Apparently DH used my roasting pan when flushing the anti-freeze in my car.

I currently have it soaking in hot soapy water with a few drops of bleach. Would you feel comfortable using it for your turkey?

NO effin' way. And I'd be getting a pretty, shiny, extremely expensive new roasting pan from hubby for that kind of stupid move. Le Cruset has a very nice roasting pan... just as a hint.

Nope.

*HE* would be running to Walmart, CVS, or whatever is open in your area to buy a temporary pan. Then *he* would be going to the store tomorrow to replace it.

I would. Washed in hot soapy water followed by a vinegar rinse and more hot water. I'd be fine with it.

I just asked my DH about this. He said no way. He said when you put it in the oven to cook and the pan heats up the *pours*? will open more and release that toxin more.

Please Don't do it. Just go buy a cheap foil pan to use today.

It's pores. Like the pores on your skin. The pores in the pan will open as the pan is heated and toxins that are in the metal will leach into the food.

OP, if you don't want or can't go to the store today I wonder if it would work to line the pan with foil? I think I'd do a double layer and cook it that way.

I agree though, your DH owes you a nice roasting pan. What was he thinking?

I don't get it, is your roasting pan porous? Does antifreeze have some weird property that makes it hard to wash off? Given the plethora of noxious chemicals the pan probably came into contact with during its production I'm a bit surprised that people have such a hard time with just washing it.

Anti freeze is incredibly dangerous. I wouldn't chance it, because I would never want to think I washed it just fine I watch my kitchen explode.

I was thinking the same thing-I'd probaby use boiling water in it and soap and water and then a good hot, bleachy water rinse

I'd have no problem with it at all-and I think using glade plugins is a helluva lot more toxic than washing a metal pan thoroughly and then using it, lol

DH thinks it will be fine, but I just don't think I am willing to risk it. I will figure something else out.

For the record, the pan was a hand-me-down from my mom, so I suspect it is older than most of my siblings. So not like it was a big loss, just poor timing.

Empty antifreeze containers cannot be recycled because of their toxic residue. I would not cook food in anything that held antifreeze.

Metal pans especially with any type of finish on them are still somewhat porous. It just isn't a risk worth taking.

Multiple layers of foil and cooking the bird in an oven bag is the only way I would chance it.

Bad, bad, move. Why do men do this?

There is a very nice, nearly new only cooked in once name brand roasting pan in the garage, used for fluid changes after DH used it years ago.

Our local grocers are open this morning. I'd go buy an aluminum roasting pan and use it today.

I would probably not want to use it even though I use one of those Reynolds cooking bags, but then again when I was visiting home, discovered my moms favorite cake pan is an old photography developing tray, which we've eaten cakes from for many decades ...so hopefully chemicals wash off! If still recommend getting an aluminum one from the grocery store which should be open today.

No, it'd be a garage accessory forever more if it were mine. And it wouldn't be mine anymore, it would now be dh's to do with as he pleased.

I get what you're thinking, along the lines of:
It's metal, so it should be possible to clean it back to pre-auto usage state. After all, hospitals used to sterilize and reuse surgical instruments, right? But in my mind, it just would never be "clean enough" for food use again.

I don't get it either. Anti freeze is ethelyn glycol and is water soluble. I wouldn't drink it out of the bottle. But I wouldn't fear not being able to completely rinse/wash it off a metal or glass pan either.

I guess my comfort level is set a lot lower than most Peas.

yeah, i couldn't do it, either.

I love my all-clad cookware, but for roasting - I have a vintage savory roaster that makes everything perfectly juicy every.single.time.

You can get them off of eBay - here's a sample: Savory Roaster Just look at the listings until you find one with no nicks to the finish on the inside (where the food cooks).

Your dh must be my dh's long lost cousin. A few years back, he thought my Pampered Chef Turkey Baster would make a great dropper for gasoline. He was trying to start the snowblower and he needed to put a few drops of gasoline on the carborator. He couldn't understand why I flipped out when he brought it back in for me "to wash". Then he went to WalMart and got me a cheap turkey baster to replace it. He still has not lived that one down!

Why do men think that anything that touches food is appropriate for garage work and then think that said items can be used once again for food after being contaminated in the garage after a "good wash"?

Kitchen stuff is kitchen stuff. Garage stuff is garage stuff. Nary the two should meet.

For me, it's the nature of anti-freeze. It's sweet, and nobody would be able to taste that the mixture really hadn't washed off completely. The turkey would just taste a bit sweeter.

Then, the person with the sickest liver to begin with would get very sick first . Even if they went to the ER right away, there isn't much you can do about antifreeze poisoning. That's why it's very popular as a poison and a means of suicide.

I'd also not take the risk of fumes through tin foil. Just why risk killing someon when the local grocer is open and sells roasting pans for less than $5?

I definitely think your dh needs to replace your pan with a nice one. I've seen some nice pans on sale these past few weeks. I do love my Le Creuset one. It browns the meat much better than the stainless steel ones. I have a nice one of those too, but it's been missing since we moved.

I would not want to use the pan again either. However, I doubt you would actually poison your guests if you did...especially if you washed it well.


How hazardous is ordinary antifreeze?

Two ounces of ethylene glycol antifreeze can kill a dog, one teaspoon can be lethal to a cat, and two tablespoons can be hazardous to children.
