Burnt-on grease is a common problem when cooking, and your non-stick pans can end up with thick residue that is difficult to remove. While you may be able to scrub certain pans with a scouring pad or similar items, harsh tools can scratch off the finish of the non-stick surface. Instead, use something that removes the burnt-on grease without any scrubbing or harsh tools.
