Removing Burnt Oil From a Frying Pan

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

Supplies:

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.

  4. 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 use Ezoff Oven Cleaner the non-toxic kind. I spray the pan then put in a plastic bag and let it sit over night. Next day I just wipe it off with a paper towel.

I have stains like this on cookie sheets. One cookie sheet has a finish on it. How do I remove similar stains from cookie sheets without hurting the finish?

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.

When I went to the extreme in burning a cast iron pan and a chisel wouldn't do the job. I took a chance on DW-40. It finally loosened enough that I got use of my pan. FREE ALL, a deep penetrating oil works too. Be careful around flames.
