Take a paper towel and soak it in vegetable cooking oil and wipe the gasket surface with the towel and also the mating surface. The oil won't freeze and the oil will stay in place for a while. ventually the water condensation gets in there and lifts the oil off, so you have to recoat the gaskets every week or two. On refrigerator doors, the gaskets have to be air tight, because water vapor moves easily thru the smallest cracks, so the only way to permanently fix this is to get new gaskets for the door
To remove stuck on food use water (the world's strongest universal solvent). But add a degreaser. Degreasers change the surface tension of water molecules to make the water droplets much smaller. Once they are smaller they can get into areas to start dissolving what it could not approach previously. Detergent being a surfactant also allows mixing oils and water. Hot soapy water works better. We used to use boiling water in a chinese restaurant i used to work at. Boiling water helps alot. Since your food is charred it is more likely carbon sticking to the non-stick surface. Your non-stick surface must not be non-stick anymore due to using the wrong chemicals or pads on it. High temperatures make silicone type non-stick coatings fail too. If there is no more non-stick coating to worry about you could use an oven cleaner. Oven cleaners are made of caustic soda or lye. Lye is made from common table salt (sodium chloride) Oven cleaner is great at attacking carbon but not very friendly to aluminums or the finished paint on any metals on appliances. Use your own discretion.
Howdy, unfortunately, when that happens it is the end of the service life of the pan. If it is a recent purchase, and you feel its a warranty issue, we would be happy to find the contact information of the company for you. If this is the case, please hook us up with the make and mode and we will get going on it for you.
If it is an older pan, there is no safe or practical recoating treatment available.

non stick coating are volatile and have a short life span depending on the frequency of cooking and washing which wears it out if you are a keen amateur cook/chef my advice is go for HARD ANODISED which is russian space technology in your kitchen or classic copper pots/pans but they are costly, to help preserve your non stick 1. do not wash straight after let it cool down, 2. always use plastic or wood utensils.3. be gentle, hope it helps.
There's nothing you can buy that'll reliably recoat the plates, the process of getting something that nothing sticks to to stick to the metal plates is complicated and takes special equipment. (it's not just paint).
however, there's a company that says they'll recoat the plates for you:
I don't have any personal experience with them, but I'm checking with them on a pot that a roommate boiled dry until the teflon all peeled off *frown*
