Dealing with baked on grease on your pans or glassware? Check out how to use this baked on grease remover to easily remove the greasy build-up without scrubbing.
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. 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.
How To Remove Baked On Grease
If you are looking for an easy baked on grease remover look no further. These tips below will help you get rid of baked on grease without a lot of scrubbing.
To remove the baked on grease from your pans you will need a few things.
- 1/2 cup Baking Soda
- 1/4 cup Dish Soap
- 1/4 cup Hydrogen Peroxide
- Magic Eraser (I buy them from Amazon)
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. You can see how to do so in the video below.
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.

That did a fairly good job on cleaning those pans but I think I would still take a steel wool pad to take off the rest of the spots and shine the pans up. I've tried many ways just like you but still end up with the steel wool to take off the last of the grease. I hate to have items I love to use look like they need replacing. Right now I'm dealing with a glass top stove that came with the house and has smooth cooked on grease stains. The black stains drive me crazy and I've yet to find anything to take them off. Even my steel wool, a razor scrapper and oven cleaner haven't touched it. I'm thinking this is a stain that I'm going to have to accept as permanent. UGH. Any ideas?
Wow! They look almost new! How do you find these creative mixtures 🙂
I have had good luck finding some of the mixtures at the link below. You can ask questions and get a bunch of different ideas on how to clean things. I have found the ideas people suggest are hit or miss so you may have to try a couple of different tips before you find one that works.

This looks awesome! I'm definitely trying this one on some of my baking sheets! Thanks!! 🙂
I have another solution... only buy "jelly roll" pans. I got so sick of grease and in some cases, rust, on pans with the lip. I found the jelly roll ones and they are all 1 piece, no folds or crevices. Work great for baking!
Great tip! Thank you for sharing.
Would you recommend trying this on non-stick bakeware?
I haven't tried it before on non-stick bakeware. Maybe try it in a small area and see how it does?

Have you tried baking soda, like table spoon with dawn dish soap and a blue sponge with scrubbing side? I saw them do this on Food Network and it works! No more leaving things to soak in the sink or scrubbing pans.
I've never tried that. Thank you for sharing, I will give it a try next time they get this way. Thanks!
