Have I ruined my cast iron? (Sad)

Nocontact | Oct 30, 2012 01:15 PM

So I finally bought a lodge cast iron skillet which I love and I had the bright idea to make a string bean dish in the other night which had parm cheese as part of it. Trouble is I now have cheese residue stuck to the upper ridges of the pan which I can't clean using the boiling water technique because they're too high on the edges.

Is there any way to clean it out safely without ruining the finish? I'd hate to think I did damage to this wonderful pan.
