cleaning stainless steel pans


Over time, stainless steel pots and pans tend to build up a film that it often seems no amount of scrubbing can remove.

This material is aptly named, thankfully. True to its name, it resists stains, but it can retain only fingerprints.

The quickest way to remove burnt on stains or scorches is using a metal polish or cleaner, the type you'll find at your local grocery or hardware store.

But there are other options for cleaning stainless steel pans you can try at home first. 

Wear gloves to protect your hands from the metal polish and the metal from fingerprints when cleaning stainless steel pans.

  • Avoid abrasives - they'll destroy the surface sheen of stainless steel pots.
  • Clean cooked-on food or grease by gently scrubbing it with a paste of baking soda and water, using a soft rag or nylon scrubber.
