I work for this lovely older lady who is completely enamored with her Caphalon teflon non-stick skillets. She's incredibly particular about them, doesn't stack them inside each other so they don't get scratched, and doesn't even like to use a scrubby side of a kitchen sponge to clean them.
About a week ago she accidentally left the burners on with oil and food in the skillets. Now there's a gummy residue in the pans - I'm guessing it's burned grease or something - and we can't figure out how to get the skillets clean again.
I'm more of a cast-iron girl myself and don't have a clue as to spiffy the teflon skillets back up. Any ideas?
