How to Clean Enamel Pots and Pans. This easy trick also works for stainless and ceramics
Here in the states it’s Thanksgiving week, and chances are you are cooking something. It’s a great time of year to show off all your pretty dishes. However, if you are like the rest of us, you have the problem of grime. After only a few bakes your enameled stoneware or ceramic dishes have lost some of their original luster. I will show you how to clean enamel pots, pans, dishes, etc. This technique also works beautifully for stainless steel.
Beautiful loaf pan, ugly drips. That is why I am here. Consider me your pots and pans fairy. What if I told you that you can clean your enamel, ceramic, or stainless steel while giving your hands a nice little skin treatment? I know, I know. This is too good to be true. But wait, it gets better! It takes only a minute and it is basically free (this is why they call me the pots and pans fairy).
Baking Soda. That’s all you need to clean your enamel! Baking soda and a drop of water will make your baking dishes look as good as new. Truly. See?
To clean your enamel:
Take some baking soda, sprinkle it on the affected area, and dip your fingers in water. Now rub in a circular motion and all of that grime on your pretty pie plate will come off as easy as pie (#punny).
Some spots may be more stubborn than others, especially if they have been baked on over, and over, and over again. That’s okay. It will come off. More baking soda and more rubbing. Simple. Grimy to shiny in just a few minutes with some baking soda and elbow grease.
Now go get those pots and pans holiday-dish-ready!
PS. Always spot test any new cleaning method before applying to the entire area.
