There are times when you can scrub your pan until the cows come home, yet your pan still doesn't smell good. And it bothers you. So, here's a handy tip on how to make your pan smell like roses again.
Foul smells in your pan occur when you have used fish or other strong-smelling ingredients. Or maybe you didn't clean your pan properly the last time you used it. Probably because you had other things on your mind.
Put some salt in your pan and heat it up until hot. Once the salt has absorbed all the odours, you can thank the salt, discard it and re-oil your pan. Easy isn't it?
