I am still trying to get used to cooking on an electric stove – it has been many, many years since I have. Trying to figure out the temperature settings on each burner is the tricky part. There is my big stock pot, that no matter what I do I end up burning part of the bottom, ugh. I am thinking I need to invest in another stock pot with a very thick bottom. After scrubbing it after each and every time I used it – I thought there has to be an easier way – and there is!
How To Clean A Burned Pot
1 cup Vinegar
2 Tbl +Baking Soda
Brillo type pad
1. Get as much of the burnt part out of the pan.
2. With water, enough to cover the bottom add 1 cup of vinegar.
3. Place the pot on a burner and bring to a boil – you will see the pan start to clean itself.
4. Take the pot off the burner and add 2 Tbl of baking soda – it will fizz.
5. Empty the pot and scour as normal – you may add some dry baking soda to help with the scouring.
6. If you have an exceptionally burned pot, like I did, make a past with baking soda and water and cover the burned spots with the paste. Let it sit for awhile.
7. Scrub the burned spots with a brillo type sponge and the paste. Wash and rinse. Clean pot!
