Maintaining Pots and Pans

Have you ever wondered about the culinary magic behind those delicious meals prepared by chefs? Well, believe it or not, part of that magic lies in maintaining pots and pans, and more specifically, how they keep them squeaky clean! I know that all mothers would love to know the chef’s secrets. Let’s explore the exciting realm of pots and pans cleaning secrets, where the secret to creating exquisite food could be right under our noses!

Golden Rules of Maintenance

The secret sauce to their success isn’t just the ingredients and their skills; it’s also the care they give to their pots and pans. Maintaining pots and pans is like nurturing a long-lasting friendship – it takes a little effort but gives great rewards. As your trusted professional cleaning company, we gathered these tips for maintaining pots and pans to help reduce the hassles in your life!

Cool Down Before the cleaning:

Allow the pans to cool after serving your savory masterpiece. Plunging a hot pan into water is like sending it into shock—definitely not recommended! Rapid temperature changes can warp or damage your pots and pans. 

Power of soaking:

Soak your pots and pans in warm, soapy water to clean them. This will loosen grime and make scrubbing easier.

Scrubbing:

A gentle touch does the trick! Scrubbing your pans very hard may seem like a brave thing to do, but it will just cause rips and scratches in the non-stick layer.

Abrasive cleansers should never be used on cleaning and maintaining pots and pans, just as you wouldn’t use sandpaper on the screen of your smartphone. To keep them shining, use mild, non-abrasive detergents.

 Not all cleaners work the same on all surfaces. I personally recommend using Pink Stuff. Not only on cleaning pots and pans but you can also use it on your stainless steel sink. Check out the video above to learn more about it.

A big help in maintaining pots and pans is to place a layer of protection between your pans while stacking them; pads or cloths are excellent at preventing dents and scratches.

Mind Your Ingredients:

The food we cook affects the cleaning process and maintaining pots and pans. 

  • Acidic foods: Such as tomatoes and citrus-based marinades, can react with some metals and create stains. When cooking acidic foods, make sure to immediately clean up to avoid any unexpected encounters and stains.
  • Protein: Protein cooking frequently leaves behind sticky residues. Clean these residues quickly to prevent stubborn dirt. You don’t want a hint of last week’s protein dish in today’s omelet, right?
  • Oil and grease: Although oil and grease contribute to the flavor of our food, they can leave stains on your equipment. Cleaning up after them regularly can keep them from staying in permanently.

Here’s the secret sauce: The condition of your pot and pans may have an impact on how your food tastes. Maintaining pots and pans can enhance the taste of your food and give it an additional touch of flavor. By maintaining pots and pans cleaning tips, you can open the door to an amazing world of cooking!

As we all know life gets busy, and maintaining pots and pans is a must for a happy kitchen. An extra helping hand might be quite helpful at times. We’ll make sure everything in your home is spotless, so you can spend more time cooking and less time worrying about the cleanup.
