Needless to say, the frying pan is one of the most important kitchen utensils. There is it literally in every home and is probably used every day. Sooner or later, this tool becomes covered with carbon deposits, which can be very, very difficult to get rid of. You can use special tools from the store, or you can go the other way, using the proven "old-fashioned" method.
So, it is worth emphasizing right away that the described method is quite "hardcore" and should be used only in those situations when the state of the old frying pan was completely neglected.
For cleaning, you will need a source of open fire (for example, a gas burner), a metal sponge, a container of water for the size of a frying pan, and ordinary dishwashing detergent will also come in handy, which in the usual case would be completely useless.
You need to work in a safe place where nothing can catch fire during processing of the pan. Optimally - on the street. The first and most important thing to do is to burn all the carbon deposits with a burner. Since it is essentially old fat, it will burn relatively easily at sufficient temperature. After that, the pan is dipped into a container of cold water.
We are waiting for the metal to cool down. This will take some time. After that, we arm ourselves with a scraper or a metal sponge from the mesh and begin to remove carbon residues. This will not be difficult at all, after the thermal processing of the pan. At the very end, it is recommended to wash the pan under running water using ordinary detergent. The entire cleaning procedure takes about 10 minutes.
