Getting burnt milk off SS hob was created by Andrea
Foolishly, I turned my back for half a minute, and the milk I was heating boiled over in a big foaming mess. Even more foolishly, I cooked tea on the same burner figuring I'd just clean up the whole hob when I was finished with it and it had cooled down. So the milk was pretty encrusted on the stainless steel. Got most of it off after LOTS of scrubbing, using Jif and Simple Green, made into a paste (this DOES work, most of the time... this is the first time it hasn't actually). There's a bit of it that just won't come off. Any ideas about how to power through it and get it off?

Coarse steel wool scourer just as you would use for a similar encrustation on a stainless steel pot.

I should have mentioned that that's what I used already... I use those gold pot scrubbers that work a treat on pots and pans. :rolleyes:

800 grit sandpaper works in extreme cases when all else has failed. You might have to polish out a few small scratches afterwards if you are fussy.

I wouldn't put anything like a wool scourer or other things like sandpaper anywhere near stainless steel. You will end up with scratches that will forever hold things that will not be easy to clean out. Try first of all a paste made up of baking soda. leave on to soak. If that does not move the burnt milk, try a paste of dishwashing powder (dishwasher detergent) also leave to soak. It is caustic, so take precautions not to get it on your skin. If you don't use a dishwaher, borrow a bit of powder from a friend who does. This should shift it. Finally if there is still a little bit of stain left behind, you can get stainless steel polish that should bring your SS back to looking pristine.

Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

washing soda sprinkled on with water, or sodium hydroxide (lye)

Some people are so poor, all they have is money.

Hi, I have been told that Rhubarb chopped up with some water and cooked and left in the pot until cold will remove it. I have done that when things like the potatoes have boiled dry or worse. It worked fine its the oxalic acid I would suggest that does the job. Cheers.

Cheers
