How to Rescue a Burnt Pan

Regular readers please pick yourselves off the floor, yes, this is a post about housework. But not just any old housework – lazy housework. The thought of you scrubbing away at a burnt pan when I have the secret formula weighs heavily so I thought I’d share my tip.

Haven’t we all been there? Distracted by something far more interesting we somehow let a pan boil dry or a sauce burn and we are left with a decidedly burnt pan. You could scrub away at it until it is gone or you could take the easy route.

The big secret? Cola. A small bottle of full fat cola heated gently in the pan will lift the black marks in minutes and leave you with a shiny pan. Hurrah!
