My good friend Kyle, a great mechanical engineer, taught me how to get that initial sticker off a pan.
Boil water in it and the sticker will come off.
I spent days trying to get it off. And the sticker on the pan never came off. I left that pan in my room for 2 months. Every time someone visited, they asked me why a pan was sitting under my dresser.
Thanks to Kyle, I won’t have to answer that question.
