This one one of the many, many, many things I've learned in the 9 mos. I've been here. And it's still one of my favorite little skills because now I make sauces all the time!

I'm with Ella. Leave the pan to soak as soon as you've finished cooking and then use ordinary washing-up liquid, hot water and the soft spongy side of the pan scrubber.

If the pan has an encapsulated disc bottom you shouldn't wash it til it cools- the two metals will cool at a different rate, potentially warping the pan. If that happens the disc can separate from the pan ruining it.

Or so the mfg'ers claim.
