I got a non-stick pan and I can't get the label off.
True story.
But when I go on google to find a solution, all I get is a bunch of goddamn joke sites.
I lose.

I'm going to try a couple more things before I take it back. This is bullocks.

Sorry, I lol'd. But I do feel your pain, it's just silly ironic. Is the label on the bottom or stuck to the inside of the pan?

Inside. We got new ones. Much better, too.

w00t. I was going to say soak the sticker in water until the paper and the adhesive can get scraped off with a spatula or something, but that point is m00t so don't mind me. :P

Anytime labels get stuck on things I use rubbing alcohol. Don't know how that would affect the non-stick, though.

Magic eraser.

Wait, is it on the non stick part of the pan, or on the outside of it?

If it's on the non stick part, I don't know what a magic eraser would do. However, in that case, hell in either case, what I normally do is get a washcloth good and wet with hot water, work some dishsoap into it, and cover the entire label with it. Let it sit for about 10 minutes, then come back; the label should be soak through and peel off. If the label has a glossy top and paper underneath, you might need to do this twice--first to peel the glossy, second to get the rest. The second part you might have to rub back and forth w/ your fingers to get the paper to ball up and come off.

It wasn't the paper, it was the glue, and no amount of scrubbing got it off until I whipped out the steel wool, which took off the non-stick.
