    Our kettle in the kitchen broke, so at the moment we have to boil water using pans. Me being the fool I am turned on the hotplate with my mates pan on (with nothing in), leaving my pan of cold water on a cold plate. Thinking, hmm, this isn't boiling, I leave it there for a while. 15-20 minutes later, i realise i have the wrong plate on:

    I've managed to scrape it off the plate, but there's a foul smell coming from the kitchen now. I have no idea if the fumes are bad for you or just stink? I think its from a copper plated pan, i'm not sure. :confused:

    Should we stay out the kitchen until the fan sucks all the fumes out???

    He just got back from the library, and for a change he was lost for words! On any other day he'd have ripped my head off no doubt. :(

    That could be quite dangerous ;)

    I think the bottom of the pan remained intact, but the lower sides are what melted.

    I don't know wether to blame the light head-ness on just waking up, or for the fumes :eek:

    Considering all the silver crap that fell came off, the pan is relatively normal and solid. But i'm guessing its a bit of a safety hazard to use it again.

    Happens all the time with those damn plates because you can't tell if they are on, amount of times I have left an oven glove or somthing on them at work is untrue.

    Gordon Bennett! WTF was that pan made from? Shiny plastic?

    The only common metals that'll melt on a stove are tin and lead (solder and pewter being alloys of these) Definitely recommend NOT breathing in the fumes just in case.
