Feel free to make fun of my current baking pan obsession, but I can’t help myself. Have you seen these old Ovenex baking pans that are imprinted with a starburst pattern? I would have never thought a pan could be beautiful, but these certainly are. I’ve been slowly building up my collection, although I think a few of mine are too dirty to use for food. Does anybody have cleaning tips for removing rust and icky black stuff from baking pans? I tried baking soda and scrubbing really hard with a wire scrubber. That just made my arm tired, and I’m pretty sure the pans were laughing at me. I might just turn them into planters. Who’s laughing now?
