The amonia procedure works for ALL surfaces of your pots, pans, cookie sheets, cake pans, pie pans, etc., where there is that gooky, sticky baked on and baked in shiney, golden gunk! The trick to this, however, is that you cannot place your items on top of one another unless the area is free from the gook you want removed. With your frying pan, Charlie, turn it upside down within the plastic bag, and this amonia procedure will work. You can then just wash well with hot soapy water or run it thru your dishwasher. You'll be surprised at how well this works! It's quite an amazing cleaning invention -- and CHEAP, at that!

I cook with wine.......sometimes I even add it to food!

I've burnt mine out over a fire, may be different but I found the pans need oiled immediately or they rust. Seems they rust before the pans are cool enough the oil doesn't spring to flame.

That could be that I got them too hot.
