I don't know what I'd do without you. I'm so very sorry for the horrible accident that left you burnt. It was all my fault and I take full responsibility. I am going to do what I can to get you back to your pre-accident condition. And I think all it will take is a little bit of Coke. (I saw it on the TV show How Clean is Your House, so it's bound to work.)
I really burnt the skillet.
So I placed it on the stove and poured in about 1/2 a can of Coke.
And then let the Coke simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Then I used a wooden spatula to push away the burnt bits the Coke had magically loosened.
I rinsed the pan and it looked much better, but still not good enough.
But after another round of the Coke cleansing, the skillet cleaned-up nicely. I love not scrubbing.
