Wagner Omelet Pan....
« on: February 05, 2020, 07:41:21 PM »
I just got my first piece of aluminum Wagner Ware, a omelet pan. I checked it against the blue book and I definitely came out ahead. Now.....the only question that I have is how do I go about cleaning the darn thing. Hahaha.

The wife is excited because she loves omelettes, and I am excited to use it because, hey....itís a Wagner.  ;)  The outside looks very good, a little grime, but nothing major at all.

Recommended way of cleaning and getting it ready for a good breakfast?

Thanks everyone,

Joseph

Look for the CLEANING & RESTORATION board on this forum.
In the Important Topics section at the top, the fifth entry is entitled ďBEST THREADS - CLEANING & RESTORATION.Ē
Click on that thread.
The second topic down in that thread has links for cleaning aluminum hollow ware.
If you need more information, just post another question.

Hi Joseph!
A picture of top and bottom of the omelet pan would be helpful....

and may affect what I would recommend, based on what I see....

(ps... include handles in pic pleez!)

Is that the actual piece you now have?

or just one like it?

Cleaning Aluminum has many different approaches... 

So I need to see yours to actually see what certain colors/debis patterns are present.

That is the actual piece. The seller agreed to hold it for me for a few days.

I would likely remove the handles,

and
1. Spray the Aluminum pans with Dawn Power Dissolver to remove residual grease. Wash well with non abrasive plastic scrubbie or sponge.

and then

2. Boil the Aluminum pans for 5 minutes in Oxalic Acid solution.  (Beware of fumes... I boil mine outdoors).  Wash off loosened residue with plastic scrubbie, and then 0000 steel wool.

Then see what you've got after those two steps... :)

Thank you Cheryl!  I appreciate the input.

Does that look like a good omelet pan to you?  Iíve never seen one before.

From what I could see... seems okay!

I have resisted Omelet Pans... so far... but I am sure I'll pick up a few in the future!
