Two of the pans she is cleaning are stainless steel while the other two are cast iron.
First, she quirts ketchup onto the surface to see if the acids in the condiment break down the scorch stain.
Next she sprinkles Bar Keepers Friend on the marks. This has been around since the 1800s.
Cream of Tartar works great on removing these stains from plates. But will it work on the pots and pans? She aims to find out.
Baking soda is the final item to try.
Then she sits back and allows the cleaners to do their thing. After a while, she cleans them off with a sponge.
The ketchup fails. It would take a long time to remove the marks with this terrible method.
Bar Keepers Friend did impressive. It removed everything including the stuff ketchup left behind.
Cream of Tartar was boring and average. Certainly, not as good as the Bar Keepers Friend. It shined the pans but left the marks.
Baking soda does a great job on both types of pans.
But the clear winner is the Bar Keepers Friend.
What do some of the 1.4 million viewers have to say? They shared these popular comments:
“I have cleaned scorched pans by soaking them in a little bleach and hot water. Just let it sit for a while until all the scorch marks have disappeared. The down side is, of course, the toxicity and environmental impact of using bleach,” Leslie Nikulka wrote.
“Thanks for the great and useful info! I think I will try the baking soda as it is so great for cleaning and helping around the house!”
