Some time ago, I read a tip in First magazine about cleaning a grill. The tip was to put a wet paper towel on the grill while it was still hot. This made it easier to clean. I tried it with my George Foreman Grill and it worked. I recently got a set of stainless steel pans and found that I had some issues with burnt pans. I needed an easy way to clean burnt pans.
I thought about the paper towel tip and wondered how it might work for cleaning burnt pans. As soon as I removed the food and turned off the burner, I placed a wet paper towel into my burnt pans while they were still hot. Cleaning the burnt pans was so much easier because of the wet paper towel. I now had an easy way to clean burnt pans.
I use this tip every time I cook for cleaning my burnt pans. I like to pan sear steak and find that I often have the problem of burnt pans, but now I find the paper towel trick makes cleaning easier. I hope this tip provides others an easy way to help clean burnt pans.
