Stainless Steel Cleaning 101…so, I caramelized some onions outside and it was so windy that I couldn’t really control the heat so I got a bunch of grease spots and stuck on bits… anyway, let’s clean it! My pan is the 10.5 in @allclad graphite core btw! Directions: 1. Use a non abrasive detergent (@seventhgeneration) and let it sit on warm soapy water. Clean off as much as you can. 2. Form a paste with 3 parts @barkeepersfriend & 1 part water. Rub it all over the pan with a cloth. Let it sit for 1 MIN. That’s it. 3. Using a nylon pad or something that won’t scratch like the scrub daddy, scrub until squeaky clean and rinse with warm water. 4. That’s it. #stainlesssteel #stainlesssteelcookware #cleaninghacks #cleaningtips #homecooking do you find these videos helpful?
