I forgot to remove my pan from the burner after frying taco shells, causing the oil to burn onto the pan.
Total Time: 10 minutes
SOS pads work great for this. They clean up glass and metal baking pans with no soaking required. Just wet the pan and swipe with an SOS...comes out great! Make sure you buy the pads that are already soaped.
If you are having a hard time getting burnt oil off a frying pan, try this simple tip. This method will get your pan looking like new in no time!
Why the noise, and no proofreading?
Best way to clean burned oil from frying pans is to sprinkle some Comet onto wet surface, wait a minute, and put half an inch of warm water onto it. Let it soak half an hour, and rinse. The oil will be gone without scraping. Sometimes a bit of wiping with a sponge is needed, but never any scraping, which might scratch the surface.

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?
I scorched a stainless steel skillet after spraying it with PAM. It looks glazed on. Baking soda did not help. Any ideas?
Try putting the baking soda in the pan with water and bring to a boil. This may help some. Also you can try putting hot water in your pan and a sheet of Bounce that you use in the dryer and let it soak over night. It will help take off the scorched part of the pan and maybe the glazed look. Hope this will help you.

Use a steel wool pad (like SOS). This has always cleaned my stainless steel pans after all kinds of embarrassing disasters. Let the pan soak a few minutes (or overnight) first.
I use oven cleaner. It works great. Spray on, leave awhile. Then wash as usual.
