Quick Tip: How to Wash Your Pans (Product Free!)

Quick Tip: How to Wash Your Pans (Product Free!)

Hello! Christina here, from Meliora Cleaning Product’s Customer Service, with a tip to shorten dish washing time. 

Sometimes during the cooking process, I find that my pan becomes caked with fish, flour, veggies, etc. For years, I would scrub and soak and scrub trying to remove this layer of “cooked to the pan” crust. It was a daunting task.

Over time, I discovered a few tricks to make this process easier, using much less effort. I’d love to share those with you!

Step 1: As soon as you are finished cooking, transfer your food to a serving dish (or transfer the food directly to plates/storage containers for less dishwashing). 

Step 2: Run hot water into your hot pan. 

Step 3: Set the pan back on the stove while you eat. I don’t mind cooled food, so I skip this step in the mornings and move to step 4 before I eat.

Step 4: Scrape the now loose food off the pan. I like to use a spatula for this task.

Step 5: Scrub any of the remaining bits off. Everything should come right off! You can add a little dish soap here, if it makes you feel better. My pans need to stay seasoned, so no soap for me. 

Step 6: Dry!

Note: Non-stick pans require caution with water temperature and "scraping" tools. Read more about non-stick pan care here.
