Scorched pans can happen to the most diligent of cooks, but don't panic! Most mistakes have an easy fix. It can happen to the most seasoned of home cooks: You turn away from your eggs for just a moment and — suddenly — they've burned to the bottom of your beautiful cast-iron pan. Even worse? Perhaps a few errant water spots have left your prized pan polka-dotted with a layer of rust. Does that mean everything needs to be thrown out? Nope! Don't panic.
