Put on medium heat and pick it off with a plastic knife or plastic scraper before it melts. they're harder plastic and wont melt as fast

You could gently reheat it then immediately wipe off the plastic with a soft cloth. However I wouldn't know if i would be safe to use. The plastic wouldn't harm you but if the non stick part is comig ff that's up to your judgement. :-)

SOURCE: Non-stick surface damage

Contact these guys and they should be able to supply replacement grill plates cheaply; http://www.esalton.com/control/contactus In general the current view is that low quality aluminium alloys, when used for cooking can put enough aluminium into the food over a long period of time to POSSIBLY influence certain conditions such as alzheimers disease, amongst others. There is a certain amount of aluminium in many things we eat or drink, regardless of what it is cooked in. If you use the grill every day then i would recommend replacing the plates, especially if the aluminium itself is becoming pitted, however I have used similar, lower quality grills before with coating worn and haven't gone mad yet. If in any doubt then replace the plates, but i think you are being over cautious here. If you find that food is now sticking to the grill, try grilling half a handful of salt with a little vegetable oil for 10 minutes or so, spread over the whole plate - a certain amount of "non-stick" can be achieved like this, although if cleaning the plates with detergent, this will soon need doing again. Hope this helps :)

I find that in viewing this site that the listed " solution" is not a solution at all! This skillet has a defective design and coating and should be recalled!

Hi amsaunders5,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: Children tried to surprise you by doing dishes. The plastic spatula melted and stuck on the heating coil on the bottom

This is a common problem. First, thank the children, it really wasn't their fault.
It's going to take some effort but you'll have to scrape/remove the plstic from the element. Replaceing the element is not a repair I recomend for the average homeowner.

Feel free contact me again!

Gouges in ceramic stovetop. Roasting pan set on a very hot burner. Pan had remnants of plastic packaging on the bottom. Plastic packaging hit the burner and explosive bits of ceramic blew up.


Lots of plastics have a very low melting point and such plastic coming into contact with a very hot surface would probably vaporise fairly explosively and that is likely to be the cause.

Is it possible to restore the teflon surface of teflon coated pans on which the surface has become scratched (in this case Jamie Oliver Tefal Frying pans)


No. There is no effective repair procedure for the pan once the teflon coating has become scratched down to the bare metal or begins peeling off.

You can continue to use the pan safely, but the non-stick surface will not be as effective as an undamaged coating would be.

Never use metal forks / spatulas / utensils on a teflon coated pan.

Instead try using thermal rated plastic, teflon, or wooden spatulas which will not scratch the pan coatings.

Good luck.

I have the porcelain coated pans and the kids burnt chilled cheese and just can't seem to get it clean now


You can use spray-on oven cleaner, such as "Easy Off" or any similar store brand. Do not use oven cleaner on Aluminum pans, pans with non-stick coatings, or pots/pans with plastic or rubber handles. Wear rubber gloves when working with oven cleaner. It is a very powerful cleaner and can burn your skin.
  1. Put the pan in your empty kitchen sink.
  2. Spray it on generously with oven cleaner.
  3. Leave it overnight, 8 hours or so.
  4. In the morning thoroughly rinse and wipe all the areas you sprayed, including the sink.
You should have a clean pan and a clean sink. Refer to the oven cleaner's label for further instructions and safety hazards. Choose the type of oven cleaner that suits your needs. In my experience, "Fume Free" oven cleaners take longer and don't work as well. Seemingly, the more noxiously fumed cleaners, ie ones containing Lye (Sodium Hydroxide), work better and faster.
This works for porcelain coated pots/pans, stainless steel, steel, glass, etc. Do not use oven cleaner on aluminum pans, pans with non-stick coatings, or pots/pans with plastic or rubberized handles.

I have a black sticky residue on the non stick surface of my cooks essentials 12 inch frying pan. I can not clean it off and the non stick properties of the pan is gone, I think due to this surface...


Go to epinions.com, type your product and find you are not alone. Besides, as there is no cure to baldness there is no such thing as a perennial non stick pan. All coatings invented eventually succumbs to the wear and tear produced by temperature changes, contact with food and related chemistry, detergents, scrapping, etc. Consider the possibility that some of that non stick material may be ingested unconsciously.

Using a Farberware 12 pan coating comming off


non stick coating are volatile and have a short life span depending on the frequency of cooking and washing which wears it out if you are a keen amateur cook/chef my advice is go for HARD ANODISED which is russian space technology in your kitchen or classic copper pots/pans but they are costly,
to help preserve your non stick 1. do not wash straight after let it cool down, 2. always use plastic or wood utensils.3. be gentle,
hope it helps.

Bread stick in pan


I have the same problem too, I just use a plastic or silicone spatula, the kind that you use to scrape the cake mixture off the sides of the bowl, just use the thinnest one you can, I also try to loosen the bread loaf by moving the part that moves the blades, just move it a little, back and forth and try to shake your loaf out. I hope this works.

How to clean electric griddle


Hi there!

When it is warm, use a spray cleaner and paper towel to wipe up the grease.
Wooden or non-stick spatulas make excellent scraping tools to take the worst off first.

Use paper towel to wipe up.

For really stubborn deposits, use an oven cleaner - and cover with plastic film. Check in 1 hour, and clean as above.

Soda Crystals dissolved in hot water are excellent at cutting through grease, but may affect aluminium. They work out cheaper than many commercial products.

Hope this helps you.

I have thin baked on sticky residue in my microwave. How do I clean it without damaging it?


Wet a hand towel or multiple layers of paper towel and lay it over the sticky residue and turn the unit on high for 20 to 30 seconds to heat it. Then use a plastic spatula to scrape it off. The heating should loosen it up and the plastic spatula should be safe to scrape without damaging it.
