I have two damaged tinned copper pans. Let's go with the first. I left it on overnight on low containing pasta and sauce. So I now have a carbonized pan. I scraped a lot off with a wooden spatula, but I've still got a fair amount of carbon welded onto the pan. How do I remove the carbon and leave the tin?
Pan number two. A friend helped clean up and took my steel wool pad to it. He spent some time trying to clean away the grey gunk (aka tin) to get back to the copper. Now I can get it re-tinned, but I was wondering if I could 'season' the pan and carbon-line it. Anyone ever tried this?
