Is my All-Clad nonstick worn out, or in need of a good cleaning?

I have a nonstick saute pan and a griddle pan that are probably more than 7 years old (I'm pretty sure I bought them before I had my first child!). I've always been pretty light on cleaning them, treating it somewhat like you would a cast-iron pan, and certainly never putting them in the dishwasher. The griddle still works fine for pancakes, but it seems to have a little build-up on it. Is there something I should use to be a little more aggressive in cleaning it, or have these worn out, as seems inevitable with nonstick?

And if I have to replace, what do you recommend?
