The homemade and easier way to clean broiler pan

Equipment you need: lemon juice, baking soda, brush, and soap.

Interestingly to clean the broiler pan we use a less part of the soap. Here we will use lemon juice and soda. Lemon juice for cleaning is available in the market. If you don’t have then use the extracted raw lemon juice. Baking soda is a common thing from each kitchen. As we know both lemon juice and baking soda is a good cleaner for metal. Let’s follow the step below.

  • Step 1: Detach the pan and the grill of the broiler. Poured the lemon juice on the pan and the grill. No need to put huge lemon juice to clean. Enough amount of lemon juice is needed.
  • Step 2: Cut off the baking soda packet. It if is expired then it will never work properly. Better to buy a new one. Put baking soda on the pan and the grill at the same amount of lemon juice.
  • Step 3: Wait for a few seconds. Once the mixture of lemon and soda on the boiler pan started to bubble. On the lemon juice, it has citric acid. On the other hand baking soda is a carbonate product. After their reaction it makes bubble and it starts to separate between broiler pans and spot making element like burned spices, oil and other.
  • Step 4: After 2 minute of bubbling get a plastic brush to clean the spot. Use of metal scrubber or metal brush is totally impermissible. Make sure you abrade brush all the portion of the broiler. Notice all the pole of the grill while you brush the food holder of broiler pan.

After abrade, all the part clean is up with fresh water. Even then if it will be oily, then use normal liquid soap. Abrade whole things with cotton stuff. Rest of the thing dry both parts.

Remove deep spots: Sometimes because of long use, broiler pan becomes spotty. Even those spots have become pretty close to permanent. People use the chemical technique to remove those spot. But this can be the reason for losing the temper of the pan. But using lemon can be a good solution. One those process you have to use your bathtub or large basin. First of all fill-up the bathtub with water and mixed it up with lemon juice. Sink down the broiler on the water for a night. Then follow the step what already I describe earlier on this. If the spot is deeper, then sink the pan on water for more time.
