Unfortunately, even the most expensive and high-quality frying pan can become unusable if you don't take care of it properly. In particular, it is important to clean it regularly. One of the most common problems is soot, which forms on the surface of the pan as a result of burning fat.

UAportal will tell you how to clean a frying pan easily and quickly. If you do not remove the carbon regularly, it can cause damage to the pan and deterioration of its quality.

There are several ways to clean the frying pan from the outside at home. Here are some of them:
