How to clean stainless steel cookware

DATE: July 5, 2014


Stainless steel cookware is considered by many to be the best cookware on the market due to the fact that such cookware is durable and good looking. The only downside of stainless steel cookware is that it requires some serious cleaning in order to maintain its amazing qualities. If you have recently bought stainless steel cookware and you are worried that you won’t be able to maintain it because you have never cleaned such cookware before, have no worries and keep reading because we have some very helpful tips for you.

If your stainless steel cooking pan has food crusted onto it, soak it for several hours into soapy water. The soapy water will loosen the crusted food and will ease the cleaning of the pan. Drain the water from your cooking pan and start scrubbing the crusted food with a scouring pad. Don’t apply too much pressure because you may damage the stainless steel surface of your pan.

You can use baking soda to clean burn marks from your cookware. Before you sprinkle the baking soda onto the cookware that you are treating make sure that it is complete dry. Rub the baking soda around the cookware with the aid of a dry cloth or sponge. If the burn marks are too resilient you can add some water to the baking soda and create a paste-like consistency. Then thoroughly apply the paste over the cookware and allow it to sit for approximately 30 minutes. Continue by rubbing the paste until all burn marks are gone.

You can remove more serious burn marks by cooking them away. Simply fill your pan with just enough water to cover the damage and place your pan on the stove. Heat the water until it reaches its boiling point and then add a few spoonfuls of salt and turn off the stove. Allow the heat to cool down and dump the water into your sink. Now grab a scouring pad and try scrubbing the burn marks away. If necessary repeat the procedure.

The easiest way to remove water spots is to hand dry your cooking pans. On the other hand if your cooking pans are already stained with water spots, you can remove them by swishing some club soda on each pan. Then rinse off the club soda and hand dry each pan with a clean cloth. Once the water spots are gone, don’t allow them to reoccur by hand drying your stainless steel cookware after each washing.
