Question about The Kitchen Appliances - Others
How do I clean the melted plastic spatula remnants off the non-stick pan and ensure it is still safe to use?
Try Mr Clean scrubbing pan it is like using a fine sanding pad and should not damage your pan. Hope this helps.

Put on medium heat and pick it off with a plastic knife or plastic scraper before it melts. they're harder plastic and wont melt as fast

You could gently reheat it then immediately wipe off the plastic with a soft cloth. However I wouldn't know if i would be safe to use. The plastic wouldn't harm you but if the non stick part is comig ff that's up to your judgement. :-)

Contact these guys and they should be able to supply replacement grill plates cheaply; http://www.esalton.com/control/contactus In general the current view is that low quality aluminium alloys, when used for cooking can put enough aluminium into the food over a long period of time to POSSIBLY influence certain conditions such as alzheimers disease, amongst others. There is a certain amount of aluminium in many things we eat or drink, regardless of what it is cooked in. If you use the grill every day then i would recommend replacing the plates, especially if the aluminium itself is becoming pitted, however I have used similar, lower quality grills before with coating worn and haven't gone mad yet. If in any doubt then replace the plates, but i think you are being over cautious here. If you find that food is now sticking to the grill, try grilling half a handful of salt with a little vegetable oil for 10 minutes or so, spread over the whole plate - a certain amount of "non-stick" can be achieved like this, although if cleaning the plates with detergent, this will soon need doing again. Hope this helps :)

I find that in viewing this site that the listed " solution" is not a solution at all! This skillet has a defective design and coating and should be recalled!

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.
Your problem is: Children tried to surprise you by doing dishes. The plastic spatula melted and stuck on the heating coil on the bottom
This is a common problem. First, thank the children, it really wasn't their fault.
It's going to take some effort but you'll have to scrape/remove the plstic from the element. Replaceing the element is not a repair I recomend for the average homeowner.
Feel free contact me again!
