I just used easy off on a baking pan. Worked pretty well. I have to do a few more applications but it took the stains and what looked like burnt on stuff off. I saw this trick on you-tube

Default Oven cleaner

I use oven cleaner.

It's probably burnt grease and scorch marks on the bottom of his pots and pans. I clean the bottom of the pans after each use. That's stuff is sticky and nasty, and it smells when it's hot. It causes uneven cooking too...
OP, stop scrubbing, and follow this advice:

if all else fails...get a round wire brush head... put in electric drill and use on pan..


I remember years ago I read in a "household hints" small paperback to put rubbing alcohol in pan and warm in the oven...to remove heavy grease stains ....well..i missed the part of keeping the oven door open....and after a 1/2 hour the door blew right open with a big bang!!! and no the pan wasn't any cleaner

That literally made me laugh out loud- I canít even imagine!

I never thought of easy-off- thatís great advice. Does it matter what kind of pan you have? I have set of stainless steel pans and a set of hard anodized pans. I also have cookie sheets with coating on them. I donít use Brillo pads because it scratches the coating of the cookie sheets.

It still may be over kill. OP has yet to get back to us about type of pans and source of heat. I have never had a problem with stainless steel pots or cast iron pots, regardless of heat source. Granted, I have not cooked over a wood stove, but who has? I still would have (and did!) been able to clean the pots with sand and water from the creek running by.

If it's cast iron, put in oven, turn on oven cleaning cycle, when done, re-season.

If it's stainless steel, scrub with Barkeeper's Friend and a scrubbing pad.

Been using these methods for decades. My cast iron is perfectly seasoned, and my stainless looks new.
