I inherited a nonstick frying pan that has lost most of its nonstick coating. The surface has rust spots where the coating is gone.
It's a solid, heavy pan and I'd like to rescue it if I can. Do you have any ideas?

Julie, we're going to go the conservative route on this one. Let the pan go. You just don't want to deal with flaking nonstick coating in your food, or a rusty taste from the metal beneath. It's best to just recycle the pan and find yourself a good new one.
