Britcheflee said: (quoted from post at 21:20:00 01/07/13) I have collected about 20 saute pans which were on the way to the dumpster - I was going to take them to recycling as they are aluminium - however when I got them home I realized they are only dirty and need a clean - the stuff on them is burnt on grease and oil from years of use - the backs are really bad with that shiny brown glaze - the insides are bad but the bottoms are not so dirty - I tried a wire brush first - nothing, wire brush on drill, nothing, round grinder, just clogged it with goop, I have a pint of Berrymans cleaning stuff inside it and going to let it soak overnight - I am thinking that if I can get them back to shiny new I could actually sell them for more than recycle - also made me wonder if there might be a market for restaurants where I go and clean the pans back to new for them - do you think sandblasting would work? Any other cleaner you think might get that stuff off?


Sounds like a good job for the bead blaster to me. Or some agressive polishing compound and a HD buffer. Lye based oven cleaner and aluminum cookware do not play well together. It may remove the grease but you will not like the surface it leaves behind.
