    its difficult to stand there and keep stirring cos ive got 2 kids who suddenly decide to demand my attention and climb up my legs when i start making tea! lol

    Place a dishwasher tablet in the bottom of the pan, pour on boiling water from kettle and leave to soak for about an hour. Then clean - piece of cake!!!!

    ooh that sounds good, i'll give that a go. any dishwasher tablets?

    definately full sugar coke works, just let simmer for few minutes and then should come up with a scourer.

    Then give them something to do like drawing or playing games. You shouldn't be putting harsh chemicals in the pan because ultimately some will remain and you'll end up eating it for dinner :thumbsup:

    Cheap and cheerful dishwasher tablets, I use asda's own!! the hard tablets - not sure if the liquitabs will work!!

    if im cleaning it right away a fill with hot water for ten minutes before but if leaving to soak i fill with cold water as hot water carrys on cooking the food burnt to the bottom and sides

    i always put abit of oil in the bottom of the pan before cooking anything and it seems to help and not burn things

    i do give them lots to do e.g. pens, paper, playdoh, dvd, games, etc...... doesnt always work :?

    Dont ask me how i know, but if you boil Rhubarb, the oxalic acid in it cleans your pan a treat \m/

    1) Add a tablespoon of biological wash powder half fill with water, bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Works a treat.

    2) Aluminium/stainless steel/copper pans come up a treat if you chop a rhubarb leaf up, add water, bring to boil and then leave for half hour after turning hob off. The rhubarb leaves are very acidic, this is the reason they are toxic and not edible.

    3) Good oldfashioned soda crystals dissolved in arm water and left to soak for half hour, they are dirt cheap too about 60p for a kilo bag from wilko's. Great for most cleaning jobs, I use them for silver too, line a non metallic bowl with foil - shiny side up and add a solution of water/soda crystals, leave a few minutes you will see the tarnish float to the top, remove rinse with clear water and buff with soft cloth, nice shiny polished silver, minimal work and costs pennies.


    Be careful though do not use anything harsh on non stick coated pans.

    i use non stick pans.

    arm water sounds like you use sweat thats pure minging

    i tend to use washing powder too, has to be powder though like fairy non bio etc, not tablets or liquid dont know why but they dont work. just pop in some powder and leave for a while, works a treat on the barbeque in the summer too.

    kim and aggie use coke (a cola)

    The other powdered sort works well too, the burnt stuff will still be there, you just wont care:whistling:

    Whatever do you keep burning?

    Turn the heat down a lil !!

    I agree with the suggestion of cola, cheapo brand will do fine. Always cleaned the pans up when mum has burnt stuff on to them

    Kim and Agi use potatoes

    Doesn't the non stick coating eventually come off and then into your dinner, the non stick coating being highly toxic I won't be taking you up on that dinner invite :whistling:

    1. Get better pans!

    2. dont cook food on too high a heat

    cheap pans consistenly burn

    only cheap ones from poundland etc. I have a non-stick set which cost a bomb 15 years ago yet are unmarked. Obviously use wooden / plastic utensils :thumbsup:

    and dont ever put pans in a dishwasher, especially stainless steel ones

    lol well i wouldnt know about things like that :whistling:

    tend to your cooking throughout and the more care you take, stirring etc the better off your pans will be

    tru say

    boil some water and bicarb of soda in it:thumbsup:

    thanks for all the advice everyone! rep left. x

    michelle2207;6789134

    which cillit bang pls? isnt there a few diff ones? :oops:



    i use the regular one ( not sure ifthis is meant for pans ! )

    also use the degreaser one

    Go to adsa or tescos - They have a great range of good quality teflon (non stick) Pans...... Very Very good value.... Buy one a week till you got the set if you not got much spare cash. Teflon pans are awsome.

    As for the teflon coming off as mentioned above.. Non of ours have even scratched... Wooden/Plastic Utensils should be used anyway..... Metal is for serving only.
