I don't mean to jack your thread, but I have a similar question. I picked up a CI skilled that has the paint/ceramic coating on the outside. I got it real cheap because some of the coating was cracked/chipped off. I tried hitting it with my weed burner and got it red hot, but the coating did not come off. I've also tried a wire wheel on the coating. Any one here got any suggestions for getting that stuff off?
