the quickest and easiest way to clean

your pots pans and casserole dishes

hello aspiring Food Network Stars

it’s Melissa maker here from to clean my

space with a couple of screwdrivers of

coke layer on behalf of Tamara Tamara

asked me hey Melissa is there an easier

way to clean pots and pans aside from

soaking them for three days

well people normally do when they burn

something or cook something without

protecting the bottom of their casserole

dish is so and as you can see I have so

fist thing for about three days and made

some potatoes and you know I probably

shoulda done a better job at hey I’m in

the cleaning business not the cooking

business however what you can see is oil

spatters and thick soup from burning

stuff that’s not coming off anytime soon

so when you’re faced with a pan like

this what do you do I’m going to scrub

it for an hour are you going to let it

sit for three days in your kitchen

sticking the place up and looking

absolutely horrendous

so let’s talk tools for this task I

recommend one or two drops of

dishwashing liquid the reason is it cuts

grease and that’s what we need for a

heavy-duty cleanup job second thing

we’ll need some iron hammer some baking

soda gloves to protect your lovely hands

the cleaning toothbrush which I’ve

cleaned because I’ve used it for a

number of other bigger tasks and a

sponge dull side let’s scrub the crap

out of this pan first thing I’ll do is

that just a bit of dishwashing soap to

the pan I told you if I want to cut

grease the second thing I’m going to do

is that about a tablespoon of baking

soda to the bottom of the pan now you

can see I’ve added some water to this

and I forgot to mention it in the tools

that you’ll need but come on who doesn’t

have water in her kitchen

okay so I’ve put the pan on high and

they all will just let it simmer for a

while the baking soda the water the

dishwashing liquid it’s all working in

my favor the less elbow grease for me

the better the heat will speed up the

process of breaking down the soup at the


it’s tough water nonstick and you’ve

still got something burning on the

bottom that you can’t get off you need

cooking classes my pan is starting to

simmer out this is good I’ll take this

foamy concoction dump it down the sink

add a little bit more baking soda and be

careful because the pot is hot it’s easy

now I can use a toothbrush or I can use

this market and a few quick swipes you

can see how easy it was to clean even a

worse pan how awesome is this I took a

really nasty pan and I cleaned it in no
