“You have tested the wrong type of fat,” says the manufacturer.

These are effective cases – but can Cillit Bang be used as advertisements show?
We test different soap clams. First out is the commercial film for Cillit Bang Anti-Fat Spray.
There they promise a quick solution to the problem burned fat in the frying pan.
Just like fixing of bad marks in the worktop and shortcuts to a clean stove, solid burn is something that most people are ready for a quick solution to.
This says the commercial film about Cillit Bang
In the commercial film Stine (teacher and mother) explains the following:
– I also use Cillit Bang to remove burnt grease on pans and pans. I just spray on and dry off without having to put it in water beforehand.
The film shows a pan full of solidified fat, Stine sprays plenty of medium and dries off right away. It will be spotlessly clean.
When is it burned?
To burn solid fat in a frying pan is not so complicated, it knows most amateur cooks, but when is it burned?
– I do not know any standard for burnt fat, says Marit Kjeldsberg, laboratory and quality manager at SIFO, the Norwegian Institute for Consumer Research.
The experience from our tests of various household products shows that it is necessary to use hard mechanical treatment and cleaning products if food has burned.
– When used word burnt, it means that it is difficult to remove or can not be removed using ordinary washing and soap, explains Kjeldsberg.
We test with light burning
We used a stainless steel pan, medium nicely used and allowed a mixture of butter and milk to stick.
Here we have based on the easiest degree of solid combustion we managed. Where the grease can not be removed with common detergents.
We sprayed on plenty of medium and dried off with a sponge. The result was not as in the advertisement, the burnt fat was almost stuck, the fat was gone.
In this video, you can see the test:
Ina Andreasen is Nordic Regulatory Affairs & External Relations Manager at Reckitt Benckiser Nordic. It is the company that owns Cillit Bang.
She comments on the test like this:
Once we have done this, we have based on the consumer’s needs. Here we know that when we talk about burnt in frying pan it’s relative to fat and meat. Therefore we have done this on vegetable fat and meat dough.
– This is not comparable to their test, where you test on butter and milk. Therefore, their test is not comparable to the commercial movie, she believes.
This means that according to the manufacturer, there should be vegetable fat and not butter, and not milk in the mixture if this is to work.
Now, we have also done the vegetable fat test (margarine). You can see the result of this:
We have tried Cillit Bang at three degrees of burnout:
Light, medium and well burnt. We have tried a mixture of butter and milk and only margarine.
Not on any of these tests, Cillit Bang does the advertising promise.
Read the user manual
If we ignore what the advertisement promises and read the user’s manual, it’s time to let the drug work for up to 30 minutes.
Then things will be faster.
You should probably repeat your treatment sometimes, but the remains will go away without having to scratch.
It may be tempting to propose the following text to the advertisement:
Spray on, wait half an hour and wipe off.
