Our Garland H283 is putting black sut on the bottoms of all our pots and pans. it does not smell and comes off easily, but it is really messy?? What is the problem. Also, I cooked steaks in the broiler the other day and the grittle turned black, will this always happen??
Our stove is new and we are just learning.

Don't..... just rinse with hot water and dry them, the blackening is otherwise known as "seasoning" and protects it from rusting, left to soak or washing with soapy water will rust the cast iron...... if this happens you need to remove as much rust as possible by scrubbing with salt and a cut (half) potato, then wiping with vegetable oil and "seasoning" in a hot oven (do this a few times, the oil will evaporate and bake-on a protective film) think of the edges of your favourite roasting pan....... well used/cared for cast iron will almost certainly look totally black.
Sometimes theres too much air in the line. A better connection from tank to stove may help, or your running low on propane. Try cleaning the burners with an old toothbrush removing built up sut. Your flame should burn blue, not yellow. Hope it helps!
If you are cooking with propane or natural gas, you may need a new regulator for your range, the black soot is most likely too much gas being used to make the flame. But, as for the soot on the bottom of your pans, try letting the pan soak in a mixture of baking soda and water, then attack it with a brillo pad. Hope this helps!
I'm assuming this is an electric stove, since that's what the picure shows. Most electric stoves turn the heating element on and off to regulate the temperature. On high the element is on almost all the time, on low it's off most of the time. The problem is that when it's on, it's on at full power, and sometimes this is enough to scorch things like milk based creme soups.
You can do two things:
First, try using a double boiler. This will put water in the lower pan and help keep the heat lower than with a regular pan. You could also try to find a pan with a very thick bottom, and try that. It might work better.
