is my Demeyere saucepan kaput?

montrealeater | Oct 2, 2012 04:53 PM

So I boiled some water in a Demeyere saucepan, forgot it and it sat there for about 45 mins - 1hr on the heat (medium high, electric element) AFTER the water boiled off. It appears burnt on the inside bottom - scrubbing it does remove some of the burnt stuff and I'm wondering if it's OK to use steel wool on it because it's going to take ages just using a scrubbie. Also, is this dangerous in any way? Is this saucepan still useable? It did not warp - there's no sign other than the burnt stuff that it went through an ordeal. It HAD to be my good saucepan, too, argh.

Can it be salvaged?
