How to restore your Dutch oven after burning it to a crisp, according to a cleaning expert

WE’VE all been faced with pots and pans that are covered in burnt residue that just won’t come off.

One expert revealed a hack to easily clean your dirty Dutch oven pot so that it looks brand new—and it’s a game-changer.

Posting to the verified TikTok account @TestKitchen, a woman first showed her pot completely covered in black guck—clearly the result of a burnt dish.

Luckily, she knows how to get it all off.  

“Fill the pot halfway with some tap water and put the pan on the stovetop uncovered.”

She brought the water to a boil and let it bubble for two to three minutes before turning off the burner.

“Then scrape off that residue. Scrape it with a wooden spatula or spoon.”

She then poured out the water completely and placed the empty pot off to the side for a couple of minutes.

“That residue is going to start to flake off as the pan dries.”

Afterward, she washed the pot with hot water and dishwashing liquid.

The woman then dried it off with a towel and revealed the shiny surface.

 Viewers were thankful for the trick:

“I literally just dealt with this the other day. I had to scrape it with a metal thing. I wish I saw your video,” one user commented.

“It works for a cast iron as well,” added a second.

Other users shared different tips that work for these kinds of burns:

“Or pour baking soda and cover the bottom. Let it sit and rinse clean,” one claimed.

“Boiling vinegar and baking soda works well for really bad burns,” said another.
