OK, my first year making latkes - they turned out great. My husband is still raving!
BUT my gorgeous deep 5 layer stainless skillet with the helper handle on the far side (because I'm a weakling and can't lift it one-handed) has burnt on oil splatters all up the sides. I tried a cream cleanser and an organic orange concentrate that said it would attack oil. No go - hubby is going to bring me Bon Ami the first week of February when he's back in the States on business; but I hate to wait that long.
We don't eat much fried food, so I've never run into this problem before - how does everyone else clean their latke pan?
