how to remove scorch marks from enamel (?) cookware
Apparently, his method of "cook them until it seems like they would be done" failed him and he burned them.
I came home to find my pot burned and sitting on the counter top. I have no idea how long it's been like that, or what he's tried in terms of cleaning it. My guess? Probably a sponge and some Dawn. Or maybe nothing.
I have had this set of pots and pans for 11 years, so I don't have any of the paperwork left. I SEEM to remember that they are enamel or enamel coated.
Is there anything that I can do to get these scorch marks to go away? Or is it ruined? I tried scrubbing a little bit with an S.O.S scouring pad. It seemed to work a little bit. It looks like the burn marks are superficial, and should be able to come off, although there are burner marks from our electric range on the bottom of the pot. They are not teflon coated, so there's no danger from that.
If the burn marks don't come off, is it OK to keep using the pot anyway? My gut says "no", but I'd like some opinions. I'd really rather be able to get them off.
I seem to remember reading somewhere about using olive oil to remove burn marks. Does that sound familiar to anyone?
Any suggestions will be appreciated. I'll try any product or method to save my cookware!
