How to Remove Stains From Scanpan Cookware


As with other pots, pans and skillets, Scanpan Cookware can be stained over time during the cooking process. Food sticks to the bottom of the cookware, often leaving a hideous stain that might seem impossible to remove, at first. The stains, however, can be removed with a quick, easy cleaning routine that can keep your cookware looking brand new.

Things You'll Need

  • Dish detergent
  • Nylon scouring pad
  • White vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Non-abrasive cloth

Step 1

Wash your cookware with hot water and dish detergent. Place the cookware in the sink with 1 gallon of hot water and squirt of dish detergent, then scrub with a nylon scouring pad. The nylon material will scrub efficiently without scratching the surface.

Step 2

Rinse the cookware with hot water, then place it on the stove.

Step 3

Pour water and vinegar into the cookware, using 1 part vinegar to 3 parts water. Use enough liquid to submerge the entire stain.

Step 4

Turn the burner to high heat until the water comes to a boil. Let it boil for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow the water to cool until it is room temperature.

Step 5

Discard most of the water, leaving a small amount to help the cleaning process, and scrub the stained area once more with a nylon scouring pad. Rinse the cookware thoroughly.

Step 6

Remove any remaining stains, such as discoloration caused by heat, by making a paste from a tablespoon or two of baking soda mixed with just enough water to reach a paste-like consistency. Dip a damp non-abrasive cloth into the paste and scrub the affected areas with a circular motion.
