Heloise, Where ARE You?

I tried one of PW's recipes with so-so success.  My GreenPan, however, is the worse for wear.  Any suggestions? And if you're planning to say, "Eat out," I'm waaaaay ahead of you there!

If you find any tips on repairing pans, let me know because that totally looks like a few of my pans.

Which recipe did you do?

Try scrubbing it with baking soda? I hear baking soda is the cure for everything.

I always rub salt on mine. Let me know if it works for you. I'm with you on the eating out but it does not happen often enough around our place!

What about putting soap/water in it and bring it to a simmmer for a bit??? Perhaps the bits will come off???
did you try brillo pads???

what is a green pan? I have two favorite skillets my number 12 cast IRon and the new cast aluminum one that I reciently bought... skillets are really reasonable priced now. is that stuck on stuff or scratched up pan?

Your at the point where Betty throws the pan away.

I usually add water to my pans and then stir-- kind of like a deglazing, but only with the sole intent of getting the pan clean with the least amount of effort. I hope that works for you, otherwise-- baking soda? Good luck!!

I don't know what a green pan is, either. This one looks gray. Anytime I cook tomato juice, the pan ends up sparkling clean, so maybe try boiling tomato juice in it. Though it is rather shallow for boiling. Like Laura, I use cast iron skillets and love 'em.

Let it soak in baking soda and water? Or am I thinking of a cocktail? Sure add in a lime too!

Remove the handle. Fill it with dirt. Start your tomato seedlings in it.

Just out of curiosity I searched online and I am afraid I have bad news. Every single result I found was a complaint about the pans being impossible to clean with brown spots showing up permanently. Sorry!
I only cook with cast iron frypans.
