Yeah cooking odors are tough to get rid of.

I hate when that happens!
First of....clean out the pan and throw away any paper towels outside.
Second...pour some vinegar in a bowl and set out....preferably white vinegar, but apple cider or red will work if need be. Vinegar smells, yes...but it dissipates quicker than most odors and wil take the odors with them. A little trick I learned when we used to have parties and people smoked in the house.

Yep the vinegar thing works for pet odors too.
