1. This is how I ruined the wife's asparagus pot (by using it as a fryer):
2. This is her corning glass pan which she loves (but why is it brown)?
The first question is that I have already tried scrubbing with normal stuff
like Ajax and a scotch-brite pad and that stuff baked onto her asparagus
cooker from frying potato wedges is not going anywhere soon.
Is there a magic chemical for getting rid of that black sticky stuff?
The second question is simply why are all the corning glass pots brown?
Can't they make them clear like Pyrex measuring cups are?
Scrubbing is about useless. I'd try oven cleaner first,then perhaps an
The brown pot is Visionware. Corning stopped making it years ago
because it is crap to cook with. I don't know if it is colored for
visual effect or the compound to take the heat. My wife had a
visionware pot and it went into the trash with the burnt on the bottom
potatoes that stuck while boiling with water.
Treat your wife to a good quality pot. There are many, like AllClad
Farberware etc. Multi-layer material that give really good heat
Corning stopped selling them in the US very roughly 20 years ago,
but brought them back very roughly five.
So yes, they are available again.
(The Corning line of cooking ware, plus, of course, Corelle,
is now owned and marketed by World Kitchen)
Knowledge may be power, but communications is the key

WTF? Even deep frying shouldn't put that much grease on the outside

When my husband blew off the seasoning on my cast iron frying pan
by using it on a turkey fryer burner, I got him his own pan.
Perhaps you should get your own deep-frying pan.
Fashion. Plus, as you see, grease and scratches show up less.
