Removing stubborn burnt food
To easily remove burnt or scorched food from your skillet, follow the steps below.
1. Fill the skillet 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 skillet.
3. Remove the burnt residue with a wooden spatula and turn off the heat.
4. Once cooled, drain and gently scrub the skillet with mild dish soap and a soft sponge, repeating as necessary until clean.
Not preheating the skillet 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 skillet. 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 skillet subsequently, lightly wash the skillet 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 skillet harder to clean.
