Actually, red heat is well above the Curie temperature for most media,
isn't it?  You could chuck the platters into the coals of a bonfire,
let them get up to a nice cherry red.  Depending on what the platters
are made of, this might even melt them, which should effectively
destroy any organization in the material that once formed a thin film
on them.  If not, it should demagnetize the coating....
