A friend told me to wash the egg pan in cold water and, dontchaknow, it works like a charm! Instead of gluing itself semi-permanently to the pan, the cooked-on egg just LIFTS OFF.
I’ve been experimenting with cold water and discovered two other places it works a bazillion times better than hot.
One is the oatmeal pan. Right after serving, I fill the pan with cold water. When I’m ready to wash it, the oatmeal comes right off.
Two is the mesh basket in my juicer. I just did it in cold for the second time and I’m AMAZED at how much faster and easier it is than when I was using hot!
