DRYER-SHEETS-How to Clean Burnt Food from a Saucepan | Cleaning Guides

Donna asked: How can I clean a saucepan with burnt milk and cheese? I made macaroni and cheese and it burnt onto the inside of my Farberware saucepan. It’s been soaking for two days and has not loosened. Thanks for any help you can give. It’s a good pan, and I hope not to throw it away.

When food burns to the bottom of the pan, you could have a real cleaning challenge. Of course, try to salvage the food first and then use one of these methods to remove the burnt remains.

Steps to Remove the Burnt On Food:

  1. Place the bottom of the pan in cold water immediately to stop the cooking/burning.

  3. Add a good amount of salt to the water.
  4. Allow the burnt on residue to soak in the salt water for an hour.
  5. Use a plastic or wooden scraper to remove as much of the loosened food as possible.
  6. If the burnt-on residue is not coming loose, bring the water to a boil.
  7. Turn off the heat and allow the pan to soak with the saltwater in it for an additional 12 hours.
