With Nellie's Dish Stick and a touch of TLC, your non-stick pan can reclaim its former glory. Here's your guide to banishing burnt residues and preserving the magic of non-stick.
Why does non-stick burn?
1. Dry Heating:
Dry heating occurs when a non-stick pan is exposed to to heat without any ingredients. Always add cooking fat or ingredients before turning on the heat to prevent this mishap.
Overheating happens when non-stick cookware faces prolonged exposure to very high heat. For optimal non-stick longevity, cook over medium-high heat, max.

Soak and rinse your burnt non-stick pan with warm water and Dishwasher Powder to remove loose residues. Dry heating mishaps often lead to a layer of stubborn burnt particles.
2. Nellie's Dish Stick Magic:
Twist the base of your Dish Stick clockwise until the Dish Butter is just shy of the bristles and start scrubbing. The Dish Sticks gentle touch works wonders without compromising your non-stick surface.
3. Rinse and Assess:
Rinse the pan thoroughly to reveal the progress. Repeat the process if needed until your pan gleams without a trace of burnt on gunk.
Additional Non-Stick Care Tips

Never leave your food unattended. A minute can be the difference between perfectly seared and a culinary disaster.
