How many times have you happened to prepare a nice steak over the coals? Especially in summer, it’s nice to prepare food cooked over coals or simply roasted on a steak pan. Often, however, you can risk damaging the steak pan during washing, when you need to remove all the encrustations on the surface. Let’s look at some tips for cleaning the steak pan without damaging it.
Remedies for cleaning the steak pan from encrustations
Among the most common remedies is definitely the one that involves the use of white vinegar. In this case, it will be enough to fill the steak pan with very hot water mixed with a half glass of vinegar, and let it soak for a few hours. Another very effective remedy for cleaning the steak pan is to use baking soda. Again, it will be necessary to mix the baking soda with a little water and leave it for a few hours. Once you have cleaned the surface of the steak pan, you will immediately notice that the fouling will be completely gone.
Alternatively, we can also recommend the use of lemon juice mixed with salt. It is important, in this case, to let the mixture act until it has dried, and then rinse the surface of the steak pan with plenty of water. We do not recommend rubbing the steak pan excessively while rinsing, as the salt granules may scratch and damage the surface.
Another very effective remedy for cleaning the steak pan is to use coffee grounds. Instead of throwing them away, you can prepare a mixture with coffee grounds and boiling water and leave it on the surface of the steak pan for a few hours. This way, you will immediately see how quickly the dirt residue and scale will disappear.
Finally, an alternative remedy for cleaning the steak pan can also be to use olive oil. In this case, you will only need to sprinkle the entire surface with oil and then cover it with a double, very strong napkin. After a few hours, you will be able to gently rub the steak pan to completely clean the surface, removing all the accumulated residue. Of course, you will need to clean and wash the steak pan thoroughly afterwards, as using olive oil may leave the surface too greasy.
In this regard, we can advise you to proceed with a second washing with vinegar or baking soda. As you have seen, the remedies for being able to clean your steak pan without the risk of damaging the surface are really many and easy to put into practice.
