17 Jun How to clean ceramic cookware
Ceramic pots and pans are now more and more common in the kitchen because their internal coating does not cause food to attack. Above all, ceramic is a good conductor of heat and, causes the heat to spread uniform and rapidly, resulting in a regular cooking process. This will lead to considerable savings on the gas or electricity bill because the times are reduced. Being a material that also lends itself to very high temperatures, these pans do not release any toxic substance and are also very resistant to abrasions and scratches. However, sometimes there are burnt spots and you will have to proceed carefully to remove them. Below, in this short tutorial, we will find helpful tips on how to clean ceramic cookware.

Most of the time, the ceramic pots burn at the edges so we certainly tried to eliminate the burns with lemon or hot water, but without obtaining satisfactory results. In this situation, it is necessary to refer to the remedies of the past. In fact, any grandmother would recommend filling the sink with four tablespoons of baking soda and water at forty degrees and immersing the pot in it. If that doesn’t work, then you can try two tablespoons of baking soda, pouring them directly onto the pot, and rubbing the entire surface of the pot a little with the non-abrasive side of a wet sponge.
Now, all that remains is to wait about an hour. After this period, always helping us with the non-abrasive side of a wet sponge, we can proceed to remove the dirty part. Attention, remember to always use the utmost delicacy, excluding the abrasive side of the sponge. In this way, you should not have any sort of problem. Our pot should come back clean and without any kind of scratch or abrasion.
Sometimes, it can also happen that we find pots and pans stained with black (not only burnt) after, for example, boiling potatoes. There are serious difficulties in removing the black stain forming, as the screen or the abrasive sponges are also absolutely unsuitable in this case. Indeed they could irreparably damage the pan. Moreover, even the remedies with baking soda may not lead to the desired result. In these circumstances, we can opt for another method that involves using bleach. Poured in small quantities over the entire surface of the pan and, by rubbing lightly with a sponge, we will see the most stubborn stains go away.
Clean ceramic pots and pans with vinegar
If your pots and pans are only lightly soiled, you can wash them by hand as you normally would or by adding water and letting them soak for a while, but what if there is serious food caked on the surfaces? Then follow these directions.
Fill the pot with enough water to cover surfaces with food stains and raise the temperature over medium heat, bringing it to a boil. Add the baking soda. Sprinkle with baking soda. Scrape caked food off the pan with a wooden spoon (note: do not use abrasive utensils as they can ruin the pan’s coating)
Unload and scrape
Remove the water and baking soda from the pot and let it cool for a few minutes. Fill the pan with some vinegar enough to cover surfaces that have food stains, and sprinkle with a good amount of baking soda. If the pan is very dirty, also sprinkle some coarse salt. Wait for the vinegar and baking soda to fizz and work their magic before doing your magic. Use a swab to scrub away the stains until they are gone!
