Test Kitchen tips: Cleaning cooked sugar from a pot
There's nothing more frustrating than cleaning cooked sugar off a pot or a pan. It seems to cement itself to the bottom and sides, and it seems no amount of elbow grease will ever get it out.
Next time you cook sugar, as soon as you're done with the pan, fill it with water and bring the water to a boil while you're working on the rest of the recipe. The water will help to loosen and dissolve the sugar, making the pan much more easy to clean.
