How To Get Burnt Noodles Out Of A Pot

I’m going to show you today how to easily remove burned food residue from pots and pans. This includes cooking food residue that has turned black and charred from the bottom of stainless steel or enamel pots and pans. No more scrubbing and scrapping.

This method is limited to enamel and stainless steel pots and pans. I cannot recommend this technique for non-stick cookware. Additionally, you would need to re-season the pan after using this on cast iron.

I know of no better example than when I was cooking something on the stove and turned my back for a few seconds, only to come back minutes later to find my pan completely burned. Dinnertime here can be pretty hectic with a busy toddler running around, so I’m easily distracted. I have burned more than my fair share of pans.

All you need for this method is water and some baking soda. That’s it. I learned this trick from a friend whose house burned down, and her husband used it to salvage her expensive All-Clad stainless cooking set. I was blown away how amazing they looked after he cleaned them up.
