I totally think that this is an issue between your brother/SIL and your parents. Keep on calling your parents what they want to be called, and just don't enter the discussion.

We don't really cook red meat in our pans, but we do cook bacon. This makes the same kind of residue you're talking about---a coating on the bottom of the pan that, if not removed, makes other food...
