How Do I Clean A Burnt Pot?

Cooking is great – you can make sure your dish is as well-done as you like and use just the right amount of sauce – but cleaning up afterwards isn’t nearly as great, especially when you leave your food cooking for a bit too long and leave your pan a burned mess. While you may have ruined your meal, you haven’t necessarily ruined your pot or pan. With these quick tips, you should be able to clean off the burned mess at the bottom and prepare for your next cooking attempt.

Before you start your clean, make sure that you have all the necessary supplies:

  • Scouring pad
  • Water
  • 2 tablespoons of baking soda
  • 1 cup of vinegar

Step 1

Fill your pot or pan with just enough water to fill the bottom. In most cases, about a cup’s worth will do.

Step 2

Add the cup of vinegar to the water, place on the stove, and bring your mixture to a boil. You should already be able to see some improvements.

Step 3

Turn off the stove and move the pot or pan closer to the sink in preparation for the baking soda. Once you add it in, expect it to fizz up a bit so be careful not to make a mess.

Step 4

Empty out the pan and use the scouring pad to scrub off any remaining burnt material. If there are still any spots left, just mix some baking soda with a few drops of water to make a paste, leave it on the problem areas and let it sit for a while. When you come back, pop the pot or pan back in the sink and roll up your sleeves for another round of scrubbing.

Cleaning up after a mess might not be fun, but it’s an important part of keeping your home and kitchen clean. While cleaning a pan should only up take a few minutes of your day, cleaning the rest of your house will take quite a bit longer.
