To keep your cookware in tip-top shape, David Burke, chef/owner of David Burke Townhouse, in New York City, recommends “baking” stainless pans at 400° F for two to three hours (be sure the handle is oven-safe). Carefully remove the (very hot!) pan with a pot holder, rest it on the stovetop, and flake off the grease with a spatula.

    What a perfect idea! Now if only I could put tub in the oven and it would come out clean :) I hate scrubbing the tub!

    From Culinary Connection: Been doing this for years. Also, after using those oh so expensive stainless steel all-clads and the like, and getting icky stuff like scrambled eggs stuck in them, simply adding water to the pan/pot and bringing to a boil on the stove will make getting all the stuff off much easier. Yes, wash it hot! Be careful.

You can Use this on your greasy stovetop, counter & spray my kitchen sink, it’s my go to product. I even use it to clean my windows along with a squeegee & no streaks,
