When buying a frying pan with a ceramic coating, we hope that now the food will stop burning, will retain its useful properties, and the new purchase will last a long time. But in order for the device to please more than one year, you need to take good care of it. However, even if all conditions are met, the pan may darken from carbon deposits. How to wash off dirt without damaging the coating?

What should not be used to clean a ceramic-coated pan?

The non-stick coating of a ceramic frying pan is easily damaged by scratching or aggressive substances. The kitchen appliance must not be cleaned:

  • brushes;
  • metal sponges;
  • melamine sponges (the instructions for them state that surfaces in contact with food are prohibited from processing with such aids);
  • compositions containing abrasive substances.

In addition, you should not resort to the following methods to remove dirt from the ceramic pan:

  1. Boiling water with soda. This will help get rid of the accumulated carbon deposits, but after such a procedure, the pan will lose its non-stick properties forever along with a layer of a special coating.
  2. Boiling a solution of water and silicate glue. As a result of such manipulations, a sticky and hard-to-remove plaque will remain in the pan.

Should you wash your fixture?

There is an opinion that it is better not to wash a ceramic pan at all. If, after use, no burnt food remains on it, then it is enough just to rinse the device with a pressure of water.

For light dirt, it is necessary to soak the pan for a while, and then wipe it with a soft sponge with the addition of a cleaning agent. It is important to keep in mind that ceramics are afraid of temperature changes. Therefore, it is better to wait until the cooking utensils have cooled down, and only then pour warm water over them. Otherwise, the appearance of microcracks on the surface of the device cannot be avoided.

How do I remove carbon deposits inside the pan?

There are several ways to clean the inside of your cooking utensil:

  1. You can try to remove dirt from a hot frying pan with a dry paper towel.
  2. It is advisable to remove minor residues of burnt food with olive oil. It is recommended to wipe the appropriate areas, after washing the kitchen utensil, with a paper napkin or rags moistened with a plant product. After that, the pan should be rinsed with water.
  3. Soaking the utensil in water with a few drops of detergent helps to deal with fresh carbon deposits and grease.
  4. Removing traces of oil allows the use of alcohol. After washing the cooking utensils, wipe them with a cotton swab moistened with the above liquid and rinse.
  5. Kitchen alkaline gels can cope with old traces of fat if the instructions for use indicate that a particular product can be used to clean pans.
  6. It is allowed to try to get rid of dirt by using an oven spray. It must be diluted in water, observing a ratio of 1:20, and then soak the pan in the resulting solution for 15–20 minutes. After this period, the kitchen appliance must be washed.

The easiest way to remove carbon deposits from a frying pan is to process it in a dishwasher (if there is one, of course). It is only required a few times - until the desired result is obtained - to withstand the cooking utensils at the maximum setting, each time adding a special agent (gel or capsules).

What is suitable for cleaning the device from the burnt oil from the outside?

To remove dirt from the outside of the ceramic pan, you can use rubbing alcohol, gels, oven spray, or load the cooking utensils into the dishwasher and process them as described in the previous section. Also, carbon deposits accumulated on the outside can be cleaned off with a melamine sponge, since the frying device contacts the food only inside.
