How to Clean Eggs Off a Stainless Steel Pan (With Photos)

How to clean burnt eggs from stainless steel frying pan

The other night I was making eggs when this happened. My stainless steel frying pan ended up with a thin layer of burnt eggs on the bottom and sides that was very difficult for me to scrape off or wash.

That thin layer of eggs sure was a pain. So I did some research and decided to test out the simplest solution to this problem of them all. Happily for me, it worked. 

If you’ve found yourself in a similar situation, I’m going to help you get out of it; only with tap water and in less than 10 minutes.

Are Stainless Steel Pans Non-Stick?

Are Stainless Steel Pans Non-Stick?

I recently switched from cast iron to stainless steel cookware. This includes my frying pan. So I’m now cooking with a 10-inch stainless steel frying pan from a Dutch cookware maker.

Cooking with stainless steel is a great experience, as long as you know how to use it. When I was researching what kind of frying pan to buy, one of the first questions that came to my mind was just how non-stick stainless steel cookware was. It turned out I wasn’t the only one asking that question.

How to Clean White Spots on a Stainless Steel Pan or Pot

My wife and I recently rented a new apartment and decided to treat ourselves by renewing some of our cookware. As regular readers know, I’m pretty specific about the model and make of frying pans and chef’s knives that I use. Less so when it comes to pans and pots.

So we ordered new porcelain eatware and stainless steel cookware from IKEA along with a couple of things we needed for the different areas of our new apartment. One of those items was what I’d now describe as a really good stainless steel pot with a lid.

The Best Skillets on Amazon

If I could only buy a single piece of cookware in my entire lifetime, I’d go without hesitation for a skillet. A good skillet is sturdy and versatile. You can cook with it on the stovetop as well as in the oven. With the right care and maintenance from your side (as, in my view, any good piece of cookware deserves), it will last you a lifetime.

A skillet is a flat-bottomed pan that you can use for frying, searing, and sautéing food. It has short and curved sides. With a large surface and flared rim, a skillet gives you enough space to stir, move, and flip ingredients around, while allowing you to pour out cooking sauces and liquids.

In 20 years of home cooking, I’ve spent many hours researching, buying, and using some of the best skillets for home cooks on the market. I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s a skillet for everyone and no two skillets are alike. You just need to know what you’re looking for to make sense of all the options like shapes, sizes, and materials out there.

If you’re looking for the best skillets on Amazon, here’s my buyer’s guide.

Who said cooking should only happen in the confines of your kitchen? If you’re like me and you love to go camping, then cooking a tasty meal for yourself, family, and friends can be one of the most rewarding things to do out in the wild. And if you forage for mushrooms, truffles, berries, and wild garlic, you can find some of the freshest and most amazing ingredients in the open.

Foraging for ingredients is only part of the fun. You also need reliable and sturdy camping cookware to help you cook them up into delicious and aromatic meals. And if you ask me, there’s no camping cookware as essential as the skillet. Let me tell you why…

You can use a camp stove or build a fire. You can cut ingredients with a knife or tear them up into small chunks by hand. No matter how you prefer to do things when you cook outside, a good skillet will provide you with a solid cooking surface for your food.

In this blog post, I’m going to share my experience looking for the best skillet for camping (+ my tried and tested recommendation for the best skillet for camping).
