How to clean a burnt pan

1. Fill the pan with water and throw in a dishwasher tablet or 1 tbsp biological washing powder.

2. Place it on the hob and bring to the boil. Leave to simmer for around ten minutes. All those nasty burnt bits will simply lift away, leaving your pan as good as new.

3. Repeat as necessary, then wash thoroughly as normal. You can also use this method for hob-safe roasting tins.
