Twice in the last week I've had to clean up hard, black, burnt on food residue--once was a honey-based sauce in a glass dish, the other was a marinade mixed with rendered pork fat in a stainless steel roaster. Sticky, crusty stuff! Both times in desperation I tossed a scoop of Oxy Clean type powder into some hot water and let the mess soak. On both the glass and the stainless steel the mess softened and came loose easily in less than a half an hour! Next time I broil a steak or make Chinese Char Siu (lacquered pork ribs) and have to deal with my broiler pan, I know what I'm going to do. It's so easy it's like a dream!

Not an ad--just a shocked and happy convert.

Thought I'd pass it on.

We use a smoker quite often at our house and the best way to clean the trays and catch pans is to soak them in a sink of hot water and oxy clean. A half an hour later, all the gross stuff is gone. It is truly a miracle and works far better than regular dish detergent.

No, you are not the last person on earth to know this! All I ever used it for was laundry, and cleaning sewing machine attachments, feet, etc. Thumps head -- should have known this, but thanks!!

Nope I did not know this. Who-da-thunk??

I wonder if it will take the black baked on gunk on the bottom of my favourite fry pan? Washing soda allegedly works well for this but I can seldom find it here anymore.

Will give this a try for your suggestion and the bottom of my pan. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Thanks!

To think all this time I've been using baking soda (don't like chemicals on my food dishes) Just let the baking soda soak, as in a paste, and 20 minutes later, you're ready to clean.

But I do have a Jenn Air cooktop and I'll try the Oxy Clean on it.

I hadn't heard this, either--but one thing I've heard, but never tried (because it sounds oogy) is that soaking a fabric softener dryer sheet will loosen the cooked-on gunk in your pans.

Soaking in Dishwasher powder has always worked for me.

well, thanks for the tip! Could be quite helpful. I did a major cleanup of our stove and oven last weekend, and the stove manual suggests that for items like stove top grates that have burnt on gunk, you can put the grates in a plastic bag with about a quarter cup of ammonia (do this outside), close the bag, leave it overnight, and the next morning the stuff wipes off pretty easily. love having more tools and tips in my cleaning toolbox....
