Do you have broiler pans or cookie sheets that have build up on them so bad that no matter how hard you scrub them it will not come off? Don't worry, my husband showed me a way to clean them where I don't even have to touch them.

I have two young boys and a very busy life, I found keeping nonstick foil on my cookie sheets and storing them in the oven to be both a money and time saver. I have two cookie sheets; one large and one smaller one.

Aluminum cookie sheets do much better if you just wash them in the sink. Do not put in dishwasher ever or scrub hard with a metal scrubber.

After awhile, your cookie sheets will turn black and be "seasoned" like cast iron and will be practically non-stick.

I was making coffee cake muffins and the brown sugar dripped down into the cups. I filled the tins with water and stuck it back in the hot oven until the oven cooled. Then I took the tin out and washed with soap and water.

How do you get off cooked on grease from the new ceramic bakeware and off of Corningware bakeware? I do not use a cooking or baking spray on these, but the grease always seem to fly and bakes on the rim and the outside of the pans. I won't use the Corningware since my hubby thinks they should be spotless and I cannot get them clean!

Thanks.

Just a thought, I had the same thing happen to me and I soaked the dish in some hot water with laundry softener in it. I let it soak and after an hour, I was able to pretty much just wipe it away.

I have also used Goo Gone and sometimes that works. Good luck!

Make a solution of powdered dishwasher detergent and hot water. Use a cup in a sink or dish pan, and soak the pan overnight. Use a nylon scrubby to remove the grease easily.

Soak in a sink with water and bleach several hours or overnight. I always clean my Corning Ware and Corelle dishes this way. Easy.

I have heard that you can put your cookie sheets in your self-cleaning oven with no problem and they come out as good as new. Is this really safe? My pans have a lot of black residue on them from constant use and my new oven gets really hot when it cleans. I do not want a flash fire in my oven when I clean!



Thanks for your help,

I've never heard of that, but then I'm sure there are a lot of things I've never heard of! LOL, I'm too chicken to try it on my oven. I saved for too long to get a self-cleaning oven and I'd be sick if I messed it up!

I use soap filled steel wool pads to scrub off burned on grease most of the time. The hint someone gave about putting a used pad on a piece of aluminum foil to prevent rust has to be my all time favorite hint! It really works!

I also use a foam sanding block (fine grit) to scrub away stubborn burned spots on pizza pans and cookie sheets. They're in the paint accessory aisle next to the regular sandpaper at Wal Mart! About 25 years ago, you could buy these little squares of foam with something similar to wet/dry sandpaper attached to one side. I'd find them near the SOS pads and Scotchbrites. They've disappeared from the stores. The sanding blocks work just as well, they're just bigger! DON'T use steel wool or the sanding blocks on teflon or similar non-stick bakeware! You'll ruin the finish! I'm personally starting to phase out any teflon type cook and bake ware. I'm beginning to doubt they are absolutely safe to use.

Try either SOS pads, which will work best, or else Comet in the powder formula. Both have worked great for me!

I took the chance and cleaned mine in my self-cleaning oven. It worked way better than I hoped. It is almost entirely spotless.

I didn't feel like there was anything at risk by doing this and the cookie sheet is still in great shape.

Make a paste of 1/4 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup salt, and 1/4 cup dish soap (Dawn would be good). Scrub and scrub and it will come off.

Brillo doesn't rust! Leave it on the sink, in the sink, in a dish; they don't rust. The pads in the pink box next to the SOS. You can use them for days and they won't rust! I left SOS behind 40 years ago, when my mother was still "cleaning" her oven!

Brillo is the best, and it doesn't disintergrate rapidly like SOS does. I don't think you get as many in a box, but who cares. A rusty SOS is an awful thing to pickup!

In the past, I have used a paste of either Bon Ami or Barkeeper's Friend, and a bit of elbow grease, to scrub spots and baked on stains from aluminum and steel cookie sheets. Just sprinkle some of the powder on the spots, moisten with a drop or two of water, and scrub with a sponge, scrubber or whatever. It usually works.

I washed my Wilton cakepans in the dishwasher now they are discolored are they safe to use now?

They are just discolored and will still work fine. I wouldn't put them in the dishwasher anymore, or any aluminum because the dishwashing detergent can not only discolor the metal, but create "pits" in the surface. You want to keep the surface smooth so they are as easy to clean and as "non-stick" as possible. But the discoloration is only a cosmetic effect.
