If painted, stripping fluid should work, if anodised, you need to sandblast.

Not Quite.

You can stip it with easy off oven cleaner (Yellow can) or Lye. You just spray it on, leave ti sit, rinse, and repeat of necesary. It just rinses right off.

Toss 'em in an automatic dishwasher. Auto-dishwasher detergent strips anodizing quite well.

Might have to run 'em though twice to get it all, but it's a pretty labor-free way to get it done.

Never tried the oven cleaner, but that would likely work too.
