How do I clean the burnt bits on the green pan
My green pan seems to be burnt and I can get the burnt spots clean. Afraid to use anything abrasive.

Hi there! I thought I'd add to this :). In our experience, we've found this tip to work very well for removing burnt bits from a GreenPan: Empty any loose food, then partly fill the pan with warm soapy water. Let it come to a quick boil, then turn off the stove and leave it to cool. After cooling, the burnt food should easily wipe away.
And we generally suggest these tips for using & enjoying your GreenPan for as a long as possible (sans burnt bits!):
— As a general rule, use high-smoke-point oils (like grapeseed) over olive oil for any kind of high-heat cooking
— Try to use these on low or medium heat (at least most of the time)
— Always preheat the pans before adding ingredients
— Wash and dry by hand
All said, if you're still having any trouble we'd love to hear from you. Feel free to write
—I'm sure we can figure it out!

If it's actually burned food sticking to the pan, boiling a strong baking soda solution in the pan will release it- how strong and how long depends on the severity of the problem, but I'd start with 2 Tb. or so per cup of water and boil for 15-20 minutes.
