‘Use the proper pans!’ Fans of Mrs. Hinch provide a tip for eliminating markings from induction cooktops.
A HACK for erasing markings on induction hobs has been revealed by cleaning enthusiasts. On an induction cooktop, Mrs Hinch followers say it’s also critical to “use the correct pans.”
Mrs Hinch, whose real name is Sophie Hinchliffe, rose to prominence after sharing her housekeeping ideas on social media and on television. Since then, the cleaning celebrity has amassed over 4.1 million Instagram followers. Her devotees have now started their own Facebook groups dedicated to cleaning and organizing advice.
A fellow cleaning aficionado asked how to remove markings from her induction hob in one of the groups.
“PLEASE HELP!” she said on Facebook. We just got a new burner, and I put a pan on it to try it out, but there must have been something stuck to the bottom of the pan, since I can’t get it off.
“Do you have any suggestions, please? We haven’t even put it to use yet.”
Mrs Hinch supporters advised the homeowner should make sure she’s using the “proper pans” in addition to cleaning tips.
“Make sure you have the correct pans for your hob,” one individual advised.
“Buy pans compatible with a ceramic hob as well,” another added.
“This occurred to me, so I went out and bought new pans instead,” a third responded.
“You need special pots for an induction hob,” another person said.
“You need to acquire pans for electric hob,” a fifth user recommended.
“They have a unique bottom that is appropriate.
“You can get a hob cleaner on eBay, and it works great!”
Only pots and pans with ferrous metal in the base work on induction hobs.
By placing a magnet near the pan’s base, you can see if it has this feature.
An induction hob will work if the magnet is attracted to the pan.
Mrs Hinch supporters advised Hob Bride, which you can get for £1.59 from Ocado to erase the marks from the hob.
“Soapy water, then scrub with Hob Brite and kitchen towel, then soapy water again, then polish with a soft dry cloth,” one user advised.
“You might have to repeat it a few times. “I hope this is of assistance.”
“A glass scraper would remove it, and I’d also recommend Hob Brite,” said a second person.
“As a cleaner, I wouldn’t touch a client’s hob with Pink Stuff or anything abrasive for fear of scratching it.”
“Hob Brite with a magic eraser sponge and a microfibre,” a third user stated. “Brinkwire Summary News.”
