Restore Your Bakeware

Most professional bakers don't mind this buildup, as it actually increases the performance of the pan. Baked goods come out even easier. But many home bakers don't like the look of a well-seasoned pan and want to restore its beauty. It can be achieved with a little effort. Learn how to deep clean your bakeware...
How to Deep Clean Your Bakeware
Tools Needed
Well-used bakeware pan
Soft cloth
Warm water
Bar Keepers Friend Cookware and Cleanser Polish (Be sure that you get the Cookware Polish, as it has a non-bleach formula that is recommended for cookware).
  1. Run bakeware under warm water. Sprinkle pan with Bar Keepers Friend Cookware and Cleanser Polish.
  2. Gently rub the powder into a paste, and allow to sit for 1-2 minutes. Stubborn stains may take up to 5 minutes.
  3. Rinse with warm water. Stubborn stains may need to be worked on again.
  4. So clean, that you can see my image reflected in it!
