CHOW Tip: How to Clean Up Dried-on Rice []


  • Same goes for me too, soaking in water does the trick. Rice is starch – starch dissolves in water! Even when burnt!
    Detergent is a De-greaser, vinegar contains ascetic acid – solvent.
    Geez, some of these food hacks are really a waste of time and resources!

    I looked at the “Cooking perfect rice” clip, Good practical tip, but no mention of quantities! So if you add too much water, you still end up with glue!

  • Never had a problem with soaking either. It’d have to be some very seriously burnt rice for it to require this (unless you don’t have an hour to wait for the rice to soak).

    • Thanks for the vinegar tip from Chow. I had a seriously burnt and encrusted pot having mistakenly turned to gas UP full, instead of turning it off! Soaking for days did nothing, but the vinegar and soap method did the job brilliantly.
