Removing stubborn burnt food
To easily remove burnt or scorched food from your pan, follow the steps below.
1. Fill the pan with about 2 cups of water.
2. Add 1 tablespoon of baking soda, and boil for about 20 minutes on medium heat.
Use 1 cup of water for the 20cm pan.
3. Remove the burnt residue with a wooden spatula and turn off the heat.
4. Once cooled, drain and gently scrub the pan with mild dish soap and a soft sponge, repeating as necessary until clean.
Not preheating the pan properly before cooking is a major cause for food to burn and stick. When preheating, be sure to give ample time for smoke to rise from the entire surface of the pan. For ingredients that are prone to sticking, like eggs or flour-based ingredients, turn off the heat once after the preheating process, let the smoke clear, then add the ingredients.
When cooking multiple servings or using the pan subsequently, lightly wash the pan or remove any food residue with a paper towel before moving on to next cooking steps. Burnt food residue is more likely to develop when cooking with food remains from past uses, making the pan harder to clean.
