comment I left my cast iron pot on the gas stove, on high flame, and then forgot about it for 3 hours
+1 for self-clean cycle. We just did this to refresh a couple of pans. However, oven cleaner terrifies me - I would never put it on a pan I'm eating from, even if it will eventually have polymerized oil between my food and any residues.

comment Seasoning old non-stick aluminum pan?
The main problem with this answer is that the Teflon will outgas when it is heated, which is a critical step in the polymerization/seasoning of the oiled pan. I want to avoid this at all costs.
