Turning a non-stick frying pan into a regular frying pan?

Dave MP | Jan 17, 200703:04 AM     71

Hello

In my apartment, we have a pretty cheap (from Target) non-stick frying pan...it was new about 6 months ago, but lately, pieces of the non-stick coating have started to chip off. Needless to say, I don't want little black pieces of non-stick material in my food, so I need to do something about this pan.

I have heard (from a not super reliable source) that I might be able to do something to completely remove the non-stick material from the pan, and convert it into a regular frying pan. Is this true? Has anyone done this? Or do I need to just throw this pan away and buy a new one (which this time won't be non-stick).
