    I tested the link and it opened for me. Perhaps my server was having problems this afternoon. Hopefully any problem is now resolved and the link should open.

    The single-edged razor blade worked like a charm, Concetta!! I was standing there FOREVER, but it finally chipped off (esp. after the baking soda soak). I'll try the 409 maintenance also along with the blade too. Thanks.

    For those who know Pampered Chef, the scraper that comes with all the stoneware works like a charm, and way safer than a razor blade, to scrape off baked-on gunk!
