We came across this article entitled How to Clean Pots and Pans You Thought Were Ruined the other day, and found some techniques that look promising.
Here are the ones we like the best:
Burnt on bottom grease is one of the most difficult things to remove, and I’ll admit, this looks simpler (if not more toxic) than our method of boiling a piece in a large pot with baking soda.
Just yesterday I was scrubbing away with a Scotch Brite pad making little progress, so this seems really interesting.
I tend to use a Scotch brite pad here as well, which definitely can scratch the glass, so the Magic Eraser method is much better. I can’t help but think that this would work well on the outside of a tea kettle as well, which gets a lot of grease splatter.
