by Independent Gal » Jan 2, 2008 Can you guys help my poor brother ? He and SIL hosted a huge New Year''s bash, and some dufus put a plastic cup on a hot burner. It''s melted onto the burner, and now my brother''s trying to figure out how to get the stuff off. Does anyone know any tricks? The burner is the flat kind (not the coil) which heats up electrically. Any ideas or suggestions appreciated. I''m sure he''s not the first person to have this happen? ?? Thanks!
