Burnt a utensil while cooking

Date: 15 Jul 2011   Group: Home    Category: Cleaning Queries   


I was cooking sabudana kheer in a steel vessel and had put the flame high because of which the sabudana got stuck to the bottom burning it and leaving dark black material.

I have tried removing it with VIM, steel tar and almost all possible things done at home. But the material does not come out.

Please suggest me some remedies so that I don't have to throw the vessel away.

You may pour some vinegar and keep for sometime and then try. Alternatively you may mix vinegar and water in the vessel covering the burnt part and mildly heat it with low flame.

Other acidi materials like limejuice,tamarind juice also will help, but may need repetition a couple of times. Do not ise very sharp instruments. Use some rough powders with scrubber( a tooth brush like brush is useful)

For burnt pot and pan
Soak burnt pans in a solution of ammonia and water, for an hour. Clean with used lemon & then with soap & water.
If it is an aluminium vessel,
Boil an onion in the pan, the burned stuff will detach itself and float to the top.
For the next time,
Cut an onion into half. Rub it on the insides of your new utensil. Heat a little and add some oil. The utensils will not burn easily.
Hopen it helps.

Sprinkle a liberal amount of baking soda in your cooking pan. Pour enough water to cover the burnt stains. Let it stand for an hour. Put the pan on a flame and bring the baking soda water to a boil. Let the water cool and try scrubbing off the burnt sago.
If you still have trouble repeat the process.

Fill the burnt portion of the vessel with soft water(Do not use hard water) add a tablespoon of lime or vinegar and few drops of vim liquid.
Place the vessel in the stove till the mix reaches boiling point. Wait for 1 minute and switch of the stove. Clean after the mix cools down with a scrub.

In my opinion you should put some water and two or three spoonful of salt and boil it for half an hour at low flame.Then switch off the stove, and let the stem down, not completly, when you can able to touch or put hand in it , then with scrotchbrite brush it properly. Some what it would clean, since rest, if steel burn it will not shines as earlier.

Generally the most oil contained items like sabudana are prone to get sticked to the vessel if not handled properly i.e. at lower temperature with proper qty of oil.
But if so happenned, then I suggest one should keep the vessel in the water immediately after emptying the foods therein.
After some time we should take one spoon and tried to remove as much as you can by spoon on the sticked sabudana.
After that you may use any bar like, vim bar. By the time the sticky substance get some moisture from water and a part can be thrown out because of spoon or such kind of any other element.
I hope this will definitely help you out.

This is a common problem that happens with everyone. An easier way to remove such materials is, overheat the utensil. When the utensil gets overheated the burnt fragments start coming out, remove from heat and try to scratch it off gently. Do it when it is hot but be careful. Do not burn your fingers. Just rinse after some time. After that for better results, put some water, vim powder, vinegar and leave it for 12 hours. You will get a clean utensil after you wash it.
