Baked-on gunk ruining your pans?

Ever have trouble with baked on food? I have. A lot. And I generally just scrub and scrub and it comes off. However, there have been a few times that this technique got me nowhere. I did some research online in a desperate attempt to clean my pyrex.

You will only need a few basil supplies to save your pans:

  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • Water
  • A stove
  • A metal whisk
  • Scouring pad

I found out that you can pour a layer of baking soda into the almost-ruined pan and then fill the pan ¾ of the way up with warm water. Place the pan on the stove and turn the burner to low. Simmer the liquid for about 15 minutes and about every 2 minutes use a metal whisk to scrape the burnt-on pieces from the bottom of the pan.

When it looks like you have most of the burnt-on stuff removed, pour the water out and add a little vinegar to the pan. Use a scouring pad to scrub the last few pieces off. Rinse with water and clean as usual.
