What would be the best way to clean this???
I have an electric stove (which I hate) and the other day I was using one of those old style "painted" pots to boil water. And in a sense I welded the pot to the coil... because the paint melted and attached itself to the coil.
What I did was took the pot and coil attached to eachother over to the sink and ran cold water into the pot. Once everything cooled they separated. Now the pot is ruined, oh well.
So now I have an electric coil that works, but with paint on it, and it won't burn off. I need to clean the paint off somehow. Now here's my dilemma ... when the coil is cool, the paint is hardened and will NOT come off for nothing ... but when I plug it back into the stove and get it hot as can be, the paint liquifies and sits there... perfect to clean off, but the coil is cherry red hot...
What would be a good and, at least kinda, safe way to clean this off...? Got any ideas?
