How to clean non-stick pots & pans
Updated: Jul 13
Non-stick is an excellent material for cooking, but if we don’t know how to clean, it peels off and not only stops being useful, but its coating can leak into our food, which can be harmful. Learn in this post how to clean your pans and Teflon pots properly. We have three tips for cleaning your pots and pans and leaving them looking brand new.
2) Pour warm water covering the bottom and sides of your pot or pan, add 1 cup of white vinegar and mix it, let it boil for 10 minutes, after it boils remove it from the stove and add two spoons of baking soda.
It will create a reaction with the white vinegar, making it foam once it cools off, throw away the mixture and clean it with warm water and a soft sponge.
3) Add salt the bottom of your pot or pan and warm water, let it sit for 20 minutes after that wash it, if the food remains burned-on, then boil the mixture and after it cools off wash it once again.
Usually, food won’t get stuck, but if it did, we recommend a food scrapper, it gets rid of sticky food easily, the more elbow grease you use, the more your coating gets damaged.
Remember that cleaning a pot or pan is just one step to maintain your purchase for many years. Using it correctly is as important as cleaning it. We always recommend reading the instructions before use and if there are none always asking the manufacturer.
