How to Clean a GreenPan Skillet
Step 1: Let it cool down.
The first step to cleaning any GreenPan skillet is to let it cool down. If the pan is still hot, you risk burning yourself or making the mess worse.
In addition, putting a hot pan under cool water can cause it to warp due or ruin the non stick coating to thermal shock. So, always let your pan cool down before trying to clean it. Even then, don't run it under cold water, but warm water instead.
Step 2: Get rid of any food residue.
The first step in cleaning a GreenPan skillet is to remove any food residue that may be on the surface. You can do this by wiping the skillet with a damp cloth or paper towel.
If there is still any stubborn food residue, you can use a non-abrasive sponge or brush to scrub it off.
Step 3: Soak your skillet in warm, soapy water.
Once you have removed all the food residue from your skillet, it's time to soak it in warm, soapy water.
This will help loosen any dirt or grime that may be stuck on the surface of the pan. Let your skillet soak for about 20 minutes before moving on to the next step.
Step 4: Scrub the skillet with a non-abrasive sponge or brush.
After your skillet has soaked, it's time to scrub it with a non-abrasive sponge or brush. Be sure to scrub all sides of the pan, including the bottom.
If you have a GreenPan that is starting to show signs of wear, you can use a little bit of white vinegar to help remove any stubborn stains.
Step 5: Rinse your skillet with warm water.
Once you have finished scrubbing your skillet, rinse it off with warm water. You may need to repeat this step several times until all of the soap residue has been removed from the pan.
Step 6: Dry your skillet with a clean towel.
The final step in cleaning your GreenPan skillet is to dry it with a clean towel. Be sure to dry all sides of the pan, including the bottom.
How to Clean Burnt GreenPan Skillets
If your Green Pan has burnt-on food, don't despair. Here are a few tips to get it looking new again. One of the benefits of ceramic cookware is that it's easier to clean than other types of cookware.
First, try boiling water in the pan for a few minutes. This will help loosen any stuck-on food.
If that doesn't work, you can try using a non-abrasive soft sponge or nylon scrubber.
For tougher stains, you can make a paste out of baking soda and water and scrub with that. Rinse it out with white vinegar.
Once you've removed the burnt food, be sure to wash the pan with hot, soapy water and dry it thoroughly.
Now, your Green Pan should look good as new!
How to Remove Burnt Oil from GreenPan Skillets
If you've accidentally burnt oil in your Green Pan, don't worry. Here's how to get it clean again.
First, fill the pan with hot water and let it soak for a few minutes.
Then, add a squirt of dish soap and scrub the pan with a non-abrasive sponge or brush.
Rinse the pan with hot water and dry it thoroughly.
Green Pan Maintenance Tips
To keep your Green Pan in good condition, it's important to follow a few simple maintenance tips.
Tip 1: Avoid using metal utensils
Metal utensils on GreenPan cookware can cause scratches. Instead, opt for silicone, wood or nylon utensils.
Also, avoid cleaning GreenPans with steel wool or scouring pads, as these can damage the ceramic coatings of your pans.
Tip 2: Only Cook with Medium Heat
GreenPans are designed to be used on medium-low to medium heat. Avoid high heat cooking, as this can damage the pan.
The Thermolon technology of the pans means that GreenPan skillets can heat up quickly and evenly without needing to use anything over medium heat.
Tip 3: Don't put your GreenPan in the dishwasher
While GreenPans are technically dishwasher safe, it's best to hand-wash them.
That goes for pretty much every kind of cookware; the dishwasher is just too harsh on pots and pans and will inevitably cut their lifespan down.
Tip 4: Store them properly
When you're not using your GreenPans, be sure to store them in a cool, dry place. Try to avoid stacking them, as this can cause scratches.
If you do stack your pans, consider buying a set of pan protectors to put in between them.
Tip 5: Use high-smoke point oils or butter while cooking
GreenPans are made with a non-stick ceramic coating, which is free of harmful chemicals like PFOA and PFAS. This means ceramic pans and nonstick pans are similar, but ceramic pans have an added health benefit.
To help extend the life of your pan's non-stick coating, be sure to use butter or high-smoke point oils while cooking. This will also help your food brown evenly and prevent sticking.
Don't use spray oils, however; these can actually damage the nonstick ceramic coating over time.
