Chronic pain suffers and lovers of cooking discussion

I have found an easy way to clean pots and pans that have stuck-on food residue. Hard scrubbing is tiring and not good for cookware. Just put a little water in it (doesn’t take much) and put on the stovetop on very low heat (as low as you can set). Within a few minutes, it will simmer the food loose. Turn off, let cool and then clean as you normally do.


I’ve found the shape of this bowl helps in that I can use my claw to pick it up. I can’t put it back down, but it does help at least a little.

Also, I’ve put our cat litter on a flat cart (it’s actually a convertable dolly that I’ve put a piece of wood on it), and I wheel it to our porch and clean it out without any bending over.

Mental note to self: I really need to get around to reorganizing this stuff, O_o.

That’s a great idea! You’re good at DIY so maybe you can come up with some more ideas to make your life easier.

WOOOT! I’ve had this cheese for quite some time, and I was hoping because it’s in the wax I wouldn’t have to be too pressed to use it quickly, and I was right. Not only did it stay good for much longer, our fridge crapped out so it even stayed good sitting in a cooler chest for a week.

So, YAY!
