Do you want to clean your burnt kitchen cookware in a natural way?

Everybody makes mistakes in cooking. It can be a simple mistake like overcooking something or an awful mistake like burning pots and pans. It is important to get to know the kinds of cookware you are using at home. This way you will know how you can use them and how much heat or cooking they can take. The stove that you are using also impacts how your pots and pans will perform.



Cookware made of aluminum heats quicker than other most other metals. Aluminum conducts heat very well. Areas in an aluminum pan that are in direct contact with the flame of a gas burner or the coil of an electric or induction burner will heat immediately. This means that if for example, you are cooking a large fillet of fish using an aluminum skillet, parts of the salmon will be burned and the other parts will be barely medium-rare. You will also notice a lot of smoke coming from the aluminum skillet. 

Cast iron

Cookware made of the cast iron heats very slowly. Cast iron is a poor conductor of heat. However, cast iron heats evenly and will hold onto the heat for a long time even after you take it off the flame. If for example, you will cook a large fillet of fish in a cast-iron skillet, the pan has to be pre-heated for several minutes before it becomes hot enough to sear the fillet. Once heated, the pan will sear the fish evenly and it will be cooked beautifully.

Clad stainless steel

Pots and pans made of clad stainless steel have an aluminum core or plate placed between two layers of stainless steel. Stainless steel is non-reactive. Aluminum metals will tarnish and impart a metallic taste to acidic food. Cast iron will rust if left in water. If for example, you cook a large fish filler in a stainless steel pan, it will cook quickly and will have a pure, untainted flavor. 


It’s pretty normal to have burnt pots, pans, and baking sheets in the kitchen. But there is no reason to throw them all away. Most cookware is very durable and they just need some cleaning. Using natural ingredients like essential oils to clean cookware is better than using harsh chemicals. 

Baking soda is non-abrasive and it can help remove stains and stubborn buildups on pots and pans. Hydrogen peroxide can effectively remove different kinds of stains. It can also eliminate bacteria on different surfaces. Orange essential oil is antiseptic and antibacterial. It also works great getting rid of grease and stubborn sticky stains and residues.


1. Wear your gloves.

2. In a bowl, mix the baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and orange essential oil.

3. Mix to form a paste. (Add a little more baking soda only if you need to thicken it a bit.)

4. Apply the paste on the cookware. 

5. Use the washcloth to spread the paste. Scrub away the stains and residue in a circular motion until clean.

6. Rinse in running water. 

7. Enjoy using your clean, non-sticky cookware!
