How to clean a non-stick pan … kitchen helper


We all love non-stick pans but if you’re finding that yours have lost their non-stick properties there are a few things you can try.

The main culprit that will ruin non-stick pans is a build-up of grease and food. Try a paste of equal parts of bicarbonate of soda and water and rub it onto the pan in a circular motion with a soft brush or cloth. When you see the bicarbonate of soda turning brown you’ll know that it is working to remove the built up grease. Once you have removed the residue simply rinse and dry the pan.

If you find that food is still sticking, you can try simmering a mix of one part vinegar to two parts water in the pan for about ten minutes. Allow the mix to cool in the pan and then wash in warm, soapy water.

Still sticking? Well that probably means that the non-stick finish has worn off your pan and it is time to go shopping for a replacement.
