A couple of max heat cycles thro the dishwasher works wonders :-X. I use an old one that I've got plumbed in down in the cellar just for parts washing.

The finish is plain cast alloy.

They were not polished up.

Oven cleaner, a Brillo pad and elbow grease all work,

Well I can use the dishwasher, I bet there a lot of people never heard of brillo pads. Elbow grease it is.
