I have a non-stick pan that seems to have accrued a large amount of grease over the year or so that I have had it. It's not a huge problem, but it smokes far more easily than I would wish, and flames a little too often. Does anyone have a good tip for cleaning it? Can I just soak it in soapy water for a few hours, or will that damage it? I normally just scrub it, but it's clear that there's a build-up there that I haven't been able to get rid of.
I know the best solution is to buy a new and better pan (this is an Ikea one), but unfortunately that's not doable right now.
I would appreciate any and all tips and advice! Thanks, everyone!
