I bought this pan 2 years ago and somehow I just managed to spoil the base by using steel ladle. It then became sticky to the food whenever I use it.

Overall process would take approx 2mins. Make sure you repeat this process before you start cooking. This is especially useful to avoid food sticking on surface esp eggs.

Tip: the same process works for woks or non-Teflon pots/pans besides burnt surface pans. Just rub a little ginger onto the surface every time before you start cooking. It works wonders!

Note to remember: Always do not to over heat your pots/ pans when cooking and remember to stir occasionally to avoid burnt base.
