It's not always specified, but plain glass is dishwasher safe, and the knob and its fastenings must be able to take steam. That's not to say there won't be a bit of an issue - on some of ours there's a gap under the knob that fill with water in the dishwasher - and not necessarily clean water. This is especially true if the screw needs tightening. Ours ...

The lids are most likely dishwasher safe. Factors in dishwasher safe designation: Will the item be damaged by high temp water? (probably not, this is a pan) Will the item be damaged by the drying cycle heat elements? (probably not, it was designed to take high heat) Is the item susceptible to the corrosive detergents used in dish washing? I think most ...

The stainless steel used for edges is not the same kind of stainless steel that is used for pots and bowls; it can be hardened far better but is by far not as corrosion resistant. Look up 300 vs 400 series of stainless steels. No one would usually make a sharp knife out of 300 series unless they are making a dive knife. Also, especially expensive knives are ...

Dishwashers will heat the blade to a temperature that changes the structure of the steel itself so it will not keep a sharp edge. It only takes one time in the dishwasher for this to happen so if yours has taken that trip through--too late. If your knife is brand new--just be hyper-vigilant that one ever puts it in.

A cooker/range hood. The proper sort will suck in all that greasy fumes, pass them through a carbon filter (which needs changing) and vents it outside, or upwards(in smaller kitchens without a place to vent it. Its also helpful if you're cooking something that may have irritating fumes. There's pretty much nothing that will mitigate the problem as well.

If this is really stainless steel, all parts of it, EZ-off oven cleaner should be ok for it. I have used it to get the jellied oil off of stainless steel items, with good success. Spray it on, and let it sit a few minutes, approx 2-10 maybe, then wipe it off. One of my pots had grease cooked on for decades, and it needed multiple treatments,but it was ...

If a dishwasher is present, get dishwasher-safe boxes with a lid on them, and store less frequently used items in these boxes. Whenever doing a "deep clean" of your kitchen, put the boxes in the dishwasher while sorting out the contents.

Use less fat and a lower temperature. Can also use grease a screen. Grease will vaporize and then condense on walls / surfaces. Without a fan that is going to happen. Can also bake or crock or ....

I use a hard metal spoon to scrape as much as I can, then use a wire scrubber with a cleanser like Comet. And it can take many repeated scrubbings, so let the pot go and get to it here and there. Never cook beans in a pot you use every day! Good luck to you! PS: If you burn your beans and they taste funky, try stirring in a big spoon of peanut butter. It ...

You can either add a lot of vinegar (to get above the problem area) -- or you can try to displace the vinegar so you don't need as much. Find a smaller pot and fill it with water and set it in the center of the pot to clean, and then pour vinegar between the two pots (or pot & item). Although I said 'fill it with water', you only really need a little ...
