Keep your cooking pan in good condition by removing burnt scorched areas. (huile de fond de poele image by Christophe Fouquin from

Remove burnt scorch marks from inside pans instead of replacing them with new cookware. Removing a burnt scorch mark does not require a lot of effort, and you can remove it with common items around your house such as baking soda. Once you remove the burnt scorched mark, the pan will look good as new.

Cover the burnt scorched area with baking soda. Sprinkle the baking soda so that it is at least 1/4-inch thick over the burnt area.

Pour water into a spray bottle. Spray water on the baking soda slowly, and stir it with a spoon to form a paste.

Let the baking soda paste sit for four to six hours.

Use a nonabrasive sponge to scrub the burnt scorched area. Add water to the pan slowly while you scrub to dilute the paste.

Rinse the pan once you scrub the burnt scorched area. Repeat the process if the burnt spot still exists.
