So, my one non-stick pan for the last 10 years (a Swiss Diamond) is showing its age. Anyone who’s read my posts about PTFE at the other site knows I think PTFE pans are potentially dangerous if overheated–consequently I’ve been extremely careful not to overheat this pan. Still, it has taken on a grunge that has mocked all my many efforts to remove. I mean, it’s clean enough after all the things I’ve tried, but it still has stains, mostly around the edges of the floor, not dead center.
This was an expensive gift to me, and I’d like to clean her up, at least for a decent burial.
I’ve simmered vinegar, simmered vinegar and baking soda, simmered vin+soda+soap, scrubbed (lightly) with increasingly abrasive powders. So far I’ve refrained from brake cleaner, lye and kerosene…
So, what’s the mojo?
