It contains a variety of unfortunate (and hazardous) chemicals and heavy metals. Best to not use those for cooking or anything else. Recycle it at the scrap metal yard.
P.S. I always keep an eye out for scrap metal, especially on trash pick-up day. I gather washing machines, bags of aluminum beer cans, old gutters, burnt out bar-b-cues, etc. Once or twice a year I make a nice extra income, --and help Earth.

1. Remove the handle, drill a few drainage holes in it, nail or screw it to a large block of wood/concrete, and use it as a feeder in a chicken pen – stops them tipping it over, easy to clean with a brush and hose, the drainage holes stop messy food from going rank in the pan.
2. Melt lead in it to make fishing sinkers – disclaimer attached!
Another could be drilling a few holes around the rim, use some wire or twine and hang it up as a bird feeder/waterer - the handle acts like a perch.

I missed my notification about replies! Thanks, everyone. I didn't know that pans were accepted at scrap metal yards - I've never had metal to scrap. I think I'll end up using it as a bird feeder. The lip and handle will give the birds something to sit on, and it will be sturdy in the wind. (We get 15-25 mph winds regularly.)
