Surely, not all of us are skilled in the kitchen, especially when we learn how to cook- we happen to burn many pots and frying pans. More than likely, you remember when you were a studen and you couldn’t make an omelet without burning the pan. No doubt you’ve thrown a few of them away cause you thought you couldn’t save them. Well, there’s a very simple method to clean a burnt pot in less than 10 minutes.
Even if we’re not students anymore, we can still burn a pot or a frying pan because we are busy doing other things. Thus, we leave the pot or pan on the stove and try to solve other things, until the food is ready. Moreover, we often forget to check the pot and it ends up burn. You found yourself in the above situations, didn’t you? If the answer is affirmative, read on to learn how to clean a burnt pot, simple and fast.
How to clean a burnt pot. With vinegar
To clean a burnt pot, you need water and vinegar. Thus, put a composition consisting of one part vinegar and one part water in the pot (enough to cover entirely or even exceed the burn). Let the saucepan be firm with that composition for 10-15 minutes or until you notice that the burn will come off when mixed with a wooden spoon. After you have boiled vinegar and water, you will see that more than 90% of the traces on the pot have disappeared, and the remaining ones will be able to be easily removed, using an ordinary dish sponge, along with a dishwashing detergent. You can use this trick for any kind of pot, but the best results you’ll notice with stainless steel pots.
One very important thing to keep in mind is that it is advisable to ventilate the kitchen, as long as the composition boils because vinegar vapours can be irritants for the airways.
How to clean a burnt pot. With lemons
The second method is just as simpe as the first one. You have to cut two lemons and boil them for a few minutes. After the composition has cooled down, clean the pot with a sponge or a brush. You’ll see that any burn mark will disappear. Details, in the video below.
