I got a fabulous 12" mineral pan as a gift, and started in on getting it ready using the potato method in their instructions. In the middle of the holiday chaos, windstorm, power outage, etc. I lost track of the pan and burned the potato skins right onto the pan. It's special.
Is the pan recoverable? Should I just add water to the mess, boil it to soften it, scrub with blue pad, follow with salt scrub? I know the most useful advice might be to just pick up the pan with both hands and strike myself squarely on the noggin, but that won't really help the pan. Help!
