How to Clean Burnt Stainless Steel Pans

Burnt food or carbon buildup that is repeatedly heated up has the chance to turn into hard-to-clean burn marks that are more difficult to remove. Getting rid of burn marks on the inside and outside of a cooking pot requires a little more elbow grease. At JM Products, we have a great selection of detergents and cleaning supplies that will help make the job easier. But even with the best products at your disposal, there are still times when simply cleaning the pan is not enough to remove burnt food from your stainless-steel pans. Let's take a look at how to clean off burnt marks from stainless steel pans with more than just high-powered detergent.

Removing Burn Marks with Baking Soda

Baking soda works as a surprisingly effective cleaner of burn marks on a stainless-steel pan. When trying this method, you need to start by making sure the pan is completely dry. You can flip the pan over and sprinkle baking soda evenly over the bottom of the pan. Then, use a dry cloth to rub the baking soda into the burn marks. Adding a small amount of water to the baking soda makes a sort of paste, if that is something you prefer to use to apply it. Once you are satisfied with the burn mark, then you can finish by rinsing off any excess baking soda and dry off the pan.

Removing Burn Marks with Baking Soda & Dish Soap

If using just baking soda is not enough, you can supplement it with some gentle dish soap. Simply make a paste using the dish soap and the baking soda and apply it to any affected areas. Leave the paste on for several hours so it can effectively fight the burnt mark. When complete, you can thoroughly wash it and dry it as normal.

Removing Burnt Oil with Soda

A last resort and a surprising answer is soda. Using soda works great on sticky, stuck-on substances, like caramel, due to the acidic properties of soda. The first step of this process is to add cola. Pour enough soda into the pan to cover all of the burnt areas. Then, let the soda simmer. Bring the soda on the pan to a gentle simmer. Lastly, remove the heat. Once the pan is simmering, remove all of the heat from the pan and use a spatula to scrape away any burnt oil or other burnt substances.
