It's not pegao if it wasn't cooked in a Puerto Rican caldero. Order yours today.

What life-changing hint did I learn from "The Rican Chef"? No more scrubbing calderos! Simply add water and a bit of bleach to even the nastiest caldero, filling it to cover the parts that need scrubbing.  Let the water boil for about 10 minutes or so and then dump the water and use a brush to wipe clean. You can do this with any pot or pan that needs scrubbing. Remember you heard about it from The Rican Chef!
