I forgot to remove my pan from the burner after frying taco shells, causing the oil to burn onto the pan.

Supplies:

  • 1 Tbsp Dawn dish soap
  • water

Steps:

  1. Add Dawn dish soap to the pan. Fill the pan about halfway with water.
  2. Put the pan on the stove and boil for about 5 minutes. Be sure to set a timer.
  3. Using a metal spatula, carefully scrap away as much of the oil as possible. NOTE: Do not use a metal spatula on a non-stick pan.

  5. Empty the soap water into the sink. Then scrub with a sponge to remove any remaining oil.

I burned oil in a stainless steel pan, about 10 minutes on the stove burning. The pan has a burnt oil smell I can't get out. Any suggestions?
