So I'm new to cooking. Had been learning the ropes of cooking since I moved out of the residence in my university and still doing a lot of damages to my cookin utensils.
Here is my problem: How do I remove grease stains from a cast aluminum pan? It isn't just a small grease stain, it's all over the pan. It started off with a rust or discoloration, so I put diluted white vinegar hoping it will remove the stain, but nope.
Secondly, I put veg. oil to season the pan and placed the pan into the oven for an hour and when it came out I could not remove the grease stain. It is sticky to touch instead of a smooth surface you would feel on a brand new cast aluminum pan.
Now the pan is sitting on the stove waiting for me to clean it. The inside of the pan is black and the outside has a greyish covering. I don't know if this will help, but I really, really want to save this cast aluminum pan! I don't want to do anymore damages
