Cutter pans sticky with oily residue
« on: March 06, 2012, 10:28:01 AM »
I bought some used cutter pans that came in the mail yesterday.  They are beautifully and deeply seasoned.  Obviously from a restaurant.

Anyway, some of them have a sticky residue on them, but the residue is not uniform: it only covers a portion of the pan surface.  Imagine if someone poured oil in a pan but only along one edge and it spread a bit to cover about a third of the pan, and then left it to semi-dry. 

Anyway, I thought I'd put them in the oven to warm up the oily residue and then try to wipe it out. Should I do a salt scrub instead?  Or something else?  They really don't need to be re-seasoned.  I just want to clean the oily messy parts.

Advice?

Thanks!

Used to deal with this in restaurants all the time. It happens when pans are stored uinder a counter, right near or on top of the oven. Baking them will only harden it more. Easiest solution is steelwool. Seasoing is not a problem. They bounce right back.
