps loosen up the burnt stuff.

That's what I tried and it didn't work-the stuff was really stuck on. I tried the scrubbie yesterday after burning cookies and it did help!

Sprinkle the pan with baking soda then spray on some vinegar. Rinse and repeat until the burnt bits are loose enough to scrub off. You can also try boiling a mixture of water and vinegar in the pan to help loosen it.

Thanks for your suggestion, that sounds like an interesting concoction! I'll give that a try-
