my 8-inch non-stick skillet (which i love, love, love) from le creuset classics (link below) is in desperate need of a good cleaning. despite the editorial review from amazon stating that this piece should "readily scrub clean," it doesn't. we use it mainly for frying in olive oil or butter and it's developed a brownish film. what is the best way to clean this off without killing my arm and scratching the finish (if that's even possible)? do you use a particular product? soak it in something? just scrub? or should i just leave it alone and call it "seasoned."
also, i heard that this type of non-stick is being discontinued from le creuset. anyone know why?
