In many cases, this “trick” is also useful for cleaning burnt pots or pans made of materials such as aluminum, cast iron or ceramic coatings. You need simple materials such as:

- a moderately abrasive sponge
- your pot burnt steel
- 1. Fill the bottom of your pot with the cup of water.
- 2. Place the pot on a low flame burner.
- 3. Add the vinegar.
- 4. Bring the water to a boil.
- 5. Remove thepan burnedfrom the heat and add the baking soda. You will seefizzthe boiling mixture.

Clean an encrusted and burnt steel pot with coke (recommended method!)
Another rnatural remedy for cleaning a burnt steel pot and encrusted, even if the encrustations are very dated, requires the use of ....Coca Cola!
Yes, coca-cola has propertiesdisconcerting!
In the title I have included, in brackets, "recommended method".
This is because I was able to experiment with the use of coca cola to clean older deposits. Believing that the sugar in coke could worsen the situation of a pot dear to me, I experienced thisremedy for burnt panson an old steel saucepan that I no longer used due to its condition. The result convinced me to use coca cola as a first choice for cleaning the most stubborn encrustations!
Warning! I've only tested this method on steel pots and pans, so they can't pronounce on pans with non-stick bottoms or special coatings. I think it can also be valid forceramic or earthenware potswith burnt bottom but I don't use these materials much so I can't say for sure.
What does it take to recover a burnt steel pan or pot rich in encrustations?
- Coca Cola
- Stiff bristle brush
To make the operation easier, I recommend using a long-handled brush for the pots and a brush with a low handle for the pans. Here's how to proceed:
- Turn on the stove over low heat.
- Place the pot on the fire by adding a glass of coke (only the encrustations will have to be just covered by the coke, so "one glass" is only indicative, small pots will need half a glass as well as larger pans will need more Coca Cola).
- Brush vigorously for about 90 seconds and turn off the stove. Continue to brush and remove the cola. At this point the pot should already be clean.
- If this first treatment was not enough, repeat the entire procedure pushing yourself to brushing times of 120 seconds. At the second treatment, even the most stubborn encrustations and burns will disappear.
Warning! Follow the steps carefully to get the desired results.
Retrieve a burnt stainless steel pan with caustic soda
This remedy is NOT recommended! The instructions seen above are more than valid, especially the remedy which involves the use of coca cola which you can also experiment with burnt pots and pansinceramic.
Caustic soda is a dangerous and extremely corrosive substance. To be clear, caustic soda is the substance you use when a pipe clogs and your sink is blocked: with its corrosive power it dissolves organic matter with extreme ease. It is also corrosive with metals, so its use is only allowed if it is 100% stainless steel cookware.
Cleaning the burnt steel pot, grandmother's remedies
Who has never appreciated grandma's ancient remedies? Well, if you haven't done it yet ... it's time to change your mind. In the absence of many chemical detergents and ... coke, our grandmothers used to clean the burnt pots and pans with leftover coffee. This grandmother's remedy is especially recommended if there were meats or fatty foods in the pot. All useful information is contained in the article dedicated to the use of advanced coffee.
When the kitchen surface is burned
The sauce that gushes out of the pot and devastates the kitchen is a terrifying experience for everyone, but those who don't notice what has happened and let the food heat up further until it becomes stratified ... will really have to work hard to clean everything.
Unfortunately on stoves, burnt sinks or kitchen, it is not possible to use the trick of coca cola but you will be forced to use ad hoc products.
Among the proposals of the market I recommend a product already tested by me. You can use it forclean, descale and polish practically for everything: oven, grills, pots with burnt bottom, barbecue, sink, burnt cast iron plates, hob, rusty steel components, sinks in fragranite ...
The only concern, when you use this product forcleaning of pots or other objects that will come into contact with food (sink, steel hob ...) it is important to rinse well over and over again.
It is true that I am recommending an ecological, biological and detergentbiodegradable(so it is not bad for the environment, because it deteriorates spontaneously in a short time) but it is important to follow hygiene rules! The product in question is called "Twister" is produced by Franke and is offered on Amazon at a price of 15.99 euros with shipping costs included. It is non-abrasive and easy to use. Just wet the supplied sponge with water and pass it over the materials to be cleaned.
For all the information on the ecological detergent mentioned, I refer you to the Amazon product sheet: Frake Paste for cleaning and polishing.
