Hi, someone just gave me some of her old cake pans and I would like to know how to clean them.

I have non stick aluminum and regular aluminum. Stained, etc.

Thanks!

I just throw mine in the dishwasher. I'm sure that some people prefer to hand wash them so the metal/water doesn't leave little lines of stain. They don't hurt anything though.

Yeah, I did that to my brand new ones and when I took them out they looked all old and ruined! I was so mad! I prefer not to have those marks, cause I'm anal about the things I eat and cook on. If it stained, I think its dirty.

Then it's the old fashion way...dish soap & hot water

SOS pads work wonders. I used them on my 18x26 baking sheets and all that discoloration comes right off. You can also get Bar Keepers Friend .... a stainless steel cleaner ..... and Cameo .... stainless steel cleaner.

But start with the SOS pads ... they're cheaper! Use gloves, though, because your nails will be yucky!!

Eh, I just gave up. I scrubbed all the pans with soap and water but then stuck them in the dish washer. Oh well, at least they are clean, even though they will be stained. icon_sad.gif

Ok, I never considered that. I use them on my big baking sheets and haven't noticed any scratching, but I can't say I've really looked for it. Could be the difference in metals ... but I'll eyeball it next time I do the deep cleaning of them! thumbs_up.gif
