Help! I ruined my NEW pullman loaf tin
Please help me find a way to make my pan un-sticky. I just bought it yesterday, and decided to follow the included instructions on seasoning it:
- "bake" at 150C for 20 minutes
- while tin is still warm, apply shortening to the insides (I used canola oil as I don't have shortening)
- then bake at 240C for another 20 minutes.
I've used regular cooking oil to season frying pans in the past so I thought, why not use canola? But halfway through "baking" the tin, the house filled with a burnt plastick-y smell. Ugh. When the 20 minutes were up, I retrieved my tin and to my dismay, it had developed yellow blotches/stains.
Some of the oil had pooled to the bottom and I tried to wipe it off with a kitchen towel, but it was very sticky. I let it cool, but now, I not only have a yellow-stained tin, the bottom and a few sides are sticky! And to think I went through all this trouble just to make my pan as NON-STICK as possible.
Is there any way to reverse the damage? Please help!
The tin is aluminum with steel siding.
