Remove Carbonized Oil from a Nonstick Pan
Have you noticed your nonstick pan isn’t working as well as it did when you bought it? You may be able to restore your nonstick pan to full functionality with this at-home treatment.
Because Swiss Diamond nonstick cookware cleans up so effortlessly, it is easy to leave behind miniscule grease particles. Over time, these particles carbonize on the interior surface of the pan, causing a dark colored build-up and reducing nonstick ability. The good news is, this build-up is fairly easy to remove at home.
To remove carbonized oils from your pan, mix a solution of baking soda and water about the consistency of toothpaste. Rub this solution into the pan wherever you see the dark build-up. Scrub vigorously with fingers or a non-abrasive sponge or dish rag. Rinse clean and wash with hot soapy water. Repeat as necessary.
A best practice is to perform this treatment once every 25 uses to prevent any build-up from occurring. Washing thoroughly with hot, soapy water each time you use your pan will also help prevent this problem.
