I made a very bad decision about a month back when I decided to melt butter in a plastic container over a metal pot. I always use glass bowls over a metal pot to melt things, but my glass bowl was dirty and I was in a rush, lost track of time, and long story short I lightly melted plastic into the bottom of my biggest and best pot. I can’t afford to replace it, so I’ve been avoiding using it, to not contaminate the food. I’ve gotten enough off that there is no solid chunks, but the bottom is still smeared black(picture attached) from the plastic, and I’ve tried dozens of methods to try to remove this, but it doesn’t come off. Is this pot still safe to use, or will I have to live without a decent pot until I can afford to buy a new one?
