Get a mild abrasive, like Barkeeper’s Friend. Scrub carefully. When you get to the Teflon (or whatever), stop.
You may have ruined the pan, though. Good luck!
I have had that issue before. I put some water in the pan and put it back on the stove with the eye on and let it rip for a while. Always cleaned it for me.

Try rubbing some kosher salt over the wound.
Over time, while cooking more bacon, the residue might lessen also.
I hate to say this, but at some point, isn’t the dirt, clean? Hah.
Dawn Power Dissolve (or something like that) is good for stuck-on-stuff.
Try baking soda and boiling water and let it sit awhile.
The pan might be a lost cause, but, instead of oven cleaner, try sprinkling it with some dishwasher soap (e.g., Cascade) then add some boiling water into the pan. Let sit overnight and see if that loosens the black coating at all.
Sorry about your pan, that’s a bummer.
I’m not sure I would use oven cleaner on non-stick cookware. By its nature it is rather porous and I wouldn’t use anything as caustic as Easy-Off that could be absorbed.
Is it safe to use oven cleaner on cookware that has a non-stick coating like Silverstone, T-Fal, etc.? We had a "bacon incident" over the weekend and the pan has this black coating that just doesn’t want to come off, even with liberal applications of elbow grease. Suggestions are welcome…thanks!
