How can I save my good saucepan. The inside is charred!
I let a pot boil dry, and now the inside is all charred. It is white porcelain on the inside. Can it be saved?
Oh this is a great question and one that I also would like to have an answer to. I have the same problem. Hope someone has an answer for us.
I put a little dishwashing detergent in the pan, add hot water to cover the burn, and let it rest overnight on the counter. In the morning, some of the charred material has been loosened enough to scrape it off with a spatula. Keep doing that until it all becomes soft enough to scrub out with a Nylon pad. I may take two or three soakings.
You can also try putting dryer sheets in the water you are soaking the pot in. Fabric softener will sometimes soften the buildup on the bottom of the pot.
Try putting the pot back on the stove with vinegar and bring to a boil. This usually works....scrape up with rubber spatula. If not....sorry, but you need to buy a new one.
I've heard that an overnight soak with a strong biological clothes detergent solution is good, but haven't tried it myself. Good luck with whichever method you try.
All you need to do is boil a little vinegar in it for a few seconds and then rinse it out. It will be like new!
What about a solution of bleach and dawn, then let it sit over night? Let me know if it works!
Hi. I answered this in the wrong spot a few days ago.
I'm not sure about porcelain but I put my burnt pots in the hot sun for a few days and it lifts the caked on mess quite well.
Or possibly bicarb soda mixed with water and boil it a few times?

Have you ever tried re-potting a tomato plant from your garden to bring inside during the winter?I heard that you can re-pot your tomato plants from the garden to bring inside and keep producing through the winter, with the right lighting. Has anyone ever tried this? What were your results?
