The melted plastic bag to pot was a very scientific experiment. I divided my pot into 3 sections and used each product on the corresponding section.
and the winner goes to…
1st place: Goo Gone! The spray nozzle allows for exact aim and it required the least amount of tough scrubbing.
Have you ever stuck a plastic bag to a pan? I’d love to hear I’m not the only too-speedy-for-my-own-good cook! What did you use to clean your pan?

I just melted a plastic bag to the side of our pellet stove, what should I use, goo gone and scrupulous with magic eraser.
Thanks for this. The old, gross shelf liner in my apartment got stuck to the bottom of my favorite pot and I was so afraid I would have to throw it out.
Ok… this is really helpful. I've done this in past and will doubtless do it again. Goo-gone will be my choice next time!
Happy to hear I'm not the only one! Although, it sounds like mine was a little messier 🙂
I melted the bag to the surface of the stove! The oven was on and I didn't even think about the stove top being hot. I set the bread down for a minute and when I picked it up the whole side was melted to the stove! Aaaaaaarrrgggghhhhh! However, I love GooGone, and it took it off without any scratching to the surface of the stove. So don't feel stupid. I think mine was waaaay stupider (is that a word?)!
I'll confess; I've melted a plastic bag onto a pan. In my case, the situation was that the plastic bag was overhanging the pan that was on the stove (the stove was not on) when the oven was on quite hot. My stove heats up when the oven is on, the pot got warm from the stove, and the plastic, well, it melted. It was only a small amount, and it was only on the handle of the pan, so I just pulled off what I could and let it be.
