How can you tell if a ceramic non-stick pan has suffered damage from overheating?
Will there be a point at which the pan is no longer safe to use? If so how can you tell if this is the case?

When you heat up a ceramic pan too quickly, it gets this cracked-looking dark brown stain on it that you sometimes see cookie sheets get after many uses. I tried using boiling water and baking soda--didn't work. WHAT DOES WORK: Scrub hard using Barkeeper's Friend + the rough side of a sponge. The sponge did not scratch my ceramic sautée pan and my pan looks good again.
