Quality stainless steel cookware is the best cookware any chef can use, but they are a bit expensive. Anyhow, it’s a long-term investment and the food cooked in them feels spoiled!
After I got married, I purchased an entire stainless steel cookware set, and each pot and pan looks great. The struggle comes when you burn the food in these pots, and it happens sometimes to achieve such goals (lol)! Any burnt grease can be removed if you scrub the area thoroughly, but it doesn’t work the same for stainless steel, because you may scratch the pot and remove its gloss. Not to mention that you have to use special stainless steel cleaners.
!!! Keep in mind that you can’t use any cleaner and avoid abrasive sponges and detergents.
How to get rid of burns and hardened fat from stainless steel cookware
- baking soda
- dish soap
Put the burnt stainless steel pot to soak in water with 2 tablespoons of baking soda for 30 minutes. Now, rinse the pot, and prepare a baking soda paste and apply it over the burnt stains. Rub the area gently the soft side of a dish sponge or leave the baking soda paste to act for 1-2 hours, and then remove it easily.
To maintain that specific stainless steel glow, after washing the cookware, use olive oil to oint the pot, and remove any excess using a paper towel.
