Cleaning Tip for Toughest Vessel



Bill Gates Said " I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it" 

Trust me, this quote goes so well with a person like me!

I had almost given up on this kadai of mine, which I only use for frying, but just can't use my muscles to clean it. While my mind was all set to discard it, tabhi dimmag ki batti jali, bas phir kya gave it a try n result is in front of you all. Yes, without any scrubbing powder -  such a breeze

Wishing everyone a sparkling clean, festive season!

Method:
  • Use self cleaning oven mode on your conventional oven, That's it! Keep your vessel in the oven, set it at the self cleaning mode as instructed. When done, you will get the sparkling clean vessel.   
  • For my conventional oven, cleaning cycle is 4 1/2 hours.  
  • Just rinse it with warm water and soap. 
  • Make sure there are no plastic parts on, only for metal vessels. Not for non stick ones.   
  • Works good with aluminium, iron and hard anodize.  

Rush to the kitchen now, you can always thank me later ;) hehehe
