  1. I have a copper bottomed frypan, and when it needs cleaning, I just smother the base with tomato sauce, leave it for half an hour and then scrub it clean. Easy. No elbow grease needed?

  2. Don,t have a dishwasher, always have the d/powder which I use to soak pots, pans and casserole dishes. Makes cleaning so easy
