Frypans typically have a nonstick surface that makes them very easy to clean, but sometimes the bottom of the pan becomes scratched, leading to food sticking and flavors getting trapped. The following are the steps of cleaning the frying pan’s bottom:
Follow the below-mentioned steps for the better and quick cleaning of the bottom of fry pans:
- Bring water to a boil. Add enough salt.
- Add baking soda and stir until it has dissolved completely.
- Let the concoction boil for a few minutes (do not let this solution become too concentrated, as it may ruin your pan).
- Pour the solution into an oven-safe pot and bring it to a boil.
- Add your pan to the boiling solution and rest it on the counter for about 10 minutes.
- Remove from stove and let sit on a flat surface for a few minutes.
- Rinse your pan with water and dry it thoroughly with a paper towel.
- To rinse, add a bit of water to the pan and use a paper towel to rinse.
- Let your pan dry out completely.
- Now that your pot is clean, you can’t guarantee it will stay that way. To best preserve the nonstick surface, remove any food that may still be stuck to the bottom using a paper towel and then wipe it down with a bit of oil (like vegetable oil) to help prevent sticking in the future.

Easily Cleanable Cookware Sets
The best cookware sets, based on this criterion, are those that have a non-stick surface. Since the surface has been coated with PTFE (PolyTetrafluoroEthylene), cleaning is easy, as food doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan, and you don’t need to scrub it very hard.
Before buying a new cookware set for your house, you can take a look at these five non-stick cookware sets:
- Anolon Advanced 16-pc. Cookware set
- Cuisinart Elite Pro-Series 10-piece cookware set
