My mom made me do the same thing!! some of my pans didn't even have scratches and she said if I'd had them for more then 2 or so years to toss them. I told this to my boyfriend who also thought i was crazy!
Yestarday I was getting ready to saute some onions on one of my non stick pans that are left, and there was a strong odor. I tried another burner to see if maybe it was just the burner and if something had gone down into the range or something, but after heating it up on another burner the odor was still apperant. Anyone have any idea what that mightbe?
Tonight i made a sandwhich becuse im too scared to use the pans...
now i've gotta go buy some new ones...any suggestions on what to get that's still relitively inexpensive? I need to go search for some old threads i saw on pots and pans....
