    Hi,

    I used to have a cook who used to wash the utensils as well. Now she has left, and I realise that a lot of my non-stick pans have a lot of oil on them as she never used to clean them properly. What can be done for that? I have tried soaking them overnight in liquid dishwashing soap, but its useless. Any other tips? I am scared to scrub it hard as the non-stick coating will come off.

    Thanks.

    keep a few tissues, and a nice soft waste cloth by your side and start heating the pan/tava. swipe it with a tissue/cloth when it is hot..it removes most of the grease.. do it a few times to remove the hard grease..now wash it as usual..

    Thanks all for the tips. I tried it, but it did not work. Maybe because the oil had become a little black. Also, I searched the net and put vinegar and baking soda into the dish overnight. No improvement. Looks like i have to write off this pan. :(

    still heat the nonstick..and just use the back of a rounded spoon and scoop out the grease..it will be easy to remove. since you are writing it off, give this a try..sometimes, the grease hardens layer by layer over a period of time.

    This stuff will absolutely work for as I have used it for years. You might need to spray it on and let it sit for some hours but you will be amazed. You can get it at many local stores. In case the link doesn't work for you, it is the Dawn Power Dissolver.
