Kitchen Tip: Cleaning Grill Pans

Grill pans are a great kitchen tool but a hassle to clean, as greasy and/or charred stuff often gets stuck in the ridges. Here's the best way I've found to clean one:

Rinse off the pan under hot water. Sprinkle it liberally with baking soda and place it on a stove burner.

Pour water onto the pan and turn the burner on high.

Let the water boil. As it boils off, you may want to (carefully) pour on more water, depending on how caked the pan is.

Turn off the burner and CAREFULLY carry the pan to the sink. Pour out the water and run hot water onto the pan. Let it cool a bit, then use a scrubber brush with a handle to scrape off the remaining goo.

Rinse the de-gunked pan and return it to the burner. Turn it on high again and let it go just till the water burns off. Let the pan cool and put it away.
