If it's a non-stick pan I always wait until it cools down then wash it like i would any other pot.....Except my Dutch Oven of course.

Every once in awhile my stainless steel pan will cause food to stick. I just run very hot water into the pan, add a squirt of Dawn detergent and let it sit on the stove til dinner is done. I then clean the pan and if any stubborn pieces stick, I use SOS pads. Never had a problem. This is why I love my Cast Iron. Never sticks.

When my food sticks to the pan, I like to put some wine vinegar, boil it and switch it off. Let cool. It works like magic.

I do the same thing. Sometimes you get oil stains on the sides so I'll use the blue Scotchbrite pads and some BKF.

I rarely use a nonstick pan, but when I do it's just soap and water.
