I had left it to soak for two days with bio liquid and have scrapped most off. I didn't want to ruin the enamel. It's shameful that I have been handed an sirloin and have nearly ruined it within a year sad

can you soak it in coke?

I strongly doubt that you are the first person to have burned it.

I shall pretend that sirloin isn't confusing the fuck out of me.

Might this product help? I sent some to a friend with apparently-fatal burn damage to her enamelled pan, and it worked.

Sirloin, I suspect, = heirloom.

It's confusing me too Nagoo!

Just keep soaking it and cleaning it out bit by bit?

Have you got a dishwasher?

I presume you mean enamelled cast iron, very heavy? Has it got any chips?

Have you used a green nylon scourer yet?

that Fairy magic stuff in the green squirty bottle is good for burnt-on bits

or could you maybe use an oven cleaner?

Fairy power spray

also, if you get some proper old-fashioned metal scourers (not from amazon though, they have themin the supermarket) they're much better at shifting heavy-duty filth - I use them on the enamel oven bottom & they work without damaging it

I think confused

Heirloom not sirloin!!!

Thank you. Have used a green plastic scourer. I will try the cok first today as that is the cheapest version!

Badjudgeofcharacter Fri 28-Sep-12 07:31:17

Coke even!!!

Metal scourers are super cheap from wilkinsons and make light work of everything.

Brillopad? I use that on my cast iron.
