Burnt Oil on a Stainless Steel Pan

Burnt Oil on a Stainless Steel Pan

I have a burnt on food stain on my stainless steel pan from oil. I have tried baking soda, vinegar, simmering water with baking soda and vinegar and soapy water. Here is a picture of it below. I have also used a baking soda paste overnight twice now. I need help.

I use a product called Bar Keepers Friend in the cleaning aisle. And you can also use an SOS pad. Hope it works. (08/12/2009)

You can soak overnight with water and a fabric softener sheet. Then empty and sprinkle on Barkeepers friend and let sit 10 minutes and scrub well. It really does a fantastic job! Good luck. (08/12/2009)

If all else fails, try some spray on oven cleaner. I'd do this outdoors. (08/12/2009)

This method works great for grills and may remove the burned on oil from your stainless steel pan. Place 1 cup of liquid dishwasher detergent and 1 cup of white vinegar along with your pan in a black plastic garbage bag. Let it sit in the sun for an hour or two. Then wash the pan and use an SOS or Brillo pad to scrub it clean. Make sure the detergent and vinegar get inside the pan. (08/17/2009)

Try using a lot of tomato ketchup to cover it and let it sit overnight, then scrub it off. Works on copper, so it might work on stainless steel, or boil some rhubarb in water for about an hour. Don't burn it. Cleans my pots so they shine. Good luck. (08/17/2009)

You can also try filling part way with water and bring to a boil. After a minute or two use a metal spatula to start scraping it off while the water is still boiling. You may need to do this a couple times but it has worked for me whether burned on food or oil.

If you use oven cleaner be sure afterward to soak with dish soap and hot water then wash well. (08/18/2009)

I used a "Mr. Clean" eraser. I know it says not to use on stainless steel but I didn't want to throw my pot away. It came out beautiful. I washed it real good with Dawn and hot water. (08/20/2009)

Automatic dishwasher detergent and water soaked overnight. That stuff dissolves everything. (08/25/2009)
