Burnt-on grease is a common problem when cooking, and your non-stick pans can end up with thick residue that is difficult to remove. While you may be able to scrub certain pans with a scouring pad or similar items, harsh tools can scratch off the finish of the non-stick surface. Instead, use something that removes the burnt-on grease without any scrubbing or harsh tools.

Things You'll Need

  • White vinegar
  • Cleaning rags
  • Dish soap

Video of the Day

Fill the pan with white vinegar. Make sure the vinegar covers all burnt-on grease residue.

Turn a stove burner on high and bring the vinegar to a boil.

Let the vinegar boil for about five minutes. Notice the burnt residue will cook off the pan.

Turn off the burner, let the pan cool and scrub it with a cleaning rag soaked in warm, soapy water.

Rinse the pan and dry with a clean rag.
