Just like in a commercial kitchen, even the smallest home kitchens experience carbon and grease build-up, mainly on sheet pans, oven racks, and sauté pans but it can occur on any stainless or aluminum surface exposed to heat and fats, oils and greases (“FOG”).
Besides being unsightly, FOG build-up can effect the performance and heat distribution in your pans, as well as be a breeding ground for microbes.
Here’s how you can get your sheet and sauté pans lookin’ shiny and new with this homemade “miracle” cleaner…WAY cheaper than caustic commercial cleaning products!

Combine 1/4 cup of baking soda and enough hydrogen peroxide in a small glass bowl to make a thick paste. Mix well. Use a nylon scouring pad to rub the paste into the carbon build-up/stains/greases…and scrub in a small circular pattern with firm pressure.
Rinse well, repeat as needed, and finally wash with soap and hot water, in the dish washer if possible.
