How to Restore the Nonstick Coating of a Frying Pan: A Simple Trick Will Help

Damaged non-stick coating can be repaired with improvised means.

All pans with non-stick coating sooner or later fall into disrepair, even with careful handling.

How to restore the non-stick coating with milk

Milk under high temperatures reacts with Teflon and restores the coating of the pan. Pour fresh milk into the frying pan so that it completely covers the bottom. Turn on low heat and boil the milk for 5 minutes. Then drain the milk and rinse the pan with warm water and a soft sponge.

How to restore the nonstick coating with salt

Rinse the pan with detergent and a soft sponge. Place over high heat and heat well. Sprinkle salt over the bottom of the pan and heat until the salt turns brown. Then dump out the salt and wipe the pan with a damp cloth. After this procedure, the food will stop sticking.

How to Repair Nonstick Coating with Vinegar

For this method, you will need 150 grams of vinegar, 2 tablespoons of baking soda, and 250 grams of warm water. Mix these ingredients directly in the pan you want to fix. Turn on the heat on the stove and simmer the mixture for 10 minutes after boiling. Pour the mixture out and rinse the pan. Then lightly heat a clean frying pan and apply 1 tsp. of sunflower oil to the warm bottom. After that, rinse the pan again.

How to Repair Nonstick Coating with Spray

If improvised means do not help – buy a special spray to restore non-stick coating. You can buy it at a hardware store or a frying pan store. Then apply according to the instructions. In most cases, the spray is applied to the bottom of the pan, and then put the dish for 45 minutes in a red-hot to 200 ° oven.
