What to do with my muffin pan?

by Karen/NoCA » Sat Aug 31, 2013 8:11 pm

I sprayed Pam baking spray all over my non-stick muffin pan one day. I had been using it, but only spraying the holes the batter goes into. This day, I knew the muffins would rise up and spread out a bit, which they did. The areas with the spray, but no batter, came out of the oven a sticky, mess that would not soak off or come off in the dishwasher. No amount of elbow grease was working. Gene, being the "can do" guy has had it in his workshop for about a week, (I had asked him to toss it) trying to clean it up. He has been using degreaser for cleaning cleaning garage floors, car engines, etc. with a power washer! Ugh. So my question is, should I even use this for cooking once he finishes his job? My gut is telling me to toss it.

He could try Barkeeper's Friend. It's a pretty good scouring agent. Oven cleaner (the real stuff, not the "no smell" stuff might also work). Or you could just bake a sacrificial batch of muffins and see if the stuff affects them.

All that aside, if it's easily replaced and you don't feel good about using it, you might as well toss it.

Not sure what Gene has lying around but I would use a product called Krud Kutter--it has worked for me on every grease problem we've ever had, and it hasn't damaged the underlying finish.
