Help - Think I ruined a grill pan

eatingoutdc | Mar 28, 2010 02:17 PM

I borrowed a double burner grill pan because my tabletop grill was a little too small for the number of things I was cooking.

I made chicken w/ a marinade and the marinate and chicken fat burned down together and is now stuck on the pan like it would be on an outdoor grill.

I thought the grill pan was nonstick, but it's obviously not. It must have some hard enamel coating on it or something.

I'm pretty sure it's this one:

I tried regular scubbing first, nothing. Then I went and bought some brillo steal wool w/ oxyclean. It's taken me forever just to scrub out most of two ribs, and those were only lightly coated

Is there anything I can do to clean this faster?

Could it be put int he oven on self-clean mode?

Could I put it on a gas outdoor grill and heat it up and scrub it like you would grill grates?

Any suggestions are much appreciated. I would rather not have to spend $50 to replace it.
