Pots and pans are used the most in the kitchen; they are used to cook and store food and then they undergo scouring and scrubbing.
Before you use a pot or pan for the first time, wash it with hot water, let it dry and the rub the inside with some amount of cooking oil. This prevents food stains as much as possible.
You should always use the correct burner size for any pot or pan. If you use a bigger burner, there is too much heat for the pot or pan and this causes the utensil to have a lot of stains.
If you continue to use a bigger burner for your pots and pans, the handles of your pots and pans will fall off soon.

Be sure to always wash the inside of your pots and pans with a soft sponge. The iron sponge should be used exterior only. Using an iron sponge to wash inside pots and pans scratches the surface of the utensils.
