4 Simple Ways To Get Rid of Charred Marks on a Burnt Pan

Many of your utensils may suffer some damage in the process of preparing delicious meals in your kitchen. Charred marks are among those messes you need to clean up after cooking.

Your pan will eventually get charred and the surface will look blackened and burnt. It’s not the best look for a tool that serves you so well when you’re in the mood for some bacon and eggs.

You will need to take care of your pan as well as any other useful tool in your kitchen. Here are a few tips that can help you get it shiny and sparkling again:

Baking soda

Two tablespoons of baking soda mixed with vinegar should help you break down and dissolve charred marks on your pan. Allow this mixture to boil for about 15 minutes before draining it and using a sponge to wipe away any remaining burn marks. 


We know lemons allow for an all-natural cleaning option. They can do so well in getting rid of charred marks on a frying pan. 

Using lemons for cleaning utensils is simple enough. Boil two or three of them in hot water with your pan for about 5-8 minutes. You know it’s working when you see debris floating up to the surface. All you need to do afterward is rinse it with clean hot water and give the pan a good scrub.

Dishwater tablets

Dishwater tablets contain surfactants that can help break down charred marks. 

Rinse your pan with hot water and gently scrub it with your tablet. Make sure to go over it thoroughly until all signs of charring and hardened food are gone before rinsing it again with warm water.

Aluminum foil

Aluminum foil can help scrub away those ashy marks off your pan. If you also have your vinegar, baking soda, or both, you can use those to loosen up stains. After that, wipe the surface of your pan with the crumpled foil until it’s all clear of any charred debris.
