How to Clean Stains from Nonstick Cookware

Nonstick pans require handling with care when cooking, storing and cleaning. Due to the slick coating of nonstick cookware, cleaning is commonly easy, but when food is burnt on or there are stains to deal with, certain methods of cleaning should be followed to avoid damaging the pan.

1. Hand Wash: The common but all-the-time useful stick is nonstick cookware should be washed by hand. Though the manufacturer claims for “dishwasher safe,” avoid the dishwasher if you possibly can to ensure a long life for your nonstick cookware.

2. Keep Cool Before Cleaning: Always wash pans when they are cold or at room temperature. If you need to wash a pan right after cooking in it to avoid letting stains or burnt-on food set in, allow it to cool first.

3. No Metal Tools and Scrubbers: The number one rule when using nonstick cookware is to never use metal utensils, as they can damage the nonstick surface. The no-metal rule also applies when cleaning nonstick cookware. Always remember that the nonstick surface is delicate; therefore, never scrub it with abrasive cleaners or rough materials like scouring pads or steel wool. Use plastic, wood or nylon tools for scraping off burnt-on food.

4. Mild Detergent: For regular daily cleaning, use a normal dishwashing detergent and warm water. Be sure to rinse the cookware well in cold water to remove all traces of the detergent (as well as the smell of it, which is pleasant when you’re doing the dishes but not so much if it ends up mixing with the food you cook).

5. For Stubborn Stains: For built-up oil or residue, a mixture of vinegar and water can help. In the pot or pan you wish to clean, mix half a cup of vinegar and a cup of water. Boil on the stove. Let the mixture cool to a warm temperature; while cooling, the vinegar will loosen the oil or residue. In the sink, wash the pan with the mixture using a nylon scrubber or dishcloth. Rinse thoroughly. For tough stains or burnt-on food, add a little baking soda to the above mixture.

6. Store Separately: After washing, dry your cookware with a towel or soft cloth. Store nonstick cookware by hanging if possible, to avoid placing one pan on top of another, which can potentially damage the coating.
