How can I get glass casserole dishes clean?

Glass casserole dishes are prone to baked-on food residue and staining, which makes cleaning them with traditional dish soap a tough job. Even after cleaning well with dish soap, you may find that your glass casserole dishes have unsightly staining.

Our Cookware Cleanser & Polish isn’t only the best way to clean stainless steel—it also tackles glass dishes and copper cookware safely, with terrific results. Get your glass casserole dishes sparkling again with Bar Keepers Friend!
