Burned gunk on outside of Creuset

ProfessorBear | Mar 2, 2011 11:32 AM

Hey folks -

I know I'm one of the chief evangelists of Barkeeper's Friend. But this one's got me in a stew. I guess I've always kept mine nice and clean - so that I didn't ever have to face this.

I picked up a Le Creuset round skinny grill pan on ebay for a song - $23. I couldn't not. Anyway, it's gunked to death on the outside. I'm talking likely gas burner fired on grease. And the Barkeep is slowly but slowly soldiering through, but I'm impatient. I tried the kosher salt paste too - and it's working better - but we still have a long way to go.

Anyone have a miracle cure or am I gonna get a real workout on this thing?

Thanks much!
