Step 1: Heat the Pan

I mean really HEAT it. Medium-high for 5-10 minutes.

Step 2: Add Vinegar

Once the pot/pan is HOT add about 1/4 cup of cheap vinegar. Scrape the pot/pan with a flat-edged wooden spoon (or whatever you have!). Everything that was burnt on will easily come off.

I've never needed to add more vinegar or repeat...but if you need to,scrape do it!

The amount of vinegar needed is dependent on the pan, how hot the pan is, what is stuck on, and more.
