    Default Help with removing "bottom-of-the-pot" gunk


    I will be moving to a "new-to-me" home which only has electricity. I

    currently have been cooking on a gas range for several years, so the

    bottom of my pots have accumulated "gunk" from the usage of gas. I do

    not want to scratch up the new stove with my old pots and pans. Does

    anyone have suggestions for taking all the "gunk" off? I have tried

    before but I have not been very successful.





    Thanks in advance for your suggestions,





    April

    Oven cleaner. If you don't want to use the spray type, try amonia.

    Thanks Ann! I never thought of oven cleaner, although I use it with my

    gas oven. Go figure.

    baking soda & salt solution; make a paste using little water; let sit, then

    scrub!

    lol--you're welcome. This is a good example of "think outside the

    box". Or is that think outside the oven?

    ROTFL! That's what Budget 101 is all about: Finding a cheap or no cost

    solution to a problem is definitely thinking outside of the oven

    Another use for an old standby. I have used baking soda on them before,

    but I never thought of combining with vinegar. Hmm, I'll try the baking

    soda and vinegar on the pots with the least amount of gunk and use the

    oven cleaner for the harder jobs.

    <div style="font-family:arial, helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:12pt;">I have been having pretty good luck by pouring on the baking soda and then a lot of white vinegar, let it bubble and fizz. When done hot water and a scrubber should get it out without too much hard work

    You should be able to. It should be with the scrubbing cleaners like Comet.
