Melted/burnt external bottom of Creuset grill pan :(

FataMagistra | Jan 10, 2010 09:27 AM

Aargghh ... a friend left my Le Creuset grill pan on a hot electric stove without switching off the burner, resulting in melted orange enamel (it's in the Flame color) all over the burner, and deep round burn marks on the outside bottom of the grill pan :(

I've searched the board and Web for suggestions on what (if anything) i can do (short of re-enamelling it). More specifically, whether I can/should still keep using it. The inside is undamaged so my instincts and the one Internet posting I found suggest that I can ... but assurances from fellow Chowhounders would help!

(and I thought I wasn't as attached to this particular pan as I am to my Creuset dutch ovens ... but it was a gift and I'm heartbroken nonetheless!)
