How do I clean burner pans?
By Karen from Parker Dam, CA
I just use SOS soap pads on mine.
Wrap burner pans in aluminum foil. It keeps them clean and looking new.
I spray mine with oven cleaner, put them in a white kitchen trash bag, twist and use a bread tie to seal, put them in the microwave with door shut overnight. This next morning you can just rinse off most stuff and use a stainless steel cleaning pad on hard stuff. Dont use the new kind with no odor. It doesnt work as well. Of course, I wipe them off after every meal so they don't get too bad.
The best thing is to clean them regularly in dish detergent, and maybe scrub with a Brillo pad, so that food drippings don't cook on. If they're in bad shape, try soaking a few hours in the sink in water with dish detergent and about 1/2 cup water softener, then scrub with plastic scrubbers. I discovered, the hard way, that if you don't clean them often enough, the cooked on drippings will spoil the chrome finish; you can get them clean, but not shiny. After I replaced my (ruined) old ones, I've been washing the new ones more regularly. Even so, I got to one too late and some of the chrome is ruined again.
