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.
