Okay, this is just like Heloise. Only better.
I was looking for an image to depict my destroyed All-Clad 2-quart pan and this image pops up. A pan whose owner thinks it is a burnt image of Elvis. So if all you have is a burnt pan, you are so much better off. Because you only need help for your burnt pan, not psychiatric care for your Elvis idolatry. I am all over Elvis, but this kind of thing scares me. Like Jesus toast and all that. Really. Just take your meds and go back to bed. Or sell it on eBay. Those people love that shit.
However. If you burn the living tar out of your All-Clad pan such as I did recently while making applesauce, I have a remedy.
I thought I had ruined my pan because it was the serious burnt-on business that wouldn't budge even with heavy scrubbing. The blackness seemed burnt into the pan. No amount of scrubbing would move it.
Voila, the remedy:
2 T. hydrogen peroxide
1 T. dish soap
2 inches of water
large-ish sprinkling of baking soda
Boil for 5-10 minutes. It will literally lift off the pan. Watch it because it will bubble up like mad.
Hopefully you are not such a clod in the kitchen as I (am). If you are, you're welcome.
