A couple of years ago for Christmas, my husband bought me a set of sheet pans that I love. I have a large one and a small one that I use pretty much every day. They are great for cooking fish, veggies, and cookies on. The problem is that over the years they have accumulated a bunch of baked on grease.
I normally wash them by hand so I tried the power wash cycle in the dishwasher. It didn’t even budge the baked on grease. I tried using my super cheap Magic Erasers. They worked, but only with a bunch of scrubbing. I finally tried my favorite method of removing baked on grease in the oven on the pans. The paste worked great! There was pretty much no scrubbing required. This paste really is the easiest way to remove baked on grease from cookie sheets, pots, and pans. Check out my pan before. You can see the edges have baked on grease coating them.
You will want to mix up 1/2 cup Baking Soda, 1/4 cup Dish Soap and 1/4 cup Hydrogen Peroxide in a small bowl. Apply the paste to the pan or cookie sheet completely covering the baked on grease. Let the paste sit on the pan for a while. I applied the paste and then let it sit while I went to a swim meet so it sat for about 3 hours.
When I came home the paste had turned a light brown color where it had removed the baked on grease.
I just used a magic eraser to wipe the paste off and the grease wiped away with the paste! It was so easy to do and no hard scrubbing. Here is what the pan looked like after one swipe.
I used this method on both of my sheet pans. Just a couple of hours to let the paste do its thing and I had shiny new looking pans. I have since used this on glass baking items and it works just as well.
If you have some baked on grease stop scrubbing and just let the paste clean the grease off for you. It’s so easy! Check out the before and after.
