Over andover again!!!

don't get distracted or
buy decent non stick pans
ooh we have a housekeeping topic!

non-stick - bah, they are nothing against my powers of uselessness in all things culinary!! I have burnt one of them before!!!

there is only one way to stop burning pans

get rid of the children

soak them (pans) in washing power and hot water.

or if that doesn't work, chuck them.

oooh, aren't I helpful

ooh I 've done this loads! what does sometimes work (depends on the pan and the sugariness of what you burn) is to boil it up again...but this time with loads of water and a good dose of washing up liquid. Scrub, then repeat and it does eventually come off...

I think it's easier to get off non-non-stick pans [?confused emoticon] as then you can scrub really hard with one of those metal things

Put some Coca Cola in the pan and leave it to boil for a few seconds, take it off and scrub with a brush and keep swilling round.

That will get it off (Kim and Aggie special )

okay so the offending item is soaking in v hot water with good dose of washing powder.
It was just apple and water so only as much sugar as in 2 apples...but it doesn't look good!
Just don't want to have to go through the mixture of piss-taking and irritation from DH that I have, yet again, burnt fucking water <and yet also laughing at self, strangely!>

CocaCola now on shopping list for crazed dash to corner shop in morning! Will try to hide extent of burn from DH until have given good scrub/boiled the coke (hmmmm, sounds decidedly dodgy)

I watched them do it on a revolting pan in a revolting mans revolting house the other day and to my suprise it does work and that burnt stuff had been on alot longer than a day [bork]

Good luck!
