How to Clean Burnt Pots and Pans

Many of us have been into similar situations, such as when you cook risotto and it is almost done, then someone knocks at the door and until you go and open, the risotto already has burnt on the pan. The result is no cooked meal for the dinner and a huge mess to clean. What the worst thing is, when the scorched foods leave stains on pots and pans, that are hard to be removed. In this case no amount of elbow grease can be cleaned. Such situation leads housewives to hiring professional cleaning services for the whole environment of their kitchens. If you prefer to do the cleaning by yourself then read up the tips below, that you might find useful as well:

  1. First of all try to wash away as much food as possible from the pots, by using cold water for eggs, chocolate and starch-based foods.
  2. The step number two is to fill the pot with water. Add one or two tea spoons of dish- washing cleaner and put it on the stove to boil it. Leave it to simmer for ten- eleven minutes, and cover the pot and leave it to soak for another thirty minutes.
  3. Use a wooden spoon to scrape away the burnt food if possible, then rinse well.
  4. If yet there are burnt areas, cover them with a great amount of baking soda. Create a thick paste by adding water and smear the paste up the inside wall of the pot. Leave it for four hours minimum and even more.
  5. Add three parts water to just one part distilled vinegar to cover the burnt food by 5 cm minimum(do this without rinsing). Then boil it for ten minutes and set aside overnight.

If non of the tips above help to clean your pots and pans then, you better use professional cleaning London services. You can hire a whole home cleaning or just cleaning for your kitchen, depending on what you need and want.
