Last night I spent hours scraping, chiseling, and melting with my trusty heat gun.  I have a few scraped knuckles, but I didn't hit the element, not even with the awl and hammer.  So not only does my fridge still work, I have freezer space I've never had before.  I bought these for Matt last xmas, and now we can finally use them.  Also pierogies, so excited!
